We're not saying that

Awards are everything!

But it is nice to be recognized for the hard work that you do. Especially when festival judges from other cities, oftentimes professional filmmakers themselves, don't know anything about you, whether you've ever done this before, or any of the challenges you might be experiencing.

What it really says is that you mastered the discipline. It says that you wrote a great story, you planned to perfection, you solved dozens of problems, you were a good teammate, that you pivoted when you had to and put your head down when you needed to. To Get. It. Done.

If your film is on here, congratulations you! If it's not but you want it to be, then let's get busy. You can absolutely do this.
