Alamo Drafthouse: No Texting or Talking Contest

We've all had that experience of finally sitting in a theater during a movie you've been dying to see, only to have someone sitting near you constantly talking or texting throughout the whole movie, ruining the theatrical experience. Tim League, founder of the beloved Alamo Drafthouse, has enforced strict no talking/texting policies in his theaters and even wrote an impassioned plea to other theaters to do the same. (One London theater seemed to listen, using ninjas to get people to shut up.) Now the Drafthouse is hosting an awesome contest where you can make your own "No Talking or Texting" video and win $1000. Read on!

This is the latest in the Drafthouse's "Filmmaking Frenzy" series, and they have teamed with Jonah Hill, Michael Cera, Michael Madsen, Jason Reitman, Patton Oswalt and more to announce the contest:

The contest runs from today, October 24th, until November 21st, 2012, so grab a bunch of friends and a video camera, come up with a solid idea, and give it a shot. We love supporting the Drafthouse's strict no talking/texting policy (other theaters - step up your game!), and this is a great way to encourage creativity all while spreading a message that, frankly, more of the movie goers in the United States need to hear loud and clear. For details on how to participate and submit, visit FilmmakingFrenzy.com. You can also see one of the great no-texting PSA's ever, made from a voicemail Tim League received here. Will you enter?
