Howard Stern Film Festival Call For Entries

Here's a good opportunity for some exposure for all the 9/11 film makers out there. The movie has to be 5 minutes long or less, which should be no problem for most of you...

Additionally, it must be related to the Howard Stern show. Luckily, Howard's 9/11 radio broadcast is available here:

A few ideas I've been thinking about; Maybe intermix the news that the towers were collapsing from Stern's broadcast with the firefighter's audio stating they were seeing pre-detonation charges prior to the collapses or lack of fire. Maybe mix the initial reports of bombs going off that day with the official story of fires causing the collapses that was rolled out on a red carpet almost immediately after the events...

The deadline for entries is April 11, and official rules can be found here. Make sure you follow the rules to ensure you don't get eliminated due to a technicality.
