Organisers of the forthcoming King’s Lynn Film Festival are offering free tickets in a special competition to promote the event.

“Feast Your Eyes” is the theme of the festival, with an international menu of fantastic films over the weekend of October 3-4.

The first five people to correctly answer the question at the end of this article will win a pair of tickets for the film of their choice.

Four of the films will be shown at St George’s Guildhall (Arts Centre), starting with Jiro Dreams of Sushi, the quirky tale of a tiny Tokyo restaurant which wins a Michelin star and attracts international foodie pilgrims. Sanzokuou Japanese Restaurant in Broad Street are supporting this film and offering Jiro ticket-holders a discount on their wide range of Japanese inspired food.

If you’ve been enjoying the recent TV programmes focusing on railway journeys, particularly those in India, then you may already have seen how India’s famous lunchbox delivery system works. Set in the bustling metropolis of Mumbai, The Lunchbox is the story of how a mix-up sparks romance between two lonely people.

Romance is in the air again in the magical Mexican film Like Water for Chocolate. When the love between Tita and Pedro is constantly thwarted, Tita discovers she can express her feelings through her cooking, with extraordinary results!

On Sunday, October 4, the Majestic Cinema at Lynn joins in the Film Festival fun with a screening of iconic 1980s film “The Breakfast Club” which brought charismatic bratpackers Emilio Estevez, Ally Sheedy, Molly Ringwald, Judd Nelson and Anthony Michal Hall together on screen as five students in detention with, seemingly, nothing in common... It’s the 30th anniversary of this fantastic coming-of-age film which is being re-released all over the UK.

The festival closes with Babette’s Feast. Set in 19th century Denmark, this film celebrates the power of food to bring people together as French refugee Babette prepares a tempting banquet for an austere community.

So, if your appetite has been whetted and you’d like to have a go at winning a pair of tickets then just e-mail with the answer to this question: In which Indian city is The Lunchbox set?

There is a closing date of next Friday, September 18, for your email entries to be submitted,
