Ok, I’ve been getting a lot of questions about the 2009 Oxford International Film Festival, what the dates are, when we’re opening for submissions, and why all the “secrecy”. Well, to put it simply, we’re making a LOT of major changes to the 2009 fest, which is why you’ve all been waiting so long to see a new website. While we’re not quite ready to announce all the major changes quite yet, here’s the dates you’re looking for: The 2009 Oxford International Film Festival will take place July 23-26, 2009, and will open for submissions in just under 2-weeks from today on November 1st, 2008. You’ll be able to submit through the end of March, ’09 so no worries if you’re still finishing up a project. The new website will be up NEXT week (at www.oxfordfilms.com) and will clear up most of your questions. So thanks for all of your input, and keep it coming!
