Am trimis ultimu-mi filmuleţ la mai multe festivaluri, ca să pot arăta măcar astfel lumii povestea liberei exprimării strict drămuite din RM. Mai demult mi-au scris de la festivalul TVR de la Timişoara că au ales alte pelicule, azi am primit mesajul de mai jos, în care sunt informat că Ultima vară inocentă a Ştefaniei Moldovanu n-a trecut nici la festivalul pentru drepturile omului de la Praga.
Asta e, nu mai am timp şi nici răbdare să bat pe la uşile lor, la fel cum n-am resurse pentru un film nou, să uimesc iar juriul şi doi spectatori aduşi de mine în sală la Cronograf, unde s-ar mai găsi, poate, o secţiune marginală în care să mă înghesuie cu povestea-mi nepotrivită pentru secţiunea principală sau difuzarea la TV…
Dear Oleg Brega,
On behalf of the selection committee of One World International Human Rights Documentary Festival we regret to inform you that your film “The Last Innocent Summer of Stefania Moldovanu” has not been included in the selection for One World 2009. First of all we would like to thank you for submitting your work to us. We appreciate this very much and we also deeply apologize for the long delay in our answer. This year, over 1 500 entries were submitted and it was extremely difficult to select only 90 films out of so many interesting documentaries. The selection committee has viewed all the films and each film was carefully considered from various criteria, where the filmmaking quality was as relevant as the human rights aspect. We were also trying to maintain a diversity of topics in the program, which sometimes prevented us from selecting otherwise outstanding films. Each year, we define several topics in advance and are looking for films matching these themes. We shall keep in mind the films that have not been selected this year for our future programming.
The festival will screen 120 films, out of which 90 were selected from the submitted films. The remaining 30 films will be screened in the framework of our special retrospective categories.
We sincerely hope that the committee’s decision will not prevent you from sending us preview tapes of your future films, in which we are very interested, and we wish you shall keep us updated about your new production and plans.
Should you have any questions regarding the selection or the festival program, please do not hesitate to contact us.
