"Cine-Excess III is delighted to confirm that Italy’s iconic horror legend Dario Argento (Director of Deep Red, Suspiria, Tenebrae, Opera and Sleepless) and his long-time composer Claudio Simonetti (of rock-supergroup ‘Goblin’ fame) have just been confirmed as this year’s Guests of Honour."
The Festival, directed by Xavi Bru, invites everyone to make a fake trailer of a non-existing film and post it on Teaserland.com from September 23rd.
The prize, €30.000 to make a short film, will be announced in January 2009 by a jury composed by: Jaume Balagueró (film director), Mirito Torreiro (film critic), Gregorio Belinchón (film journalist) , Esther García (producer), Angel Sala (director of the Sitges International Film Festival of Catalonia) and Manel Vicaría (Vas a ver).
The project will be officially presented on October 4th, within the framework of the Sitges Film Festival, which Teaserland.com is united with. Besides showing the competing trailers, also the exclusive works of the guest directors will be premiered in the presentation.
They are still working on the English language version ot the site, but I assume that will be ready soon.
