Ha! No.

We got our rejection from the London International Sci-Fi Festival:

I want to thank you for sending us your film, it is always a tough thing to put a movie in the No pile after the shortlist pile - we never have enough screening slots, or we simply have too many movies in one trope or sub-genre (22 zombie films this year and 3 called H1N1).
Eric Ian Steele and Andrew Bellware.
The joke is, of course, we only sent our picture in so that we could get our IMDB credit. And, of course, that didn't work. It seems they've changed the rules. The fact is we're not going to get into any film festivals, even though objectively Day 2 is one of the best science fiction features of the year (subjectively second only to Interplanetary).
Eric Steele came to New York a few weeks ago and this photograph is proof. As it turns out we're the guys your parents warned you about in Washington Square Park (his mom took the picture).

Which movie got rejected? Send me all its info and I'll get it on there for you.

The recent movie to get rejected was Day 2. Before that, Solar Vengeance.

IMDB is such a pain in the ass, even when they do list your movie. I'd rather do my taxes than try to update a movie's IMDB info.

(And thanks for the Interplanetary plug!)
