I was browsing the Seattle International Film Festival catalog, trying to map my schedule through all the films I want to see, when I began to notice a curious trend. My movie “Tex: Vampire Hunter” was not selected for SIFF this year (got in to STIFF), but I have now discovered the secret to getting in. Here it is:
If you want to get into SIFF, include in your movie a scene with people in bed, and make it your signature screenshot.
That’s all, really. Need proof? Ok! Here we go.
For extra points throw in a little gay.
For extra, extra points, show three people in bed.
It even works with lonely men and their blow-up dolls
So there you have it. Over a dozen movies with people in bed in the SIFF 2010 program. As you can see this is an absolutely foolproof way to get your film in. If only I had known, I would have included one in my movie. Oh, wait a minute…
Oh, come on!
