Check your Vimeo analytics if you posted your videos there. Got only 1 view on both my films on January 10th, so it's safe to assume folks like me won't be getting interviewed... They didn't even finish watching my "Confrontation." Guess I'm not worthy this year!

I got my interview notification on January 21st. I felt my stomach sink, suddenly it was real. I'm equal parts nervous and excited. Just gonna do my best and be prepared for anything.

What makes you say that?
I am in the same place with no interview yet. Without wanting to lie to myself, I can definitely identify something of a pattern in their interview "schedule", but this is an unprecedented time - so who knows if it has had an effect. That being said, the effect it has potentially had is probably not too dramatic
