Giveaway – Tickets to The F Word Toronto Premiere With Daniel Radcliffe


Want to hang with Daniel Radcliffe in person? Want to attend the premiere of his new film The F Word? I can help you do just that. The film has its Toronto premiere on Monday July 21st at Scotiabank Theatre, and Harry Potter himself will be there to say hi.

If you want to win, all you have to do is follow me on Instagram @lisalagace  and like the photo of the movie poster once I share it. Only my followers will be entered into the draw – just liking the pic alone does not count.

Also, if you don’t win, you can come to Scotiabank at 4pm on Monday where there will be another huge opportunity to win tickets, so make sure you’re there early!

The F Word hits theatres on August 22nd! Check out the trailer below:




Giveaway – Begin Again Prize Pack

begin again movie giveaway

My friends over at eOne have asked me to give you a chance to see the new Mark Ruffalo/Keira Knightley film Begin Again, for free! Yes, this one features Adam Levine attempting to act, but let’s not hold that against it.

It comes from the same team that brought us the beautiful music film Once, so I understandably have high hopes for it.

I have 9 music-themed prize packs to giveaway, and each prize pack includes the following:

  • A copy of the soundtrack on CD
  • A Run of Engagement pass for 2 valid at any cinema in Canada excluding Quebec
  • Branded headphones & headphone splitters
  • Guitar picks
  • Sunglasses

To enter, just email me at with the words ‘Begin Again’ in the subject line of your email.

As always, Facebook fans and weekly newsletter subscribers get extra entries, so use that handy little form in the sidebar to sign up if you haven’t already. Remember, you must have clicked the confirmation email in order to actually be considered a subscriber and get that extra entry.

Keep in mind the ROE passes are only valid for all the theatres in Canada excluding Quebec. Winners will be chosen on Sunday July 20th and contacted via email.

Watch the too cute trailer here, and try not to dream about Mark Ruffalo too much for the rest of the day:


Giveaway – Tracks Novel and Movie Tickets


Another awesome giveaway care of my friends over at Mongrel Media, for their new film Tracks which recently opened in Toronto. Any movie starring Adam Driver is a movie I highly recommend. Also, as a constant wanderluster, I absolutely adore this story because I have always dreamed of doing what this girl did. Traveling on your own is one of the best ways to see what you are made of.

Here’s what is up for grabs:

3x 1 copy of the novel the film is based on and 1 pass for 2 people to see the film in theaters.

3x 1 pass for two people to see the film in theaters.

That means there will be 6 winners!

Another giveaway! While the regularly scheduled content will return next week (after CMW madness) I’m sure you don’t mind the opportunity to win more free, awesome stuff.

This one comes care of Mongrel Media, for their new film Under The Skin which has just opened in Toronto. My sister saw it when it premiered at TIFF and she claims it is a total mind bender – I can’t wait to find out for myself.

1st Prize

2nd Prize

3rd Prize

  • 2 tickets to see the film during its Toronto run

Giveaway – Tickets to Six Hot Docs Films

hot_docs_2014 ticket giveaway

Hot Docs is here!!! This means I am going to be incredibly happy for the next 10 days – well, 8 days as I will have to go home next weekend for a family thing – but still.

As I have said many times before, this is my favourite film festival of them all, for one simple reason – I love real stories. There is no bullshit or fantasy, just the truth. Documentaries are raw and real and funny and interesting. They cover every facet of life from crime to love to art to music to comedy to justice to our most basic human struggles.

With that in mind – Hot Docs has given me 6 pairs of tickets to 6 extraordinary films playing at this year’s festival. All you have to do to win is send me an email ( lisa @ ) with the title of the film(s) you want to be entered into in the subject line of the email. I will respond to the winner 12 – 24 hours before the screening to let you know where to pick up your tickets. Please make sure you will definitely be able to attend the screening time listed before entering!

Here are the 6 films I wanted you all to have the chance to see:


Gruff Rhys of the Super Furry Animals will be attending the screening for a Q&A.

Exploring the modern teen movie genre from The Craft to Mean Girls and beyond. Those three classic movie mentions are more than enough reason to see this doc.

A lovely if depressing doc dealing with the brutal truth of the pain behind a breakup, and the way our brains are wired to addict us to someone so that breakups are as physically and emotionally painful as getting sober.
