The Secret Cinema

Parameter
Season 1

As you hopefully know by now, we're running a fun lil' short-film competition, sponsored by Grolsch. Each film must follow a particular set of rules, which is why the contest is called Parameter. (You can get all the details here.) There's still plenty of time to submit your work of genius, so get on it—the top prize is $10k! (The final deadline, by the way, is October 29, 2012—it was mistakenly listed earlier as October 2.)

Each week we're featuring a notable entry; this week's is "The Secret Cinema," submitted by Jason Coffman, which touches on a subject near and dear to the hearts of A.V. Club readers--the weird magic of cinema. Or at least maybe that's what it's about? The next deadline cutoff is September 20, so let's go people!
