This month, Stella Artois is giving film fans the chance to win tickets to a preview screening of the highly anticipated real-life thriller The Imposter. The country’s number one premium lager brand* has partnered with Picturehouse Cinemas to host the UK preview of the film, followed by a special Q&A session with the film’s director, Bart Layton, and acclaimed author and filmmaker, Jon Ronson.
The Imposter is British director Bart Layton’s feature debut and tells the unlikely but true story of how one Frenchman convinced a Texan family he was their son who had gone missing three years earlier. The gripping thriller has received rave reviews at Sundance, SXSW and SilverDocs Film Festivals as well as winning the Grand Jury Award at Miami International Film Festival and enjoyed five star reviews at its European Premiere at the Edinburgh International Film Festival this year.
The exclusive event will take place at the Hackney Picturehouse and will also be satellite broadcast to over 30 cinemas on Sunday 19th August at 3pm. Film fans have the chance to win tickets** to attend via the Stella Artois UK Facebook page – the online home of the Stella Artois Cannes Cinema Club, a unique club bringing to life great moments in film with exclusive experiences for film lovers everywhere. To be in with a chance of winning, fans can click on a dedicated tab at the top of the Stella Artois UK Facebook page that will direct them to a short entry form. They will then be entered into a prize draw that will be live from Monday 6th August to Sunday 12th August. The winners will be drawn and notified on Monday 13th August.
