Competition: Win ‘Miss Bala’ on DVD *closed*

To celebrate the DVD release of Gerardo Naranjo’s Mexican thriller Miss Bala (2011) – which stars newcomer Stephanie Sigman and Noe Hernandez – we have THREE DVD copies of the film to give away to our world cinema-loving fans. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook fans, so if you haven’t already, head over to, ‘Like’ us, and then follow the instructions below.

In Miss Bala, Sigman stars as Laura Guerrero, a young aspiring beauty queen who finds herself embroiled within a violent drug trafficking cartel, headed up by malevolent kingpin Lino (Noe Hernandez). After trying out for the ‘Miss Bala’ beauty pageant with best friend Suzu, the two end up at a seedy party in town which is subsequently attacked by Lino and his AK-carrying personal army. After making a number of enquiries regarding the now-vanished Suzu, Laura becomes a pawn for the drug traffickers, carrying out a number of shady missions in return for information – and also the continued safety of her father and younger brother.

To be in with a chance of winning one of THREE DVD copies of Miss Bala, all you have to do is answer this simple question:
