A new feature of the BFF is the Backseat Film Festival Drinking Game, an ongoing game throughout the festival. At the beginning of each screening, three criteria are selected from a hat out of over 20 possibilities. Each time one of those selected comes up in a particular screening block, viewers are to take a drink. Some of the criteria include; Fake Moustache, Nipples (One drink per nipple), Someone playing a guitar, Onscreen drinking or drug-use, Wigs, Ninja attack, Zombie devouring a person, Someone uses a switchblade, Decapitation and Vomiting amongst others.

Also, we’ll be announcing the Backseat Film Festival 2006 Award Winners at the final after party of the festival (March 5th at Tritone). Awards include Best Feature Film, Best Short, Local Filmmaker Award, Filmmaker Appreciation, as well as Best Breasts, Best Fight Scene, Best Bloodshed and more! Along with a certificate, winners will receive prizes from our sponsors and passes to next year’s festival!

Of course, the Backseat Film Festival would not be what it is without our sponsors. Pabst Blue Ribbon and Sailor Jerry Rum keep us stocked with free booze for festival-goers, and the Gray Kangaroo Personal Liquor Filter takes the impurities out of our cheap vodka (when we run out of beer and rum!). Our newest sponsor,, is helping us to keep in direct contact with festival fans through their brand new Myspace Film section. All our sponsors will be contributing prizes to the winning filmmakers.

There are quite a few more surprises in store for those who attend the fourth annual Backseat Film Festival!
