Looper - Featured


Well, TIFF is upon us again here in the city of Toronto, but we know we have fans outside of our home base that would love to get in on all of the TIFF excitement, but today we have not one BUT TWO special contests involving advance screenings of films debuting on the opening night of the festival  from our friends at Alliance Films that are EXCLUSIVE to residents of OTTAWA, HALIFAX, and WINNIPEG.

First up, and this one’s a big one, we want to send ten lucky winners and a guest of their choosing to the TIFF opening night film LOOPER when it debuts in their city on Wednesday, September 26th at 7:00pm.

In the futuristic action thriller Looper, time travel will be invented – but it will be illegal and only available on the black market. When the mob wants to get rid of someone, they will send their target 30 years into the past, where a “looper” – a hired gun, like Joe (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) – is waiting to mop up. Joe is getting rich and life is good… until the day the mob decides to “close the loop,” sending back Joe’s future self (Bruce Willis) for assassination. The film is written and directed by Rian Johnson (Brick, The Brother’s Bloom) and also stars Emily Blunt, Paul Dano, and Jeff Daniels.

Looper opens in theatres across Canada on Friday, September 28th, but we want to send you guys there first! To enter, simply email contest@dorkshelf.com with LOOPER and YOUR CITY in the subject line. Please only one entry per household. For additional chances to enter, like the contest announcement on our Facebook page, or re-tweet the announcement from our Twitter! Deadline for entries is 11:59pm on Sunday, September 23rd.


FIVE lucky winners chosen at random from each city will receive a BONUS PRIZE.

Alliance Films has sweetened the deal for us this time and given us some truly awesome pocket watches like the one’s used by the actual “loopers” in the film! These beauties are the real deal and five of the ten winners from each city will get their hands on one! (Watches will be mailed to winners who will then be asked for mailing information. Winners will not claim bonus prize at screening.)

Now with all that out of the way, stay tuned early this afternoon for a second great contest from Dork Shelf and Alliance Films that can send you guys in Winnipeg, Halifax, and Ottawa to an advance screening of yet another film debuting at the Toronto International Film festival this week!

And don’t forget to keep coming back to Dork Shelf for all your festival news, reviews, and star studded interviews over the week!
