A bit hurt today. Our doc “Healing the Hood” didn’t get into any festivals. I only submitted to three due to certain deadlines vs when the project was completed.. but I was really hoping to get into Black Star. It kind of makes you question “was it not good enough?”. But I’m telling myself that everything happens for a reason and will happen as it should, Inshallah. I think getting caught up in the festivals, is also making me lose sight of the real intention behind the project and the fact that this is for the community.. nothing more, nothing less.
