Some strange requests flow across my desk. Take this recent epistle from Joe Minjares the owner of the Parkway Theater in Minneapolis:
I'm trying to think of a name for our 3D film festival planned for sometime in March or April. I want to make it an annual event and give it a national profile. We are going to be showing 6 classic 3D films over two weeks. Some that haven't been seen for many years and a few that have never been seen here. So I'm asking you guys to come up with a name for this thing.
Whoever gives me a name I can use will win two passes to the two week event and a One Hundred Dollar Pepitos Gift Card. Also, we will use their face on the poster. You'd have to sign a release of course. GIMME NAMES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My email is: firstname.lastname@example.org
So, if you have ever wanted to name a festival, (and get your face on a movie poster,) now is your chance.
