About the film

Directed by Ava DuVernay (Middle of Nowhere), Selma has just picked up nominations for Best Picture and Best Song at this year's Academy Awards.

British actor David Oyelowo (The Butler) stars as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. alongside Tom Wilkinson (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel) as President Lyndon B. Johnson; Carmen Ejogo (Alex Cross) as Coretta King; Tim Roth (The Incredible Hulk) as Governor George Wallace; and Oprah Winfrey as Annie Lee Cooper.

The film tracks a dangerous and terrifying three month campaign led by Dr King which culminated in the epic march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama in March 1965. The campaign galvanised American public opinion and persuaded President Johnson to introduce the Voting Rights Act, protecting African-Americans’ right to vote. 2015 marks the 50th anniversary of this pivotal moment in the US Civil Rights Movement. 

We have teamed up with Pathé to offer you the chance to attend the Oscar-nominated film's premiere on January 27th in central London at the Curzon Mayfair. This will be a red carpet affair attended by cast and crew. Winners will need to be there in black tie dress for 6.30pm latest with the film starting at 7pm. Winners will be notified on 23rd January.
