DailyNews readers can win tickets to the Windsor International Film Festival, courtesy of the Office of the President. A celebration of the art of cinema, the festival will screen 143 films from 21 countries from October 29 to November 3 at three downtown venues.
As a sponsor, the University has received tickets to distribute to students and employees. What better way than through a trivia contest? To enter, just send your answers to three trivia questions drawn from the 10 films executive director Vincent Georgie has identified as this year’s must-see titles.
