TURN OFF YOUR BLOODY PHONE Ident Competition

One of the more memorable (and in one case, most controversial) aspects of last year’s FrightFest was the series of idents that ran before each screening, warning viewers to turn off their mobile devices or to face the horror-themed consequences. This year, the public is being invited to submit their own idents for a competition, with the five winning entries to be screened at the August festival. So get out your pencil and write down the details from the press release below – and follow @BLOODYPHONEOFF on Twitter for more news.

FILM4 FRIGHTFEST IN ASSOCIATION WITH NE’ER DO WELL FILMS PRESENTS:

TURN OFF YOUR BLOODY PHONE IDENT COMPETITION

This summer UK’s largest genre film festival Film4Frightfest is giving up and coming filmmakers a chance to not only remind the audience of cinema etiquette but also get their work shown on the big screen.

In 2012 a select group of filmmakers created a sensation in the festival with a quirky new brand of public service announcements.

Now the festival wants its audience to join in the fun.

Following on from the success of last year’s ‘Turn Off Your Bloody Phone’  idents,  Film4Frightfest (in association with Ne’er Do Well Films) is launching a competition to find the most inventive, crazy and funny ways of reminding the audience to turn their phones off during the screenings.

The competition is set to run between the 1st of March and the 15th July and will be judged by a prestigious jury including writer/director James Moran and renowned author Christopher Fowler.

The 5 best entries as chosen by the jury will be screened at this summer Film4 Frightfest alongside works from some of the greatest genre directors at UK’s most prestigious genre film festival.

All that remains is for the fans to get involved! For more information fans can go to to www.frightfest.co.uk
