Quick contest: Win tickets to Fresno Filmworks short Oscar films


Thanks to Fresno Filmworks, you’ll get the chance on Thursday and Friday to see three separate programs of this year’s Oscar-nominated short films. I’m giving away a pair of tickets that can be used for any of the three programs. Here’s the schedule:

5:30 p.m. animation
8:15 p.m. live action

3:00 p.m. animation
5:45 p.m. live action
8:30 p.m. documentary

If you aren’t a winner, tickets to single programs cost $10 general admission and $8 for students and seniors. A special $15 double-feature ticket is available for any two programs.

Here’s how this quickie contest works: I’ll give the tickets to the FIRST reader who responds to this post with a comment. These are paper tickets, so you’ll need to be able to come down to The Bee’s lobby to pick them up. Rules are on the jump.

Only readers who submit a comment on this post are eligible. Winners will be picked at random. Recipients will be notified by e-mail at the end of each giveaway period. No substitutions or transfer of winners/prizes. Prizes are not redeemable for cash. Some prizes may have due dates for redemption/use. Employees and immediate family of The Fresno Bee, and any/all of the participating giveaway sponsors, are not eligible to win. By accepting a giveaway, recipient consents to allow the use of his/her name and/or photograph for advertising or similar promotions without further compensation. Winner releases all sponsors of liability regarding use and enjoyment of the prizes. Tax liabilities and insurance, if any, are sole responsibility of the winner. No purchase necessary to win.
