Borderlines 2013 Caption Competition

Nostalgic about great old films? Fancy getting your hands on a set of DVDs celebrating archive film and the experience of cinema?  

To celebrate the re-release of Polanski's Tess, painstakingly restored by Pathé on DVD and due to be released by the BFI, we have a trio of DVDs kindly supplied by MACE (Media Archive for Central England), the BFI and the Electric in Birmingham to give away. All you have to do is leave a witty, entertaining or rather lovely caption in the comments section under one or more of these images and we'll pick our favourites to receive the prizes the day before Borderlines starts! Yes, we're giving stuff away before we've even begun.

Facebook comments and Twitter replies count too. We will contact you via the social network you use to leave your comment so don't forget to check your profile after Friday 1 March to see if you've won.
