Win a Lynn Shelton DVD Pack!

Lynn Shelton Cover

The last competition we ran got such a great response, we thought we’d run another. Because giving you things gives us joy. Joy.

This September past we had the wonderful filmmaker Lynn Shelton on the show. Thanks to Madman Entertainment, we have a DVD set featuring three of Lynn’s films: Humpday, Your Sister’s Sister and Touchy Feely. But that’s not all! In that particular episode of Hyphenates, we reviewed the brilliantly funny New Zealand horror-comedy What We Do In The Shadows, and because Madman is so great, they’re also throwing that into the mix. We know. You’re like, “But that’s too much great stuff in one single competition!”, but we’re all about pleasure overload here at Hi4H HQ.

DVDs

To win the set, simply answer the following question:

In the September 2014 episode of Hell Is For Hyphenates, Lynn Shelton mentions the name of a film that is “absolutely in my top five list of films ever”. Which film is it and who directed it?

To enter, send your answer to competition@hellisforhyphenates.com by midnight on December 31 2014 AEST. All correct answers will be put into a gigantic electronic sorting machine or possibly a hat, and the winning entry will be drawn at random. The winner will then be notified by email.

If you don’t want to leave it to the fates, you can order the discs right this second from Madman: Humpday, Your Sister’s Sister, Touchy Feely, What We Do In The Shadows.

What We Do In The Shadows

Win a Jacques Tati Box Set!

Jacques Tati Collection

We know that, in addition to the one hour of free content we send into your ears every month, you’re probably still wondering what we’ve done for you lately. That’s a perfectly fair question, and we’d like to answer it in the form of a DVD giveaway.

Jacques Tati DVD

Thanks to Madman Entertainment, we have a DVD box set of the Jacques Tati: The Restored Collection to give away to one lucky listener. The set includes everything Tati made: not just his feature films, but all the alternate edits of those films, plus his TV special Parade, plus seven of his short films and the documentary The Magnificent Tati. It’s a damn impressive collection.

To win the set, simply answer the following question:

In the October 2014 episode of Hell Is For Hyphenates, we discussed the works of Jacques Tati and the effect he had on cinema. Which two modern directors do we claim were influenced by him?

To enter, send your answer to competition@hellisforhyphenates.com by midnight on 30 November 2014 AEST. All correct answers will be put into some sort of electronic randomiser (probably a hat) and the winner will be drawn at random. The winner will be notified by email.

If you don’t want to leave it to the fates, you can order the set on DVD or Blu-ray right now!
