Make some Grindhouse

GRINDHOUSE is undoubtedly one of the upcoming movies I知 most zigged about (even though it値l probably be a minor miracle if it痴 ready by the scheduled April release date, or get to screens as the double-feature 菟ackage they致e been pimping). And one of these days I値l actually get to the South by Southwest Film Festival, because I値l take any excuse to visit Austin and eat amazing BBQ.

Director Robert Rodriguez wants to see how many aspiring filmmakers truly savvy the whole GRINDHOUSE tone, so he痴 asking for faux trailer submissions that will be judged at this year痴 SXSW festival in March. Better hustle up, Buck, you致e got less than a month! The official skinny:

Filmmakers have a deadline of February 12 to submit their 堵rindhouse trailer (no longer than two minutes in length) to SXSW. The trailer should be made for a fictional feature-film, just like those being made by celebrity directors Eli Roth and Rob Zombie for Grindhouse. From those submissions, Rodriguez will determine the best of the bunch, and it will screen during a special presentation entitled 迭obert Rodriguez痴 Grindhouse 101 on Sunday, March 11. During the presentation, Rodriguez will share stories and footage from the making of the upcoming Dimension Films release.

展e really want filmmakers to come up with something fun, scary, freaky, and out-of-this-world for the competition, says SXSW Festival Producer Matt Dentler. 典his competition, like Grindhouse itself, is in the true spirit of innovative and fast-paced filmmaking.

Submissions must arrive no later than February 12, to: 鉄XSW 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. Films that have already been submitted to SXSW for 2007 consideration, are not eligible. The 2007 SXSW Film Festival occurs March 9-17 throughout downtown Austin, TX. Grindhouse will open nationwide on April 6, 2007.

Extra Tidbit: Zoe Bell, who will appear in Tarantino's GRINDHOUSE feature DEATH PROOF and doubled for Uma Thurman in KILL BILL, is one of two stuntwomen profiled in the excellent documentary DOUBLE DARE.
