Festival Ongoing Situation.
Dust still hasn't received a bite in any festival so I've been arranging to add a caption at the start which firmly states that we're in 2007, in Dublin and the boom is about to end. I feel that I can explain this at a screening or a pitch and anyone who worked on it or read the script, knows the time and place. With a cold viewing, a festival selector isn't privy to this.
That's all I will do because I can't think of any significant edit decisions that we could re-visit.
Anyway, there are literally thousands of options in every corner of the globe to submit to and shorts are allowed a longer festival shelf-life than features.
We all did a great job making `Dust' and I remain proud as punch of it.
