Enter the Brattle Theater's Trailer Smackdown Contest

Brattle Theater is asking you to enter into the annual Trailer Smackdown competition.

The Brattle Theatre announces an exciting addition to its annual celebration of movie marketing and backyard fun, TRAILER TREATS. The TRAILER SMACKDOWN is a homemade trailer contest where filmmakers will compete to make the most compelling trailer for an as-yet-unmade film entitled simply "Union Street". Each filmmaker (or filmmaking team) will be required to incorporate certain elements (genre, location, character type, action, etc) in their two minute or less trailer. All entries are due by July 6, 2009 and must include a Registration Form. A dedicated group of filmlovers will gather for a preliminary judging round and the finalists will be screened during TRAILER TREATS on July 16, 2009. A Grand Prize Audience Award will be voted on and a winner announced at the event. A cash prize will be awarded and the winning trailer will be featured on the Brattle's website as well as screened prior to certain features during our July/August calendar. A $10 entry fee is required with registration for the competition. Click here for full contest rules and registration!
