The Film Society of Lincoln Center announced Thursday a contest to find the ultimate film fan--and drum up some attention for their new state-of-the-art Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center, which is set to open officially to the public on June 17, 2011. Open to film audiences worldwide, the Film Society contest will award the winner with a seat at the center, named after them, a friend or loved one.

Here's what contestants are being asked to do:

The winner will be selected by the staff members of the Film Society, who will judge entries based upon creativity, uniqueness and a demonstrated passion for film.
