CONTEST CLOSED! Tribeca Horrors 2010: Ticket Giveaway Details
The 9th Annual Tribeca Film Festival kicked off this week, and to celebrate, the kind folks running the event have offered Dread Central readers the opportunity to win a pair of tickets to two of the films having their North American Premiere during the fest on Sunday, April 25th: Tetsuo, The Bullet Man and Dream Home.
Here's an overview of the films included and the times of the screenings for which we have tickets available:
Tetsuo, The Bullet Man - North American Premiere at 9:00 PM, VEC-1 (Village East Cinema 1, 181 2nd Avenue)
Directed by Shinya Tsukamoto, written by Shinya Tsukamoto and Hisakatsu Kuroki (Japan)
More than 20 years after he used 16mm to prove himself worthy of a cult following with Tetsuo, The Iron Man, Shinya Tsukamoto is back with another frenetic, hyperbolic experience. This slick, modernized third installation of the Tetsuo series — shown here in the final director's cut for the first time — continues to challenge ideas of man and machine ... and the trouble that ensues when the two become one.
Dream Home (Wai dor lei ah yut ho) - North American Premiere at 10:00 PM, SVA-2 (School of Visual Arts Theater 2, 333 West 23rd Street)
Directed by Ho-Cheung Pang, written by Ho-Cheung Pang, Kwok Cheung Tsang, and Chi-Man Wan (Hong Kong)
Cheng Lai-sheung is a young, upwardly mobile professional finally ready to invest in her first home. But when the deal falls through, she is forced to keep her dream alive — even if it means keeping her would-be neighbors dead. Pang Ho-Cheung's disturbingly imaginative violence unfolds against a backdrop of lifestyle fetishization and the housing market crisis in this metropolitan spin on Guignol horror. In Cantonese with English subtitles.
Again, both of these films are screening on Sunday, April 25th. To win, all you have to do is send us an E-MAIL HERE that includes your FULL NAME, MAILING ADDRESS, EMAIL ADDRESS, and the TITLE OF THE MOVIE you'd like to see. If you don't need the pair and are entering to win just one ticket, please include that also. Winners will be notified within approximately 24 hours prior of the screening.
The 2010 Tribeca Film Festival runs from April 21st through May 2nd in New York City. Visit the Fest's official website for more info on these four films and all the others on the schedule.
