Happy Thursday, y'all! I'm sooooooo excited for this post, because I'm doing my very first giveaway on the blog! Sorry to all who were inquiring after my FB post last night - I am NOT preggo, but I'm clearly overly excited about doing a blog giveaway...lol!
Remember yesterday's post about the Caribbean Tales Film Festival, opening on September 5th? Well, get ready - the lovely people at Caribbean Tales have graciously given me a pair of tickets to the opening gala, and I want to give them to one lucky '83 To Infinity reader!
Tickets for you and a friend to the Caribbean Tales Opening Gala and screening, hosted by the Toronto Consulate General for the Republic of Trinidad & Tobago. The gala and screening will be held in Toronto on September 5th starting at 6:30pm, and the film screening begins at 8:30pm. Live music will be provided by Kobo Town - a Toronto-based, Trinidad-influenced calypso band, and DJs giving us the best in Caribbean music. Among the scheduled attendees are Motion (spoken word poet, emcee, and playwright - did y'all catch Aneemah's Spot?), Cameron Bailey (Artistic Director of the Toronto Int'l Film Festival), Frances-Anne Solomon (founder of Caribbean Tales), and obviously, the Toronto Consulate General for T&T. The main feature of the night will be the screening of The Story of Lovers Rock by Menelik Shabazz, and all this is goin' down at the beautiful Harbourfront Centre Lakeside Terrace!
