Is Missed Connections the same that played last year at WSFF? (methinks)

Hi Niam. Nope, I didn't enter it into any festivals. I'd love to see the one you're speaking of.

Their film links from last year aren't working anymore, but this is a one liner I found about the film:

“Missed Connections,” by Mary Robertson — On Craigslist’s “Missed Connections” forum, those who regret their timidity make appeals to the Ones Who Got Away.

Hey all,

My name is Mike Byhoff and I am working for a start-up that will be producing documentaries, as well as reaching out to people across the world and paying them to shoot short (4-10 minute) documentaries around the world.

I heard about this place at the Vimeofest Awards this past weekend, and it seems like an awesome resource.

I'm wondering what the best way is to go about finding the right kind of documentary filmmakers to make pieces for this new site?
