Ticket Giveaway – Reel 2 Real Film Festival for Youth

by Kenji Maeda on February 17, 2009

I’m giving away one pair of tickets to the Friday, February 20 Opening Night of the Reel 2 Real International Film Festival for Youth.  The evening will include the presentation of two awards and the Canadian Premiere screening of a Japanese film, Super Granny.

Opening night takes place at 6:30 pm at Vancity Theatre (1181 Seymour Street, Vancouver BC)

Read the details below for giveaway entry instructions.



Saga no gabai baachan (Super Granny) is set in a rural village in southern Japan in the late 1950s, the film tells the story of seven-year-old Akihiro. When his bar-hostess mother finds it a struggle to support her two sons, he is whisked away from Hiroshima to live with his grandmother in small-town Saga. Akihiro’s unconventional yet charming “super granny” is an expert in finding the bright side of everything despite living in severe poverty. Based on the autobiographical novel of Japanese comedian Yoshichi Shimada, Super Granny is a delightful story that celebrates the wealth and importance of family ties, even in the most meager times.
