CONTEST – The Films Of John Paizs @ The Royal – April 10, 2008

The 2008 edition of the Over The Top Fest doesn’t formally begin until April 30 but the film component of the programme is getting a jump on things early. Next week, on April 10 at 7PM at The Royal, they’re offering a rare double-bill screening of the works of Winnipeg director John Paizs, who will himself be in attendance.

The programme consists of Crime Wave, his 1985 film about the making of “the greatest color crime movie ever” and Top Of The Food Chain, a spoof/homage to the sci-fi invasion flicks of the 1950s. I’ve not seen either film but judging from the trailers below, they definitely look interesting.

Courtesy of the festival, I’ve got two pairs of passes to give away for the evening. To enter, send me an email at contests AT with “I want to ride a crime wave to the top of the food chain” in the subject line and your full name in the body. The contest will close at midnight, April 7 and if you don’t win but still want to go, tickets are $10 for each film, available at the door.
