WINNERS ANNOUNCED: A J-Source prize giveaway


And the winners are:

Thanks to everyone who commented on J-Source about their favourite documentary films. Juan Gomez, who suggested Bukowski: Born Into This, is the winner of 2 tickets to each of the three journalism-related films screening at Toronto’s Hot Docs festival. And Roger Cullman, who recommended 9/11: The Falling Man, is the winner of a White Pine Pictures DVD prize pack.

We’ve all seen An Inconvenient Truth, been Spellbound and gone Bowling for Columbine. But what about Iron Ladies of Liberia, or The Dying Rooms, or The Times of Harvey Milk? There are more documentaries than meet the eye when scanning the shelves at Blockbuster. We’re hoping you can shine a light on some of these films that relay important messages or tell compelling stories (or both), but are largely ignored by the masses.

Tell us (using the comment form below) the title of the movie and at least one good reason why a journalist should track it down, and we’ll enter your name into a draw for a pair of tickets to see each of the three journalism-related films playing at this year’s Hot Docs documentary film festival in Toronto OR a White Pine Pictures prize pack containing DVD copies of three documentaries: Shake Hands with the Devil: The Journey of Romeo Dallaire, Triage: Dr. James Orbinski’s Humanitarian Dilemma and A Promise to the Dead: The Exile Journey of Ariel Dorfman.

Please be sure to include your name and correct e-mail address when submitting your comment so we can add you to the draw.

Two winners will be drawn and announced on April 21 in our weekly newsletter.
