The rules: using the phrase "Time Travel Is Fantastic" as a springboard, devise, create and produce a 15- to 45-second video that ends with the line "That's fantastic!" Sure, it sounds a bit like a contest for marketing a new brand of "Fantastic!" tile cleaner, but what makes the Bumper Contest intriguing is what happens to the videos: Fantastic Fest will take as many of the entries "as posible" (they say) and play them before every film screening at the festival.
The top five bumpers will play at this Fantastic Fest's Award Ceremony, and the winner (to be chosen by the audience) will get two VIP passes to next year's festival.
