We love a good movie making contest, as evidenced by the Observer's critically *acclaimed, *award-winning entry in the 24 Hour Video Race (shown above).

Well there's a new challenge on the table, divined through the intoxicated holy union of the Oak Cliff Film Festival and Four Corners Brewery. It's called the Four Corners Film Race and details have been left intentionally vague.

Here's what we know
1.) You get one week to make a movie.

2.) Film requirements are revealed on Sunday, October 27, at the competition's kick off, 4 p.m. at Texas Theatre.

3.) Second place is a free keg of Four Corners Beer. First place is naming rights to a new edition of Four Corners Beer. If you're a great filmmaker but a better drinker, aim slightly below your potential. You can't drink a name.

4.) Completed films get dropped off at Four Corners from 4 to 6 p.m. on Sunday, November 3.

5.) You'll see your masterwork (read: humble juvenalia) screen big at Texas Theatre on Sunday, November 10 at 4 p.m.

6.) Team entry is just $50.

First place gets naming rights to a new beer by Four Corners. Second place gets a keg of Four Corners. Third place gets two VIP badges to the Oak Cliff Film Fest.

If you've got the stuff, sign up here.

** Acclaim and awards still pending

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
