Nobody Wants Your Film

Nobody Wants Your Film appears to be a site dedicated to promoting an independent film that's been unable to find a distributor. The site encourages people to register at the site (and tell their friends to register) so that the creator of the film can convince "investors & money men that this thing is really happening" and "that they'd better jump on board before it's too late". The weird thing is that the film has some pretty well-known actors in it (Steve Buscemi, for instance), so you wouldn't think that it would be that hard to get it distributed. However, the film itself is about "the making of an independent feature that nobody wants, at least that's what money man Alan Smithee thinks." So this independent film that can't find a distributor is about an independent film that can't find a distributor. Which suggests that the site is a viral hoax marketing campaign that plays upon the premise of the movie. Or maybe they really can't find a distributor. I don't know. Either way, I've allowed myself to be sucked into their publicity campaign.

Obvious fake. Alan Smithee was the former name used when directors didn't want their name attached to a film.

Indeed... There's been already a poor actual movie, with Jackie Chan, Stallone, Whoopi Goldberg and others with Eric Idle as "Alan Smithee":
- An Alan Smithee Film: Burn Hollywood Burn
Apparently that's a Hollywood joke, but it's not fun at all.

You're right, they suck. I sent them a copy of my new documentary film "Eat or Go Home", starring Baby Boy Bulmash. They rejected it, saying it was too much like "Finding Nemo". Dicks.

It feels way too gimmicky. I don't believe for a second that this is a real site.

If you'd like to read the LA Times review it can be found at:

With over 200,000 visitors to the NWYF website during the past year, and with many choosing to have their user names included into the credits of the film, we have so far seen a very large turnout for this dvd release.

Once again thanks for your continued help and support.

ps: A few weeks ago Newsweek magazine did a segment announcing the NWYF dvd release and posted our three trailers on their website at:
