The SFIFF’s been very generous with their giveaways for y’all Appeal readers, but this one takes the cake: passes for two not just to Thursday night’s closing night screening of Unmade Beds at 7 at the Castro, but to the afterparty (scroll all the way down) at 9:30 at Mezzanine. People are paying $75 each to buy these tickets, but you and yours can get in for zip. Zero. Zilch.

One winner will be chosen at random using this handy contest widget which we’re hoping actually works. And hope to see you there — I know I’m going, Alex is going, Beth will be video reporting from the party — so we’re not just saying it’s gong to be fun, we know it’s going to be fun.

You must be 21 to enter this contest, and must enter this contest with your full, real name — you’ll need to present picture ID for both the screening and the party, so we are totally not kidding about this. Fake names or not-full names will be disqualified.

Ignore how the contest says your name will appear, it won’t, and we promise to keep your real name between us and SFIFF.

The contest is over, thank to all who entered.
