Giveaway – Tickets to Six Hot Docs Films

hot_docs_2014 ticket giveaway

Hot Docs is here!!! This means I am going to be incredibly happy for the next 10 days – well, 8 days as I will have to go home next weekend for a family thing – but still.

As I have said many times before, this is my favourite film festival of them all, for one simple reason – I love real stories. There is no bullshit or fantasy, just the truth. Documentaries are raw and real and funny and interesting. They cover every facet of life from crime to love to art to music to comedy to justice to our most basic human struggles.

With that in mind – Hot Docs has given me 6 pairs of tickets to 6 extraordinary films playing at this year’s festival. All you have to do to win is send me an email ( lisa @ turntherecordover.com ) with the title of the film(s) you want to be entered into in the subject line of the email. I will respond to the winner 12 – 24 hours before the screening to let you know where to pick up your tickets. Please make sure you will definitely be able to attend the screening time listed before entering!

Here are the 6 films I wanted you all to have the chance to see:

BEYOND CLUELESS

Exploring the modern teen movie genre from The Craft to Mean Girls and beyond. Those three classic movie mentions are more than enough reason to see this doc.

SLEEPLESS IN NEW YORK

A lovely if depressing doc dealing with the brutal truth of the pain behind a breakup, and the way our brains are wired to addict us to someone so that breakups are as physically and emotionally painful as getting sober.
