Hate to say but same thing happened to me. BP slotted my film in, and as the day the flyer came out I found out that it apparently was not going to be shown due to the fact that it wasent on the poster. I showed my film the first year of MWSFF, and supported it even since, and believe its a just cause. There needs to be a large event like in in the midwest, and BP hats off to you for making this happen.
I can see where he wants to Pro films to be able to have the pro athletes in attendance but it would also be nice to support locally made films. There is a gathering of children that like to go to shake the hand or get the autograph of Tom, Hornbeck, or Martini, and yes its great to have them witness to such a scene, but i think what he doesn't realize is that you/we would bring much more support and additional attendance to an event since there is a local push.
This will be my 5th film, and have been run through the gamete of good times and the bad. And again BP, hats off, I know what work it takes to make this event a success.
Obviously its nice to show some pro movies, but its nice to show some hard work done by the guys who get out with little to no budget, and work to highlight their region, athletes, and love for the lifestyle of skiing.
