Competition: Woody Allen bundle *closed*

This January, the BFI celebrate the work of legendary filmmaker Woody Allen with the Wise Cracks: The Comedies of Woody Allen season, and to celebrate we’re offering ONE lucky reader a pair of tickets to one of several Allen screenings, a signed edition of Diane Keaton’s critically acclaimed memoir Then Again and an exclusive BFI Woody Allen poster. We also have a pair of screening tickets as a runner-up prize. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook fans, so if you haven’t already, head over to facebook.com/CineVueUK, ‘Like’ us, and then follow the instructions below.

BFI Southbank launches the New Year with an offering of thrills and laughter from Woody Allen, a most prolific filmmaker whose career as a director has spanned just over six decades and 40 feature films. A celebration of his classic comedies will screen throughout January, including extended runs of both Zelig (1983) and the multi-Oscar-winning Hannah and Her Sisters (1986). Allen’s career began by writing jokes in a local newspaper before progressing to stand-up comedy, then to writing for television and eventually screenwriting and appearing in films, until it was clear, to him, that he needed to direct films himself.

The Wise Cracks: The Comedies of Woody Allen season starts with Bananas (1971) and the sci-fi Sleeper (1973), through the period pieces Love and Death (1975) and A Midsummer Nights Sex Comedy (1982), to more recent titles such as Bullets Over Broadway (1994), Celebrity (1998) and Vicky Cristina Barcelona (2008), plus the Allen classics Annie Hall (1977) and Manhattan (1979). The season concludes with a screenings of his most recent offering Midnight in Paris (2011), his biggest box office success yet.

Alongside prizes of Diane Keaton’s critically acclaimed memoir Then Again and an exclusive BFI Woody Allen poster, we also have a two pairs of tickets (one pair for the winner, one pair for the runner up) to one of the following screenings at the BFI.
