              I hope I'll be in the semifinals with you. Haven't heard anything one way or the other.

              EDIT: Well the dink letters finally arrived. Best of luck to everyone else.

                I'm hearing about this one all over -- it must be GREAT!

                Good luck in Austin!

                  Congrats Stephen! I'm in too! In sci-fi, not the general competition, but still ...

                  And it's funny - the notification went down exactly the way it did a few years ago. I got the dink letter days ago saying I was out in the 2nd Round, then just got an email saying I was a semifinalist in sci-fi.

                  Too funny.

                  See you there. Looking forward to taking advantage of the discounts.

                      Email? I thought all semi-fi's got a call?

                      And does this mean that the rest of us who got those 2d round letters are ALSO still potentially in the running, or if we didn't get the email/call by now it's game over?

                      Does anyone know when they're posting the official list on the website, which should clear up any lingering uncertainty?

                        I doubt if even the people who are "organising" this competition know. I still haven't had a letter, or an email!

                          Hey Lauri,

                          My thoughts:

                          1) I thought SF's got a call, too, but Matt said he tried to call and didn't have a working number. I've SF'd twice now (both in sci-fi) and never received a call. I'd written AFF off this year by the same reasoning you did.

                          2) My guess is they do a separate mini-contest in sci-fi since you can enter your script specifically in that category for an extra $20:

                          http://www.austinfilmfestival.com/new/screenplay_rules

                          So ... you can place in sci-fi and not place in the general competition (which is what I appear to have done - SF in sci-fi, only 2nd Round in the general). If you entered one of the special categories (sci-fi or sponsored award), you may still be in the running even if you got 2nd Rd. dink letters.

                          3) Don't know when the list goes up. I'll ask Matt when I talk to him. Finalists won't be determined until the end of the month. Keeping my fingers crossed.

                          justin, if you haven't heard anything, I might try calling. You should have heard something by now.

                            Received a call from Austin re: travel discounts.

                            Too little too late.

                            They should have notified me a month ago and then maybe I could have traveled to the conference.

                            Really not happy with their notification process.

                              Hey all, this is a shout-out to any semi finalists who want to get in touch. I placed in the semis in the sci-fi category and just joined this board. Feel free to reply or PM me if you want to chat all things Austin.
