Oscar Buzz takes hold


To coincide with Oscar season, the art house circuit of South African cinema chain Ster-Kinekor will screen a host of Oscar-nominated films, including Hugo, The Descendants, The Artist, The Iron Lady, My Week With Marilyn, and The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.

Ster-Kinekor Cinema Nouveau also recently launched its exciting Oscar Buzz Watch Review and Win competition. Audiences can watch any Oscar nominated title at Ster-Kinekor Cinema Nouveau, share their reviews via twitter (@NouveauBuzz) or SMS (33700) and stand the chance to be one of the weekly winners of an official movie poster with their review immortalised or movie tickets. The grand prize is a trip for two to Cannes, France, in May 2012.

There is also a dedicated Oscar Buzz website (www.nouveaubuzz.co.za) which is loaded with everything from trailers and tweets to fun polls and predictions.
