It’s official! Parameter—the A.V. Club’s short-film competition presented by Grolsch—is back! This year is going to be even bigger because the competition is now open to residents of California, and a grand prize of $20,000 plus a Film Mentorship Package is up for grabs.
Parameter works like this: We will provide a theme and a set of ultra-specific rules (parameters, if you will) that each entry must follow.

THE PARAMETER AND GROLSCH OCCASION SUGGESTION CONTEST IS NOW OVER. CHECK BACK SOON TO SEE THE OFFICIAL 2013 LIST.
Our friends at Grolsch have something they call the “Grolsch occasion,” which they define as “those fleeting but excellent times when you can get away from responsibility and do something you might not normally do.” The winning "Grolsch occasion" suggestion gets $500.
We also solicited individual parameters—the funny little rules that make this competition what it is—via Twitter. If we use your suggestions, you’ll win bragging rights and be credited on the site.
