The goal of the Golden Trailer Awards is to “acknowledge the art of making good movie trailers and to help promote film, especially independent film.” As the only trailer-centric event on the map, they’re breaking new ground and also honoring the broke indie filmmaker — it’s much cheaper to make a two minute movie preview than a full-fledged film.
This year’s Golden Trailer Awards is accepting submissions until [ November 30th, 2000 ] . Last year, the lucky winner received $2,500 and national exposure for their trailer for a film that hadn’t even been made. The Golden Trailer Awards also features and oustanding panel of judges, including director Pedro Almodovar (“All About my Mother”) and Artisan Entertainment CEO Amir Malin, among many others. Trailer categories include Best Horror, Best Voice Over, and of course, someone will go home Best of Show. The entry requirements, aside form the two-minutes-or-less length, can be found, along with all other Golden Trailer information, at [ the official Golden Trailer Awards website. ]
