Win a Dream* Date with Nina(tm)

above: at a different glamorous, star-studded award thing

I’ve been nominated for a Spirit Award, and I’m auctioning off a DREAM* DATE allowing the lucky winner to attend the glamorous**, star-studded*** Spirit Awards with me. Bidding closes Jan-29-09 19:42:45 PST.

Date: February 21, 2009
Arrivals: 11:30am
Lunch: 12:30 pm
Ceremony: 2:00pm-4:00pm

Location: Santa Monica Beach, Los Angeles

Age, race, caste, gender, orientation, marital status no bar. Getting in usually costs at least $2,500 per person.
This is part of a fundraising drive to get my award-winning feature film, Sita Sings the Blues, out of copyright jail.

The lucky winner will get to prance down the Red Carpet with me (photographers! paparazzi! none of whom will know who the hell we are because they all want photos of movie stars), eat whatever they serve for lunch, drink the booze that inevitably flows freely and at film events (I personally don’t drink, so if you’re sober at least you’ll have me to talk to), clap politely, and listen to me yak on and on about copyright reform and freedom of speech. Optional: pick me up from my friends’ house in Glendale (because I don’t drive – I’m a New Yorker!) and enjoy VIP valet parking!

Also you’ll get the satisfaction of supporting Free Speech.

BID HERE! You have until January 29.

  1. I’m from India and dying to see Sita Sings The Blues. Being a student I can’t even dream of bidding. And that about 50 Rupees make a Dollar doesn’t help either. All the best with the fundraising.

  2. Hi Nina; it’s off the subject but I just wanted to let you know that I just saw a still from your film on Brazilian tv.

    There’s a new show on Globo tv (the Brazilian tv network, which is also aired here) that takes place in India, and they just showed a still from your film; it looked like it was in a book. My partner says that they said the name Sita Sings the Blues, though frankly my Portuguese isn’t good enough to have made that out.

    Anyway, just wanted to let you know that the word is definitely spreading!

    Best of luck with the bidding!


  3. Congratulations, Nina, you deserve to win!

    If I were not broke, I’d bid a lot to be at the side of such a good looking lady!


  4. regret that I am 12 years too late to win a dream date with Nina. But

    at least I can fantasize.
