  9. Hey everyone,

    We noticed a common question about the entry. Must the email be in English? No. However, given the number of submissions, we will likely be using a translation program. So, if you can write in English, it might convey your thoughts better than the translated version.

    However, we will likely be looking at the "spirit" of the letter than great writing skills.

    All our best,
    The Insider Team

    ReplyDelete
  12. This film is observed very amazing in addition works one of the wanted people more in the nobler world and Hilary Duff there as it wanted that they brought this film to Colombia

    ReplyDelete
  13. How many entries do you have so far?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Hi everyone,

    We have 100 entries for this contest to date. To answer some of the questions we've been reading ...

    @Anon "expressed consent" means your parents know that you are entering the contest and at least one of them will be willing to travel with you.

    @Columbia The international release of the film will be dependent on many factors. Currently, Colombia are still available for sale. What that means if the U.S. is a success, the producers can consider it as one of the countries they may be directly involved with. So we will know more as we roll into the release after May 29.

    @Anon We have 100 entries for this contest from all over the world, and there are new entries being submitted all the time!

    We hope this answers all your questions to date. Please help us keep the buzz up about this film ...

    "’What Goes Up’ is a 2009 sleeper, a complete original, and definitely not your typical teen comedy. It’s a darkly funny, wonderfully twisted story that marches to its own surprising beat. The entire cast is superb. Steve Coogan is perfect. Hilary Duff’s seductive presence proves she’s an actress to watch. Olivia Thirlby is a real find.” — Pete Hammond,

    And yes, this contest is limited to 100 words. We do have other contests that are more open ended.

    Good luck!

    I missed your question earlier. The winner of the contest receives two tickets, one for them and one for their guest (who will be a parent or guardian in the event someone under 18 wins).
