If you could design the hotel of your dreams, how would it look? Would it be bloody like the Bates Motel in Psycho or perhaps it would be a zero gravity hotel like the one from Inception? Leica has partnered with Design Hotels and MUBI to let you compose the hotel of your dreams – or at least that of your favorite hotel movie scene. The six-month long program, which runs until January 24th, combines two of our favorite pastimes: traveling and movie watching.
In September, Design Hotels announced the top five voters’ choice for the best movies with scenes set in a hotel: Lost in Translation, The Shining, The Hangover, Inception and Psycho. Now fans have the opportunity to recreate their favorite scene, document it with a photo and submit the photo to the “Don’t Forget the Popcorn” contest. Shortlisted entries chosen by a surprise celebrity jury will be exhibited at a Design Hotels member hotel in Berlin during the Berlinale Film Festival in February! The top winners will receive some amazing grand prizes including hotel stays, a Sony Playstation 3 and a Leica D-Lux 5!
Are you ready to get in on the movie making magic? You can start by checking out some of the amazing entries submitted so far http://dontforgetthepopcorn.tumblr.com/. Then review the contest rules and submit your entry http://www.designhotels.com/popcorn/contest. Don’t forget the popcorn! It’s the best part.
