We here at Wasteland World Central would like to wish everyone the best this Holiday Season.
Just in time to get your Holiday shopping finished, we’ve added a ton of great new merchandise to the web site over the past few weeks. With so many great DVD and Blu-ray’s, assorted Movie Collectibles, original Movie Posters and authentic Autographs that you can get from us cheaper than you can buy them in person, CW is sure to offer you something for every B movie fan on your Holiday Shopping List. Take a look around the merchandise section of the web site next time you get a chance and see for yourself.
As you well know, next April 7th, 8th and 9th, 2017, we will be celebrating one of the most influential horror films ever made when we present a 50th Anniversary of Night of the Living Dead Cast and Crew Reunion, and you still have time to take advantage of our “early bird” ticket specials.
You’ve got until December 9th to snag Single Day Passes for $15 each or a 3-Day Pass for only $35, which not only gets you into the show at 4:00pm on Friday, but gets you more than 60 hours of Movies, Panels, and Programming that we will be offering over the course of a three day Wasteland Weekend.
Now that we’ve been off the road for a couple of weeks and caught up on all of the stuff that tends to pile up when you don’t spend much time taking care of it for two months, I’m hoping to get the Guest List for next April’s show finished and posted before Xmas. Wish me luck.
There’s not a whole helluva lot to say this month since all we did was play catch up the past few weeks, so let’s get to the ever growing list of update reminders and call this month quits.
FRIDAY NIGHT TRIVIA: Don’t forget about our new FRIDAY NIGHT WASTELAND TRIVIA in the hotel bar starting at 10:30pm after the Vendor and Guest Room shuts down on Friday night next show. The top three teams will split $100 in cash prizes. Well, not just cash prizes for the top three teams, but bragging rights for those top teams as well. Judging by the way they like to correct anything I get wrong on the web site, CW is full of movie fans that know their stuff when it comes to trivia, so bragging rights to the top teams is most certainly something to be proud of.
Here are the RULES AND REGULATIONS for Friday Night Wasteland Trivia -
- Teams of up to six (6) players are allowed to compete, so form your team, pick a name to call yourselves, and watch a bunch of stuff between now and next April’s show.
- Do Not shout out any answers to the questions or risk being disqualified.
- Do Not use anything that can be used to cheat. No cellphones, reference material, iPad’s etc will be allowed. If we catch you looking at your phone before you turn in your answer, you just cost your team that round and zero points will be awarded.
- Only one answer per team allowed and you can not change your answer once you’ve turned it into the hosts / judges.
Don’t answer a question and no points will be awarded, so do your best and give all the questions your best shot.
- Points for each question in each round will vary so some questions will be worth more than others. The game will offer everyone a chance to earn up to 100 points total, plus a bonus round. In the event of a tie at the end of the game, a tie breaker question will be asked.
- The decisions of the hosts / judges are final.
GRAB SOME C.W. SHOW SWAG: The cool 16 ounce Cinema Wasteland Movie and Memorabilia Expo glass and the “Wasteland is Family” t-shirt we had available at the last show are now available to order on line. You’ll find CW merchandise listed with passes and stuff on the web site, or use this handy link to order your CW Show swag today by clicking here.
TAKE ADVANTAGE OF “EARLY BIRD” PASSES TO THE NEXT SHOW: For ten weeks after every CW Show you can get a 3-Day Pass into the next show for only $35 and save! That means that you still have until 12/9/16 to pick up your pass for next April’s show and get it for a rock bottom price. You can also grab Single Day Passes between now and 12/9 for only $15 each, and we have a lot of people who come in for two days, so this is the cheapest way to snag yourself a 2-Day Pass when you think of it.
You can grab your passes on line by clicking here.
HOTEL: The one thing you can always count on is that the hotel will be sold out by show time. We take over the entire hotel, and rooms seem to fill up faster every show since the motel next door raised its rates and is no longer a significant savings over the Show Hotel. Help support the show and avoid the headache of having to stay down the road by making your room reservations today. Reserve your room through our web site, or by calling The Holiday Inn reservation line at 1-877-408-4913. Remember you MUST ask for “The Cinema Wasteland Room Rate”, or they really should tell you that they are ”sold out” and have no rooms. And PLEASE only reserve as many rooms as you plan on using.
HOW DO I SUBMIT MY MOVIE OR SHORT FILM FOR THE CW INDY FILM FEST?:
First Rule: Your movie or short film needs to be 100% finished before we’ll consider screening it.
Second Rule: The film you submit can't be older than a year or so old or already have DVD or cable TV distribution since we're basically trying to help independent filmmakers get the word out about their films to our attending fans.
Third Rule: When your movie or short film is completely finished, just send us off a screener to watch and consider. (We won’t watch a “link” on the computer since we can’t screen a “link” on the computer at the show itself.) Make sure you include contact information so we can get back to you if we do decide to screen your short or feature, and patiently wait to see if we get back to you. It’s that easy.
Since we’ve always supported the independent filmmaker, we don’t do things like your average every day film festival does things. Namely, we don’t charge to screen your movie or short film and just take your money and run whatever somebody sends us. We simply watch everything that is sent to us and fit as many indy films into the weekend schedule that we can squeeze in around all the other guest related movies and events that we normally cram into a Wasteland Weekend. We do keep film submissions for up to one year’s time so if we don’t screen your film or short one show, it very well could make the next show. We do watch and tend to enjoy everything we receive but please don’t take it personally if we don’t screen your submission. Chances are it just didn’t make it into the weekend schedule because we received way too many submissions in a short amount of time and/or had more films that fit a certain theme that matches the weekend we’re currently running.
Because we don’t charge to screen your film or short, a screening does not come with free passes into the show. A pass into the CW Show however is much cheaper than any film festival submission prices.
The submission cut off date for any given CW Show is two months before the event so we have time to watch and review everything we receive. We review all submissions by their post mark date, so anything received after the cut off date will only be included if we have screening time to fill.
OK, that’s it for me this time around. Let’s see if I can’t have some new Guests and a few Show Updates to announce next month…
