Click on "Festival Submission Status"
Submitted films start with the status Submitted.
It is up to the festival to then "Accept" them by changing the film status. Once paid directly to the festival (or if the festival submission is free) the festival will change the status to "Payed". The filmmaker will be advised of the changes. Later on, once the festival selection is defined, the status change to "Selected" for the films the festival will program. Same for awards.
You will also receive an email for each submitted film and each status change.
New tools will be developped in the coming weeks and months to extend the FestivalExpress submission tools namely the printout of a complete film form.
