Kitsilano’s – and probably Vancouver’s – best video store is holding their 10th Annual Alternative Oscars® Contest. The rules are simple: fill out the ballot (it only contains 10 categories, ranging from best actor, actress, director, etc. to best non-human actor and worst film), leave your contact details, and you could win one of a whole slew of great prizes.
We used to rent from Videomatica (1855 West 4th @ Cypress) quite a bit when we lived a little closer and they have a truly amazing selection of movies, documentaries, tv shows, and more. What I didn’t realize until earlier this week is that Videomatica also does DVD rentals by mail, making their amazing library available to anyone in Canada.
The first prize of the Alternative Oscars Contest is a 3 month subscription to their rentals by mail, and the second and third prize are a 1 month subscription to rentals by mail. Other prizes include: an entertainment lovers package (which contains a bunch of movie passes and cinema memberships), a $100 Bistrot Bistro gift certificate + 2 Arts Club tickets, Trattoria Italian Kitchen, Phat, Pinky’s, and Noodle Box gift certificates, all in combination with movie tickets, and a series of individual movie tickets.
Ballots are open until February 22nd and the winners will be announced the next day.
