Reel Asian 2017 Contest: Win Tickets!

We’ve got three pairs of tickets to give away for two films at this year’s Toronto Reel Asian International Film Festival (Reel Asian). As a Community Partner for both Gook by Justin Chon and the closing film, Stand Up Man, by Aram Collier, we’re happy to be able to give you the chance to see the films. Because you’re not going to want to miss either of them.

How can you win tickets?

It’s easy! You can enter just once or go all out and enter via all three channels! Come on, you know you want to! But only one entry per channel per person will be counted (so max three entries per person). Here’s how:

1. Leave a comment below letting me know which film – Gook or Stand Up Man – you want to win tickets to see at Reel Asian.

2. “Like” ATK Magazine on Facebook AND leave a comment telling us which film you want to win tickets to see – Gook or Stand Up Man.

3. Follow @ATKmagazine on Twitter AND tweet one of the following:

“I want to see Gook at @ReelAsian. Enter to win 2 tix at via @ATKmagazine #ReelAsian21”

“I want to see Stand Up Man at @ReelAsian. Enter to win 2 tix at via @ATKmagazine #ReelAsian21”

We have three pairs of tickets to give away for each film so don’t be afraid to enter!

Now it’s time for the boring but necessary rules.

  • Contest is open from now (Tuesday, October 24) to Sunday, November 5, 2017 at noon.
  • Max 3 entries per person (yep, that’s right – you can enter once via each of the 3 channels but just once per channel).
  • Winner must reply to our email, tweet or Facebook message within 48 hours to claim prize and answer the following skill-testing question: 4×5-2+12=?
  • Winner must be able to attend the screening (because why else would you enter, lol).

We will randomly draw six winners (three per film) on Sunday, November 5th and contact them via the channel they entered. Good luck!

So don’t wait, enter now. Ready, set… go

    Just found your site from going through Reel Asian’s twitter account, great stuff, and I see your involvement with the TO Korean Film Festival as well, very nice.

    I already got tickets to Gook this morning lol, which is what led me to all this, but I’d love to try to win tickets for Stand Up Man. Keep up the great work!
