Contest: Ghosts With Shit Jobs Toronto Premiere!

Toronto author and publisher Jim Munroe has been working on making a movie for the past few years, and it’s finally done and ready for its Toronto premiere and screening!

To celebrate, Jim has gifted us 3 pairs of tickets and one super-exclusive LOCALLY OWNED DATA USB BRACELET (a hit on Kickstarter…!) to you lucky customers of The Beguiling! Read the description of the premiere below, or scroll down for the contest entry details. And if you like, you can just buy tickets as well.

Wednesday, May 30th, 7PM
@ The Royal Theatre, 608 College Street
Tickets $10, Available at

At the beginning of the month, the GHOSTS WITH SHIT JOBS sold out world premiere at SCI-FI-LONDON took Best Feature of the European fest. Last week the Kickstarter campaign raised $20K, 4 times the original goal. Now tickets are on sale for its North American premiere in Toronto on Wed. May 30, 7pm, at the Royal (608 College St).

There will be a Q&A and an afterparty after the screening. As a special thank you to the town that made it possible, No Media Kings is giving a free book, DVD or t-shirt to each person who preorders tickets. You can watch the trailer and order tickets at:

In the future, jobs still suck — but in whole new ways.

By 2040, the economy has flipped and North Americans are a cheap labour pool for wealthy Asian markets. A Chinese documentary show focuses on the “ghosts” (Cantonese slang for white people) unlucky enough to have been born into the slums of Toronto in a special report that translates as “Ghosts With Shit Jobs.”
