The Hunger Games: Mockingjay High School Fundraising Contest!

mockingjay contest

We at Film.ca Cinemas invite student councils from Oakville’s high schools to participate in a fun fundraising promotion we are planning for the release of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 starting next Thursday November 20th!

Mockingjay is set to be the most popular film of the year for teens and we wanted to find a way to give back to them when they come see the movie. So we are calling it the Oakville High School Hunger Games – a friendly fundraising competition between Oakville’s high schools!

All students need to do to participate is come see Mockingjay at Film.ca Cinemas between November 20th and December 4th. Participating schools will have a ballot box set up in our lobby (all done by us, no work required on your part) and students will deposit their ticket into their school’s box when they come to see the movie. That’s it!

For every ticket in your school’s box, we will donate 50 cents to your student council. In addition on December 5th, we will tally the tickets in each box and the school with the most tickets will receive a $250 donation in addition!

All Oakville high schools are welcome to participate. Please contact Tori Nixon at vnixon(at)film.ca or 905-338-0494 ext. 206 to sign up your school and to get posters for distribution at your school.

Find us weekly in the Oakville Beaver starting Nov 6!



Starting today, Thursday November 6th, you can find our listings weekly in Thursday’s Oakville Beaver on the front page of the Artscene section along with an ad! We start off this Thursday with a full page outside wrap advertising our upcoming fall movies. We are pleased to be working closely with our friends at Metroland on this and much more in the future!
