Goodbye Brooklyn

So I guess, among the many places the film won't play- we can now also proudly count Brooklyn.

Here's their rejection letter. Guess NYC will have to continue waiting:

Dear Dan Katzir,

I am sorry to tell you that your work Yiddish theater: A love story has not been selected for the BAC 41st International Film and Video Festival. This year the festival jury had difficult decisions to make in ranking the work and recommending work both excellent in its production and also suitable for the film festival program. They were very sad not to be able to include several formidable film pieces such as your own.

I hope that you will feel welcome to attend some or all of the 7 screenings, which begin on May 5 and continue until May 12, 2007. You are invited to attend the end of the festival reception on Friday, May 11 after the “After Hours” screening at the Brooklyn Museum . It will be held after the “After Hours” Screening at Bar Sepia 234 Underhill Avenue , Brooklyn , 9pm onwards.

In addition to the film screenings BAC will offer two Professional Development Seminars for filmmakers during the film festival time frame, which may be of interest and use to you. They are free and will be held at our BAC offices in Dumbo on Tuesday May 8 5:30-8:00p.m. (appointments necessary), and at Long Island University , in the Media Arts Department, Room LLC 116, from 6:30 – 9:00 p.m. on May 9th.
