Now they are asking you for help by inviting filmmakers (and film lovers) to come up with new and innovative ways to let theater patrons know that talking and texting is a no-no during movies at the Alamo Drafthouse. Let your imagination run wild! Submissions to the “No Talking, No Texting” Filmmaking Frenzy can consist of anything that you can dream up to get the message across. Check out theterms and conditions, and note that all video submissions are due by Wednesday, November 21.
Best of all? Film fans help decide the winner! After the deadline, all video submissions will be available on the Badass Digest site for visitors to watch and vote on. You will have until 12:00 PM CST on Wednesday, November 28 to vote on submissions from each of the five Alamo Drafthouse markets: Austin, San Antonio, Houston, Kansas City and Winchester. After the winner of each market is chosen from your votes, a panel of venerable judges, including Alamo Drafthouse Founder Tim League and Badass Digest's Devin Faraci, will choose the overall winner.
The grand prize entry will receive a $1,000 Visa gift card and the honor of having their video screened before all films at Alamo Drafthouse locations across the country. Also, a separate winner from each market will be chosen, and those videos will be shown before all screenings at the local Alamo Drafthouse theater. The regional winners will receive a $200 Alamo gift card as well.
