WHAT SORT OF FILMS MAKE GOOD TRASH?
Trasharama generally screens gore-soaked slashers, insane frothing psychopathic serial killer movies, politically incorrect comedies, dodgy sci-fi’s, poo films, bad taste toons, b-grade schlock, mockumentaries, back yard tragedies, basically anything low-brow that doesn’t take itself too seriously. We encourage you to invent new genres as well as explore old ones. Zombies, Vampires, Gender Bender midgets, whatever gets your goat….. as long as it MAKES ‘EM LAUGH ( OR SCREEAM ) !!
WILL MY FILM BE SCREENED?
All film entries which are sent to us with the correct entry form are considered for screening. The Trasharama program tries to screen as many films as possible but obviously due to the truck loads received each year, some entries unfortunately miss out. However, every person who enters a film receives one free ticket to their nearest Trasharama show…. so really everyone is a winner !! REMEMBER: Keep your movie SHORT and ENTERTAINING!
WHERE WILL MY FILM BE SCREENED?
There will be the screening in Melbourne as part of the prestigious ten day Horrorothon, MONSTERFEST and/or the OFFICIAL Trasharama ‘on the road Australian tour. To be announced but there will be approximately ten different destinations both capitals and regionals. Please email us if you want Trasharama to come to your town. We’ll see what we can do. Trasharama attempts to screen as many films as possible at as many different destinations as possible
HOW MUCH TO SUBMIT A FILM?
There will be a 25 dollar charge to submit your film in consideration of BOTH the MONSTERFEST screening and then OFFICIAL TRASHARAMA AUSTRALIAN TOUR. It is only 15 dollars for consideration to the TOUR. Email us if this is still confusing.
CAN I ENTER MORE THAN ONE FILM?
Filmmakers can enter as many films as they like providing each film has the correct entry form. Only one film per film maker will be screened.
WHAT IF I MISS THE DEADLINE?
Any film postmarked after Sunday 31st August, 2014 will not be considered for the MONSTERFEST program to be held in Melbourne sometime TBA November 20th and 30th 2014th. Film entries postmarked after Saturday 14th September 2014 will not be considered for the 2014 competition, but will be eligible for the following years competition.
HOW LONG CAN MY FILM BE?
We will accept any film under 15 minutes (including titles and credits), however we prefer films between 0 – 7 minutes. No one wants to sit through a brain numbing 20 minute docu-drama when they can see 3 or 4 better films. KEEP IT SHORT!!
CAN I HAVE A SUSAN BOYLE SOUNDTRACK?
Trasharama will not accept films with copyright breaches. You’re much better off to get your geeky mate from down the street to bang out a few numbers on his keyboard or trumpet. There are several websites with ‘copyright free’ music and sound effects so get on the net and start googling!!
WHAT RATING DOES MY FILM HAVE TO BE?
In 2014 we will try to have MA rated shows as well as R rated ones. If you are unsure of rating guidelines click here.– http://www.ebroadcast.com.au/movies/censorship_ratings.html
