Hello and good day,
Thank you for messaging back.
Is the programming being done with the staff or is there a specific person to talk to for maybe next time?
Would this be different if they were to submit a request from an earlier date than they had this year, would they be able to be in Fanime? Or they would have to wait till next year?
Where they request to perform changes which department (and sometimes division) they contact, so I would prefer not to list out every possible e-mail address that this could be. We created the Event
as a means for those that want to run Fan Events to have an option instead of planning events on the side that might or might not have been cleared by us (for reasons such as security, space, etc.).
As for your question about the timing for any year, greatly varies on what resources/staffing/etc. we have available. I wish I could tell anyone that asks about performing anywhere at FanimeCon a simple answer, but it really is quite difficult and the more elaborate the performance, the more difficult it is.
[Kinda ninja edit: Note that out of respect, I can't really comment on anything that they've submitted in detail.]
