Contest: Win tickets to an evening with John Singleton

As part of Black History Month and TD's Then & Now celebrations, the CFC is hosting an evening with filmmaker John Singleton, whose best-known projects include Shaft, and Boys N the Hood (which he directed at just 23). He was also the first black filmmaker to be nominated for an Oscar. TIFF will honour his impressive body of work with an evening of film clips, conversation, and audience Q & A. It'll be a great opportunity to pick the brain of a filmmaker who has consistently brought bold and compelling characters to the screen.

Sound good? Read on for how to get your hands on a pair of tickets.


10 lucky readers will receive a pair of tickets each to An Evening with John Singleton on February 12, 2013 at 8:30 p.m. at TIFF Bell Lightbox (350 King St. West).


To win, just answer the following question: What film earned Singleton his first Academy Award-nomination?

The first 10 correct commenters win the tickets. Please make sure to include a valid email address in the comment form "Email Address" field so that we can contact you if you're a winner.


You must be a Toronto-area resident to win. Only one comment and answer per person. If you include multiple answers or post multiple comments you will be disqualified, and the winner must pick up their own tickets.


This contest is now closed. Winners will be contacted shortly.
