Good to hear! I've still not received an email.... Waiting semi-patiently.

I feel for you on the phone issue. Getting robocalls is bad enough. Phantom ring and runs when you're waiting for 'that' call, has to be aggravating.

Congrats on advancing. Awesome news.

I also received a duplicate email this morning saying I didn't advance and a follow up clarifying that it was in fact 2 separate scripts that didn't make it.

I actually had two others that I've yet to hear about. Did your follow up give you the results of all your submissions or just the duplicate emails?

Thanks. And good luck in the next round!

Thanks!

I only heard about those three, but I only submitted those three. I'm not in any other categories. I'll keep my fingers crossed for your two!

I submitted two. My pilot didn't make it but I'm still holding out hope for my feature.

Yeah, my pilot didn't advance either.

With 9100 total entries I'm curious how many pilots there were.

Good luck with the feature.

So, I'm guessing if you haven't received a call from AFF yet, you ain't getting one.

No word yet, but second round looks like best outcome.

Don't give up hope. I know they like to speak to people in person.

I'm holding out hope for 2nd Round but a friend of mine who is a reader for them is STILL reading first round scripts with a deadline of Monday night so who knows?

I also have a friend reading scripts that are due Monday. It may be comedy scripts. My drama made 2nd round, and I got the email and letter.

So, in my opinion, calls could still go out Tuesday for what's left (shorts and comedy screenplays? Seems like all I've heard about are drama scripts and pilots).

Also, a question. Who writes the handwritten notes on the letters? Whoever wrote the P.S. note on the letter was very nice and said nice things about my script.

Congrats on advancing!

My friend is reading drama features so I don't know if there's any rhyme or reason to it other than maybe the order that scripts came in.
