SHITFEST 2013 *UPDATE 2*

shitfest-2013 banner

SHITFEST 2013 fires up next Wednesday and I thought I would make a couple of announcements real quick! The plan is to have 32 entries in all and I have 28 wonderful people who have said they would submit one or two things – so there’s still a few open slots if you want to join the fun. I know that we’re all busy and people get sick so I can provide any filler that’s needed, I just would rather this showcase all of YOUR work and not my shit. I also don’t want to look like I am trying to win my own festival but if I need to fill some gaps, that’s probably what I’ll have to do.

Remember – this doesn’t have to be about something you just watched last night – an entry can be something you wrote about last year – it just needs to be about a shitty movie. I know that if I have to fill some slots I am going to use some of my older work. I know we’re all busy – so the sooner you could get me your entry, the better : )

Also – as you may remember, after this is all over there’s going to be a week of voting to determine the “Official Selection”. I’ll put out a list of polls to start the week off and I’ll keep them open from 9:00 AM the first day to 9:00 the second day and then close them. Then I’ll look at the numbers and announce the winners, etc.

  • In the event of a tie, a five person jury is standing by to cast votes for the selection that will move on.
  • In the event that the jury can’t convene because, say, someone has to go get a foot amputated or something, the decision will be made by my friend Chris SCROTEY.
  • In the event that SCROTEY can’t be bothered because he’s having sex with something in a filthy bus station restroom, the decision will be made by a man who goes by the title of THE TILE DOCTOR.
  • If none of the contingencies above are available, I’ll flip a fucking coin in front of one of the members of THE STAFF.

Also – I am VERY PLEASED to announce that SHITFEST 2013 has an official theme song!!! It’s the SHITTIEST SONG EVER WRITTEN OR RECORDED and it’s going to be published for the first time EVER on this site next Wednesday. Who’s the artist behind this magnificent spectacle?? You ask. Here’s a spoiler: me.

Lastly – earlier this week someone asked me about a banner for SHITFEST 2013 for their blog, although with “less imagery” – : ) – than the official one at the top of this page. I know everyone has their own feel about how their blogs look so I would never ask you to put something out there against your will, but if you wanted to add a banner to your blog, that would make me very happy. I’ll put a few below and if you want to, GREAT! If not – I understand! I’ll also have some new ones in the next few days with the “official” lettering seen in the banner above.

I can’t wait!!

    Okay, I admit – I’m a little confused how this works. You asked me to submit a written entry about the film I am submitting to the festival. Are people going to read our submitted entries and then vote according to the pieces we write about the film? Or do we have to watch the actual nominated movies to vote? Or can we just submit clips of the movie and vote that way? I’m not exactly sure how this works.

    Like Lloyd told the girls on the bikini bus, “My friend is a little slow!” 🙂

      Hey Gary – the concept is this: we all do some writing about shitty movies. You submit what you want and I’ll post it out here (I’ll post that one you sent me for sure). After its over, I’ll put all of the titles in a hat and we’ll draw movie names and make brackets. Then everyone will vote on the shittiest movie over a week and the winner will get a prize (the prize will vary depending on where the winner lives, due to finances). Make sense?

        Ok. And we can submit youtube clips with our entry, right? I think clips help give the nominations justice. 🙂

        You can certainly submit clips, but not “only” the clip. I think people will prefer to read some thoughts about the movie, not just a link to the trailer. IMO, I would vote for a good piece of writing 100 times before just a link to YouTube.

        Oh yeah, of course. I’m going to write an entry for you this week with some clips. And I have another recommendation for you to watch. “The Shrine”. Have you seen it? I think you’ll like it a lot!

        I have seen The Shrine. It’s been a while but I remember being a little uninterested for the most part, but it not being “bad” or anything. Memories fail me but I think the end took waaaaaaaay too long to finally finish up…

        The first act was slow, but once it got going it was pretty good, and then that end sequence caught me off guard. It seems like the kind of last act you would like.

        We’re talking about that Polish thing, right?? Or, maybe not “Polish” but set in Poland? It wasn’t bad, but not my favorite…. That mask was something else….
