Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, Main’s Film & Audio Department has begun their annual “March Madness” competition. But instead of voting on college basketball teams, you vote on the best movie directors of all time! If you’re really into films, you should check it out. And if you’re not, but you’d like to know more, stop by Film & Audio on the second floor of the Main Library in Oakland to find out more.) Here’s how it works:
Director Battle Royale
Who is the best movie director of all time? Help decide by voting in Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh’s March Movie Madness! We’re using the NCAA basketball tournament as a model, but our four divisions are The Legends, The Heavyweights, The Ambassadors, and The Eclectics.
How to Play
Vote in every round for your favorite picks in each bracket. You can vote online or use an official paper ballot available in the Film & Audio Department at CLP – Main. There are no prizes, just the fun of arguing with your friends.
|Sweet Sixteen||March 9 – 13|
|Elite Eight||March 16 – 20|
|Final Four||March 23 – 27|
|Finals||March 30 – April 3|
Winning Director Announced: April 5
We used a variety of resources, including 501 Movie Directors and a list of “Best Director” Academy Award nominees, to compile a list of possible contenders. Then Library staff then began the painful process of voting to determine the final list of directors. Seeding is based on year of birth. And yes, we know we left out a lot of really great directors and included some that would never have made your list. It’s tradition!
Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh offers DVDs representing every director in the competition, so check them out before voting. For trivia, commentary and updates related to the contest, search Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh – Film & Audio on Facebook.
Hop to it! Vote online!
