Win at the Salon des Refusés

Posted on Mon, Aug 11, 2008 at 2:40 PM

If, for some reason, the Atlantic Film Festival jury rejected your movie about the cannibalistic mime and his talking iguana (they just didn’t get your vision or the homage to 1970s post-classic noir), there’s still a chance to invite your mom to a screening: the eighth annual Salon des Refusés, scheduled for September 10, a tradition that goes back to Napoleon’s time. All you need to do is follow these three easy steps: 1. Get rejected by the AFF. 2. E-mail your rejection letter, along with a completed Salon application form (available at, to by August 29 at 5pm. 3. Hope your film is randomly selected to screen. The Salon doesn’t worry about pesky details like juries, you’re counting on the luck of the universe in hopes they randomly pick your rejection letter.
