Director Michel Gondry continues the surreal efforts of ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND and THE SCIENCE OF SLEEP with this imaginative comedy. Jack Black plays a man who accidentally erases every movie at a local video store, then he and the employee (Mos Def) must reconstruct every film that he destroyed by acting them out. The movie opens at the Alamo South Lamar on January 25.
Beginning on January 1, teams can sign up at www.filmmakingfrenzy.com to compete in REWIND KINDLY, a filmmaking competition inspired by BE KIND REWIND sponsored by AMD and Dell. Teams will have until January 18 at midnight to complete and upload an up-to-five-minute, homemade, low-budget remake of a popular Hollywood film. It's free to compete and you can choose any movie under the sun to remake!
Submitted films will be screened at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema Lamar on January 22nd and 23rd followed by the AMD/Dell Rewind Kindly awards ceremony and "best of" screening on January 24. After the awards ceremony, stick around for the first midnight screening of the movie we cannot wait to see: Be Kind Rewind.
First prize is a brand new quad-core Dell editing station with a 30-inch monitor and runner up is a Dell 17" laptop. The winning films will also be included in the Alamo preshow for the duration of the BE KIND REWIND theatrical engagement. See www.filmmakingfrenzy.com for complete details.
