Official Rejection: Docu

Shut Up & Shoot Pictures in association with Conspicuous Pictures proudly presents the standard and two-disc Rejection Collection DVD release of OFFICIAL REJECTION, a funny, quirky and informative romp that presents a realistic portrait of what it's like on the film festival circuit today and the toll it truly takes, on November 17, 2009. 

OFFICIAL REJECTION was written and directed by Paul Osborne (who previously made Ten‘Til Noon).
Following filmmakers through the trenches of the festival circuit over a 12-month period, OFFICIAL REJECTION takes a lighthearted but realistic look at the politics, pitfalls, costs and tolls taken on life at the independent film festivals. It features interviews with directors, producers, actors, programmers, experts and moviegoers about their experiences. It also explores the difficulties the major festivals face in trying to continue to foster new talent in an atmosphere of ever-increasing commercialism while the smaller fests struggle to distinguish themselves without access to adequate media or distributor attention.

Featured interviews include:

Kevin Smith, Bryan Singer, Andy Dick, Jenna Fischer, Traci Lords, Jennifer Tilly, Chris Gore and Danny Trejo.
