The Mockingjay lives…
Greetings, and welcome to one of our biggest contests of the year: the annual time when we distribute passes to lucky winners to see an advance screening of latest film in The Hunger Games series: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, in theatres on November 21st with tickets now on sale.
Dork Shelf and eOne Films have once again teamed up to give lucky winners in TORONTO, OTTAWA, HALIFAX, WINNIPEG, CALGARY, EDMONTON, VANCOUVER, and VICTORIA on Wednesday, November 19th. But just like the actual Hunger Games, it will be even harder to gain entry to this special screening. Due to intense demand and extremely limited supply, you’ll really have to earn your way in. So Dork Shelf and eOne Films want you to tell us why you’re the biggest Hunger Games fan in your city.
The worldwide phenomenon of The Hunger Games continues to set the world on fire with The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, which finds Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) in District 13 after she literally shatters the games forever. Under the leadership of President Coin (Julianne Moore) and the advice of her trusted friends, Katniss spreads her wings as she fights to save Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and a nation moved by her courage. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 is directed by Francis Lawrence from a screenplay by Peter Craig and Danny Strong, from an adaptation by Suzanne Collins and produced by Nina Jacobson’s Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. The novel on which the film is based is the third in a trilogy written by Suzanne Collins that has over 65 million copies in print in the U.S. alone.
If you want in on our biggest contest of the year, here are the ways you can enter:
1. You can simply email firstname.lastname@example.org with MOCKINGJAY and YOUR CITY in the subject line. This will get you one entry. Please only one email entry per household. Multiple email entries will be deleted. You’ll have your one chance, and you might win, but that’s the only entry you will have.
2. For the best chance to win, head to YouTube and create a video telling us what Katniss or the symbol of the Mockingjay means to you personally, and why you want to see the film before everyone else. Please keep the video to less three minutes in length. To enter this way, be sure to still email email@example.com with MOCKINGJAY – VIDEO ENCLOSED and YOUR CITY in the subject line. By producing a video and submitting it to us, you don’t just get one entry. You get ONE HUNDRED ENTRIES. (Please only one video per person. And be sure to email it to us so it ensures that we see it!)
3. If you create a video for the contest, be sure to share it on Twitter, mention @DorkShelf, @eOneFilms, and use the hashtag #MOCKINGJAYLIVES. Each friend that re-Tweets your video will also count as a bonus entry.
Winners will be selected at random (just like the draw for The Hunger Games), but the more you show how much of a fan you are, the better your chances and the more entries you receive! Deadline for entries and videos is 11:59pm on Thursday, November 13th. Winners must be Canadian residents and have their own means of transportation to get to and from the screenings. Winners will be notified via email on Sunday, November 16th.
May the odds be ever in your favour, and be sure to stay tuned to Dork Shelf for all the latest movie news, reviews, interviews, features, and more great contests.
