From the GATW Archives: Giveaway: Win CEREMONY swag, custom signed by writer/director Max Winkler (bonus: contest video by Winkler)

One of the best films to come out of the Toronto International Film Festival last year was Max Winkler’s feature debut, CEREMONY. You should be familiar with Winkler’s work if you’ve ever seen any episode of Clark and Michael with Clark Duke and Michael Cera.

I finally met Max a month or so ago at the 2011 SXSW Film Festival and we bounced around ideas for doing something fun for the celebration of CEREMONY’s theatrical release this Friday. I had the idea for Max to record a video for you (our wonderful readers) talking about a CEREMONY contest and what you could win - a few emails later, the below video showed up in my inbox from Max. So, without further ado, watch the video and follow the instructions! Good luck, movie lovers!

CEREMONY hits theaters this Friday! Also, if CEREMONY is not playing in your area, you can watch via VOD or rent on iTunes. Let’s show the world we have great taste - support indie filmaking!
