Grossfest Film Contest

Hey independent filmmakers you have a feature length film or a short film that you are thinking about sending to festivals? Well, we are looking for them for Grossfest 2019! Here are the rules:

 

First, we need a physical copy of the film to qualify.

Second, no fee for entering the film except the shipping charges you will have to pay to get the film to us.

Third, this does not guarantee the film will play at Grossfest. Why? We have a limited amount of time. Come on people it’s a one day event. Tim Gross will be picking the best feature and best short film and they will receive the Grossfest movie award. Also all films will be reviewed and show up on www.grossmoviereviews.com . Like the film or not Tim will still review it.

Fourth, all entries need to be in or postmarked by June 30, 2019. This is so proper time can be given to review the movie and decide the winners. The winners of best feature and best short film will be shown at some point between 11am – 10pm of July 20, 2019 during Grossfest. Hopefully we will have a schedule of the films playing a few weeks before Grossfest?

Any questions can be sent to grossfest@gmail.com . Or contact Tim Gross on Facebook www.facebook.com/grossmoviereviews for where to send it.

Arthouse Horror Flick Coyote Releases Clip and Wins Awards

0

Here is a clip from an arthouse horror film that has been banned at several festivals and which has won awards at others, in its first public screenings: controversial director Trevor Juenger’s Coyote. The film stars Bill Oberst Jr. as an insomniac writer whose sleep-deprived hallucinations distort reality as paranoia drives him to extreme violence. The surreal shocker, which mixes arthouse and horror, is shopping for distribution and its first public screenings have elicited strong reactions.

Director Trevor Juenger tweeted last week from a festival: “someone in the audience keeps yelling What Is This? and What Does It Mean? We’re going to give him an aneurysm by film’s end.” Juenger says a college screening of Coyote was shut down in mid-film by an administrator citing “extreme violence,” while another public screening in the director’s hometown of St. Louis had to be cancelled when the theater owner refused to run the film due to “extreme content.”

 

Coyote‘s IMDb page:

 

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2385041 shows 27 reviews, all positive. The film’s wins include “Best Feature” at the 2013 Unreal Film Festival in Memphis and three Feature Film Awards at Pollygrind Underground Film Festival 2013 in Las Vegas, including a Best Actor Award for Oberst.

 

Fans of the surreal and the extreme can decide for themselves once Coyote gets distribution. In the meantime, here is a clip that director Juenger says “may be my favorite sequence in the film.” It is the moment before Oberst’s character snaps completely.
