Thirty years ago, before Nicolas Cage was “Nicolas Cage,” he was just a young punk looking for love in the San Fernando Valley. Before he was the Oscar-winning mad man we know and love, director Martha Coolidge cast Cage in her 1983 film Valley Girl, a Romeo and Juliet story with a “modern” twist. Valley Girl is 30 years old this year, and Film Independent at LACMA is presenting an anniversary screening with the director on hand. It takes place Thursday May 16 in Los Angeles and will be followed by an ’80s costume contest and party. Yes, this is the ultimate screening for Valley Girl and ’80s fans.
/Film has five pairs of tickets to give away for the screening. Find out how to enter, or buy tickets and guarantee a shot, below. Read More »

Note: The answer to yesterday’s contest, (one of) Russ’s favorite movie(s), was Miller’s Crossing. The winners were Aaron N of California and Kevin P of Pennsylvania.
All this week you’ve had a chance to win one of 10 copies of Scott Campbell‘s latest book, The Great Showdowns. It’s a collection of Campbell’s distinctive, awesome art depicting some of the greatest conflicts in movie history. (As seen above.) We at /Film have been writing about Showdowns for years, most recently for Campbell’s second full gallery show. So, to commemorate and give away the new book, we teamed up with Campbell to do something very special.
Each day this week, we’ve been world premiering brand new, never before seen showdowns. Each showdown is based on the favorite movie of one of five /Film writers: Germain Lussier, David Chen, Russ Fischer and Angie Han and so far we’ve given away 8 copies of the book. Today is your last chance and, of course, it’s based on the favorite movie Peter Sciretta.
You’ll have one day to look at the showdown, read his explaination why it’s his favorite movie of all time, and then e-mail in your guess. At the end of the day, two will randomly be selected and sent a free copy of The Great Showdowns by Scott Campbell.
Sound good? Check out Peter’s favorite movie of all time below and find out how to enter. Read More »
