On September 26 IndieFlix will bring Film Festival in a Box to America’s biggest living room: Times Square. Film Festival in a Box ($14.99) is the new interactive movie game where friends watch, judge and rate real films, filmmakers and actors. The launch takes place on the mammoth JumboTron screen where players and passers-by will watch four light-hearted and romantic short films, vote on their favorite and be entered to win prizes including a 3-day 2-night stay in the private villa Casa Soleado in Cabo San Lucas and copies of the Film Festival in a Box game.
Film Festival in a Box creator and IndieFlix CEO Scilla Andreen says, “On September 26 we're bringing the game, and a whole lot of love, to the pedestrian mall at 47th Street with the intent to have fun, spark conversation, and awaken a new generation of audiences to the joy of independent film.” Flash mobs, schwag and more will mark the game's launch at the “Love in Times Square” event.

The new game featuring the works of indie film talents brings the fun of a film fest into players’ homes and parties: "meet 'n greets", Best Picture awards and all. Players of the Film Festival in a Box game watch four short flicks on DVD, grouped by genre (such as Love, Comedy, Pottymouth, or Zombie) then discuss and debate. Players make their decisions then go online to IndieFlix.com where they join the buzz of the virtual film festival by voting for Best Picture, Best Performance and Best Original Story. The actual filmmakers and crews can meet the Film Festival in a Box players right there online, making for a vibrant game experience with all the behind-the-scenes connectivity that's best about a truly great film festival. The Film Festival in a Box game ($14.99) is available online at Drugstore.com and at independent retailers like Annie's Blue Ribbon General Store in Brooklyn, Fred Segal (Zero Minus Plus) in Santa Monica, and NuBe Green in Seattle.
