Anthony suggested I share this here as a warning.

I received a tweet from Tom Sizemore's twitter account the other day. It may or may not be him but it's a 'verified account'. This was in response to me sharing on twitter that I'd entered a couple of short scripts into a film festival. He wanted me to enter it in his festival called Filmchilla.

'Tom' forgot that he did this to me a few months ago about one of my short films. I was flattered and entered, at a price of course. Recently they got in touch and suggested that they are only interested in accepting scripts & movies from folks who can attend the festival...which is in the middle of the desert in California in October. Plus, they will look favorably on those who prove they can encourage their followers to buy advance tickets, camping spots, drive in parking spots, and VIP cabins.

As I can't attend and doubt I can con any of you into purchasing a VIP cabin, I somehow doubt my film will be accepted. But of course, no entry fees will be refunded.

On twitter recently I see this type of account chasing more often, although not usually with a famous person! They target writers tweeting how well they've done in various competitions. Then they offer discounts for their competition, simply to get as many entries as possible.

Yes, I fell for this one - hook line and sinker. I did check that this festival was real and that Tom was associated with it when I originally entered, but it's obvious now it was just a stunt.

Beware folks!

I had a win at a festival where they wanted to me to attend - after buying one of their VIP things. I quickly dismissed it for the bullshit it was and ignored it. I don't know who Tom Sizemore is. Googled... nope, still, no bells ringing. I see some films he's been in but I've never watched them. Looks like a scammer to me.

He was supposed to be in one of my films. The director told me he's very difficult to work with and has to always have a handler with him due to previous behaviors on sets.

Well he's been rumored to have addiction and money problems for years.
