12 DStv subscribers acting out their favourite movie scene can snag a week trip to Los Angeles and a walk-on role in M-Net Movies film, Greatest Movie Ever Made.

"I'll be back": Acting out and recording just a few seconds of a scene from any of the Terminator films, Top Gun, Toy Story, Batman, Rambo - literally any movie currently showing on any of the M-Net Movies channels on DStv could win 12 viewers the prize of flying to Los Angeles and starring in the short M-Net Movies film Greatest Movie Ever Made that will be filmed in South Africa.

If you have chest hair you can have ripped off shouting "Aaaah, Kelly Clarkson!" like in the funny chest waxing scene from The 40 Year Old Virgin, to Shrek, Jurassic Park, Star Trek or Julia Roberts conniving in My Best Friend's Wedding, 12 South African DStv subscribers can snag a week long trip to LA with a partner, as well as a walk-on role in a South African film.

Any scene from any film on any of the M-Net Movies channels on DStv, ranging from M-Net Movies Premiere (DStv 104), M-Net Movies Smile (DStv 105), M-Net Movies Action (DStv 106), M-Net Movies Showcase (DStv 107), M-Net Movies Action (DStv 110) to M-Net Movies All Stars (DStv 111) and M-Net Movies Zone (DStv 139) can be used to act out and record for the competition.

The closing date is Saturday 20 August at midnight.

Contestants older than 18 need to upload their short video to social media using the hashtag #MMGreatest on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and then fill out an entry form at to validate the entry within the first week of posting the video on social media.

A panel will pick the 24 best entries, with the public who will then vote from 23 August. The 12 contestants with the most votes will go to Los Angeles for a week and will be able to take a partner along.

In South Africa, the 12 will be included in Greatest Movie Ever Made filmed during the week of 26 September.

"You may just be acting opposite one of your favourite local stars and experience what it's really like behind-the-scenes on a movie shoot - even more reason to take part in the competition," says Lani Lombard, M-Net's head of publicity.
