The announcement of March’s Carl Dreyer retrospective at BFI Southbank is some of the best news I’ve had in ages. In fact I was so thrilled, I previewed the silent films in the season here. More importantly, I hopped on to the Carl Dreyer website and made a film about it. It’s easy to make your own Dreyer movie – just type in your name, write three intertitles for the King of Illyria and his messenger and voila.
The reason I’m telling you this is that the BFI has kindly offered readers of this blog the chance to win one of three pairs of tickets to a screening of your choice in the Dreyer season. I’m going to give the tickets to the three people who make the best Dreyer movie – so follow this link, make a film and email the results to firstname.lastname@example.org. The three best entries will win a pair of tickets and I will post them on the blog too. Enjoy, channel your inner Scandinavian and good luck!
The competition closes on 28 February 2012. The judges’ decision is, of course, final.
