We can’t all be winners but we can take rejection in stride. Salon des Refusés is an opportunity for Festival passholders to view films that were not accepted into the Festival programming. Join us at Club SAW for libations, commiserations and a little crowd validation. We know rejection is a hard pill to swallow, so bring your OIAF rejection letter for a free drink to wash it down courtesy of Bento Box Entertainment, and all festival passholders are welcome to view the refused films and meet the creators.
