findingfela-slider-980x418Its contest time here again at the FIX and here is one of 3 contests for passes to films playing at the upcoming 32nd edition of Canadian Music Week. This marks the 4th year that the festival has included films about music and the  CMW programming team have delivered one of the most anticipated lineups  of a festival so far this year. With films focusing on Fela Kuti, Elliot Smith and Johnny Thunders mixed with fictional tales like the TIFF breakout “We Are the Best”, Michael Fassbender oddity “Frank” and the Jimi Hnedrix biopic “Jimi: All is by My Side” starring Outkast’s Andre Benjamin, CMW’s lineup has something to interest everybody. All films will play at the Royal Cinema.

We have one Double Pass for the screening of the Alex Gibney directed opening night film “Finding Fela” on Thursday May 8th at 6:30pm.
Finding Fela tells the story of Fela Anikulapo Kuti’s life, his music, his social and political importance. He created a new musical movement, Afrobeat, using that forum to express his revolutionary political opinions against the dictatorial Nigerian government of the1970s and 1980s. His influence helped bring a change towards democracy in Nigeria and promoted Pan Africanist politics to the world. The power and potency of Fela’s message is completely current today and is expressed in the political movements of oppressed people, embracing Fela’s music and message in their struggle for freedom.
To enter simply email us at moviejunkieto@gmail.com with your full name and tell us what musical genre Fela created. Make sure to put ‘Finding Fela in the subject line.

Good Luck! Terms and Conditions : Contest Closes at Midnight on Wednesday May 7th. Winner will be contacted by site and then have their information passed to a third party who will provide them with one pair of tickets to the screening. Contest is open to Canadian residents only, no transportation or accommodation is included in the prize. Decision of the editor is final and prizes will be awarded as such.
