Hello once again to our friends in Toronto and Montreal! For our latest contest we want to send some lucky winners to see an advance screening of one of the best films of the year. Enter for a chance to win a pair of passes to see an advance screening of SELMA on Wednesday, January 7th (7pm in Toronto, 7:30 in Montreal), courtesy of Dork Shelf and Paramount Pictures!
SELMA is the story of a movement. The film chronicles the tumultuous three-month period in 1965, when Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. led a dangerous campaign to secure equal voting rights in the face of violent opposition. The epic march from Selma to Montgomery culminated in President Johnson (Tom Wilkinson) signing the Voting Rights Act of 1965, one of the most significant victories for the civil rights movement. Director Ava DuVernay’s SELMA tells the real story of how the revered leader and visionary Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (David Oyelowo) and his brothers and sisters in the movement prompted change that forever altered history.
Selma opens across Canada on Friday, January 9th, but here’s how you can see it first! Simply email firstname.lastname@example.org with SELMA and YOUR CITY in the subject line. Please only one email entry per household. Multiple email 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 is 11:59pm on Sunday, January 4th.
