It’s been a little while, Dorks, but it’s time for another awesome contest for our friends in TORONTO, CALGARY, and VANCOUVER! Enter for a chance to win a pair of passes to an advance screening of BELLE, courtesy of Dork Shelf and Fox Searchlight!

Vancouver and Calgary screenings: Wednesday, May 14th, 7:00pm

BELLE is inspired by the true story of Dido Elizabeth Belle (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), the illegitimate mixed race daughter of a Royal Navy Admiral.  Raised by her aristocratic great-uncle Lord Mansfield (Tom Wilkinson) and his wife (Emily Watson), Belle’s lineage affords her certain privileges, yet the color of her skin prevents her from fully participating in the traditions of her social standing.  Left to wonder if she will ever find love, Belle falls for an idealistic young vicar’s son bent on change who, with her help, shapes Lord Mansfield’s role as Lord Chief Justice to end slavery in England.

Belle opens in Toronto on Friday, May 9th and expands to other cities on Friday, May 16th, but here’s how you can catch it first! Email [email protected] with BELLE and YOUR CITY in the subject line. Please only one entry per household. Multiple entries will be deleted. For additional chances to win, simply like the contest announcement on our Facebook page and/or re-Tweet the announcement from our Twitter! Deadline for entries in Toronto is 11:59pm on Sunday, May 4th. Deadline for entries in Vancouver and Calgary is 11:59pm on Sunday, May 11th.
