The achingly hip South by Southwest Film Festival (yeah, that’s the other South West – y’know, the one in America) wants filmmakers to come up with a ‘grindhouse trailer’ inspired by Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino’s new flick called, surprisingly, Grindhouse.
It should be a trailer for a fictional feature, like the ones Eli Roth and Rob Zombie came up with for the real Grindhouse movie. Basically, you want something like our IRA zombies idea (but a lot better).
Rodriguez will determine the best of the bunch and show it during a special presentation called Grindhouse 101 on Sunday, March 11. During the event,
ol’ Rodders will also have a bit of a yap and show some making-of footage from Grindhouse, which is nice of him, ain’t it?
Send your ‘bit’, before February 12, to SXSW Grindhouse Trailers, P.O. Box 4999, Austin, TX 78765. There is no application fee, but the trailers must be under two minutes in length, and made within the last 12 months.
The 2007 SXSW Film Festival take place in Austin, Texas, from March 9-17. Good luck, D+Cineastes – and remember, don’t nick our IRA zombies idea or we’ll sue the pants off ya.
