Filmmaker Sent Rejection Notice from Film Festival She Never Even Submitted Work to

It's hard to work in the creative industries. You've got to have a thick skin because you're going to get told 'no', a lot. You may even get rejected for things you've never asked, as Shawnee Barton discovered. Art San Diego rejected her non-existent submission to a film festival. Here's a passage from her response:

After all this, I (half-jokingly) wonder if Art San Diego is an organization made up of art supporters or artist soul crushers. I whole-heartedly wish the fair success and look forward to seeing the work you did not reject. That being said, I do not need your flogging.
