The festival offers anyone who wants the possibility of making a fake trailer of a movie that doesn't exist and upload it to www.teaserland.com starting September 15th. The First International Fake Trailer Festival, directed by Xavi Bru, is a VAS A VER and ACCIÓN MEDIA project and will be presented during the Sitges - International Film Festival of Catalonia on Saturday October 4th.
The prize, 30,000 € for making a short film, will be handed out in January 2009 and the jury will be made up of Jaume Balagueró (movie director), Mirito Torreiro (movie critic), Gregorio Belinchón (movie journalist), Esther García (producer), Ángel Sala (director of the Sitges - International Film Festival of Catalonia) and Manel Vicaría (Vas a Ver).
For this first edition we have the privilege of collaborating with guest directors like Jaume Balagueró, Paco Plaza, J.A. Bayona, Isabel Coixet, Enrique Urbizu, Jose Corbacho, Juan Cruz, Jaime Rosales, Bill Plympton and Raúl García, to whom Sony has lent a camera for them to make their own out-of-competition trailers.
The presentation of this project will take place on October 4th within the framework of the Sitges Film Festival, that www.teaserland.com is twinned with. At this presentation, besides the trailers sent in by participants, you can also see the premiere of the fake trailers made by the guest directors.
