Fatso 24 Hour Movie Marathon Competition

This years Marathon screens Nov 19th, so the Deadline for competition entries has been EXTENDED.

Each year we ask our creative fans to submit a video. The task is to create a 30 second 'PUBLIC SINEMA ANNOUNCEMENT'

Which is exactly like those old Public Service Announcements. You know that anti-piracy one from awhile back! Downloading is Stealing! Your PSAs will advise cinema patrons of correct cinema etiquette for the 24HR Movie Marathon. For example, No eating noisy chip packets, No hidden cameras, No smelly hot food, no cell phone use, no erections, no loud talking, no snoring, no using last of toilet paper without informing staff; just be creative, entertaining, or even deadly serious. All entries will screen at the movie marathon.

Your PSA must start with the 2011 Fatso 24 Hour Marathon Logo we have provided.
