I can scarcely believe that it’s been almost one year since we first launched the /Film movie podcast, the /Filmcast. Many actors, filmmakers, and bloggers have made their way through our podcast doors and it’s been a blast to chat with all of them about movies and movie news. To celebrate, we’ve been giving away a bunch of cool stuff and announcing winners during our show, which airs on Monday nights at 9 PM EST / 6 PM PST at Slashfilm’s live page.
This week we’ll be giving away two copies of the Criterion DVD of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Those of you familiar with Criterion DVDs know that they’re always jampacked with high-quality extras and this DVD is no exception. Regardless of whether or not you liked the film, the DVD offers a fascinating look into Button’s creative process and its spectacular visual effects.
In keeping with the shamelessly masturbatory spirit of celebrating a show’s one-year anniversary, here are the instructions to enter the contest:
1) Simply answer one of the two following questions:
a) What is your favorite moment/memory from the /Filmcast this past year? OR…
b) What is your favorite moment/memory from your life this past year, that you had while listening to the /Filmcast?
2) E-mail slashfilmcast(AT)gmail(DOT)com with your answers. Having an answer longer than one or two sentences will increase your chances of winning. Put the phrase “Button Contest” in your subject line and include your mailing address.
3) Please note that unless you say otherwise, I will assume your stories are free to share on the air, on /Film, or elsewhere. I will probably write a separate post compiling some of the best answers, but I will only use your initials to identify where each story came from.
That’s it! Winners will be chosen through some hybridized selection process incorporating randomness, weighted averages, the quality/humor/earnestness of the answers, etc., and will be announced live on the air on Monday night at 9 PM EST / 6 PM PST when we broadcast the /Filmcast live.
As always, feel free to subscribe to the /Film movie podcast using the following links:
