New York Film Festival Trailer and Contest. The New York Film Festival (2013) movie trailer for the 51st annual film festival is a flashy combination of all the films playing at this year’s film festival. The 51st annual New York Film Festival will show “films…selected by the Film Society of Lincoln Center. The non-competitive festival, sometimes abbreviated as NYFF, was established by Amos Vogel and Richard Roud…Entries arrive in New York after celebrated debuts at Cannes…, Locarno, Berlin, and Sundance. They come from [numerous] countries and represent filmmaking debuts and the returns of long-loved masters.”
More on the 2013 New York Film Festival:
Founded in 1963, as the auteur theory and European cinematic modernism were crashing upon the shores of American film culture, the New York Film Festival continues to introduce audiences to the most exciting, innovative and accomplished works of world cinema. Join us as North America’s second oldest film festival marks its 51st edition with 17 days of exciting world premieres, award winners from Cannes, Berlin and Venice, retrospective screenings, spotlights on emerging filmmakers, panels, galas and much more!
The New York Film Festival trailer contest rules:
Watch our NYFF51 trailer. Then watch it again. Then watch it a few dozen more times. As you go, make a list of the films the clips come from, in order. The person who gets the most right wins!
Let’s head off some questions. All the clips are from films in the NYFF51 Official Selection. Every film is represented—many more than once. In a new twist, this year there are also audio clips from several films included in the trailer. We’ll treat these as a tie-breaker, so make sure to list those too. If more than one person guesses the same (highest) number of video and audio clips, we’ll settle it the old-fashioned way: random drawing.
The prizes remain the same and, in our opinion, they’re pretty great. The winner gets a pair of tickets to our Closing Night screening of Spike Jonze’s Her, a copy of this year’s poster and New York Film Festival Gold coffee table book, and an NYFF51 bag stuffed with festival swag!
The deadline to enter is Wednesday, October 9 at 11:59pm. Entries should be emailed to [email protected]. So what are you waiting for?
