Win all-festival passes to the Fresno Film Festival, which opens Friday

A scene from the movie “Sir.”

You can win a festival pass to the Fresno Film Festival, a weekend event featuring seven exclusive programs of feature-length and local award-winning short films, including special filmmaker appearances and Q&A discussions. The festival opens at the Tower Theatre 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 8, with the opening-night film “Sir,” described as: “Two contrasting worlds coexist in a single apartment in Mumbai, amidst a forbidden attraction that questions social class.” The Fresno Filmworks-sponsored event continues through Sunday with the closing-night film, “Raise Hell: The Life & Times of Molly Ivins,” about the famed newspaper columnist. It plays at 7:30 p.m.

The contest is open only to members, donors and individual sponsors of The Munro Review. Tax-deductible memberships start at $5 a month, and you can make a one-time donation of as little as $3. (Paid memberships help keep the site running, and paid members get special members-only benefits. Please consider a paid membership in support of independent, local arts journalism.) A free membership option is available. For details on how to join, go to the Membership and Sponsorship page. No purchase, donation or membership is necessary to enter the ticket giveaway.

To enter this giveaway, leave a reply on this post (see below) answering this question: Were you a fan of Molly Ivins when her column ran in the Fresno Bee? (Or you can just say why you’d like to attend.) Deadline to enter is 1 p.m. Friday, Nov. 8. The winner will be picked at random and notified by email.

The Munro Review has no paywall but is financially supported by readers who believe in its non-profit mission of bringing professional arts journalism to the central San Joaquin Valley. You can help by signing up for a monthly recurring paid membership or make a one-time donation of as little as $3. All memberships and donations are tax-deductible.

    No. Don’t know who Molly was or is. I would like the film pass though.
