Relativity Media’s Rogue and AMC Theaters have partnered together to launch the “Big Break Movie Contest,” which will provide filmmakers with previously undistributed feature-length films, the opportunity to obtain exclusive on-screen distribution. Five finalists will be selected from the entries, professional trailers will be created for them by the Rogue team, and will be debuted online at iamrogue.com, where the general public can then vote. AMC will release the winning film in 50 of their theaters across the country, for at least one week.
The panel of judges include Kate Bosworth, Relativity’s CEO Ryan Kavanaugh, AMC Theaters’ Vice President of Specialty and Alternative Content Nikkole Denson-Randolph, Relativity President of Worldwide Production Tucker Tooley, iamrogue.com’s Editor-In-Chief Jimmy O, and Youtube’s “Beyond the Trailer” creator, Grace Randolph.
“Rogue has always stood for doing it your way, breaking the mold” said Kavanaugh. “We are always looking for ways to support and embrace new and inspired talent, who dare to do it their way. That’s exactly what this contest is about.”
Submissions will be accepted from August 16 through October 15, 2010. To learn more visit iamrogue.com
