FOR IMMEDIATE, GALAXY-WIDE RELEASE
The Burnettwork, based on Earth, has officially opened its “official poster selection” contest for the First Annual Intergalactic Imagination Connoisseurs’ Film Festival (IICFF). Sixty designs have been submitted from around the planet – although no designs were received from off-word by the entry deadline.
“I attribute the lack of inter-planetary entries on the fact that we just announced the film festival last week and our signal hasn’t probably reached much past the inner planets of the solar system,” explained Robert Meyer Burnett, writer-producer-director and host of ROBSERVATIONS, the flagship talkshow of The Burnettwork. “Plus, I suspect there may be a language issue.”
Nevertheless, all Earth-based entries are now under consideration and available for review on The Burnettwork website. Imagination Connoisseurs from around the world are invited to vote on their favorite entry – although only one vote is allowed per day.
“We’re allowing people to vote once per day for multiple days,” explained Mr. Burnett, “because there are so many great entries. But in order to make sure we don’t overwhelm the guy keeping track of the voting on multiple Post-It notes, we’ve restricted folks to only being able to cast one vote a day.”
“Hey, we’re the Post-Geek Singularity, not Chicago.”
The poster selected will be reproduced as a high quality one sheet measuring 27″ x 41″ and made available for sale through The Burnettwork website in December.
About the Post-Geek Singularity, Imagination Connoisseurs and The Burnettwork
Mr. Burnett and the fans refer to themselves as “Imagination Connoisseurs” and virtually assemble on a near-daily basis to celebrate all forms of pop and genre culture: everything from comic books and toys to movies and theme parks – covering genres from sci-fi and horror to historical and western fiction.
About the IICFF
The First Annual Intergalactic Imagination Connoisseurs’ Film Festival is the direct result of Burnettwork fans sending Mr. Burnett videos of their stories (both real and imagined). Impressed with the quality and initiative exhibited in the submissions, Mr. Burnett decided to create a festival that would celebrate the work of the fans who make up the “friendliest and most inclusive fan community on the Internet”, the Post-Geek Singularity.
Entries for the IICFF will be accepted until 12:01 am on December 1, 2020. Entry fees for off-planet submissions will be waived as a sign of good faith (or possibly surrender) to our non-human friends (or possibly overlords). All semi-finalist selections will be screened on a special episode of ROBSERVATIONS on Christmas Day (December 25) and winners will be announced on New Year’s Day (January 1, 2021).
