According to a report in film industry trade paper the Hollywood Reporter, a machinima competition for Activision and Lionhead Studios' PC game The Movies is set to be launched at the famous Sundance Film Festival this Friday. The competition, which will be available to enter online, is sponsored by U.S. car manufacturer Chrysler, and tasks entrants to create their own short film using the game, although all entries must include at least one Chrysler vehicle as a prop. The winning film will be announced at E3 in L.A. this May and the overall winner will be awarded a Chrysler Crossfire automobile. No official announcement of the competition appears to have been made yet on the official Lionhead Studios website, and the closing date for the competition is as such unconfirmed, but details are expected to be made available over the next few days. In recent weeks, The Movies has already made headlines with a virtual film produced in the game that comments on the recent race riots in France. Many other user created movies have also been uploaded to The Movies Online website, including the winner of a recent Christmas competition.
