If you’ve never seen When Harry Met Sally... on the big screen, you’re in for a treat. As part of their first-ever Film For All Campaign (launched during this year’s Festival), TFF’s presenting sponsor AT&T is proud to screen the beloved classic When Harry Met Sally... at outdoor venues in all 5 boroughs simultaneously on Tuesday, June 24. The best part? The screenings are absolutely free.
Without a doubt, When Harry Met Sally... is one of the most quotable movies of all time, thanks to Nora Ephron’s thoughtful, funny and extraordinarily truthful script. To celebrate, we want to hear from you on the Twittersphere! It’s simple to enter. Beginning today and through June 25th, just tweet your favorite line from When Harry Met Sally... and include the hashtag #filmforallsweeps in your Tweet for your chance to win. The winners will be selected at random.
You probably want to know what’s in it for you, right? We are thrilled to offer 1 grand prize and 4 first prizes that are guaranteed to delight all New Yorkers at heart. In honor of When Harry Met Sally..., Katz’s Delicatessen (home of the ‘I’ll have what she’s having’ scene) has graciously donated a dinner for two for our big giveaway. The other prize will be a special Vesey Pass (which is an one-day admission for two to certain TFF events) for the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival.
We promise that the most difficult part will be choosing which quote from When Harry Met Sally... to Tweet! (And if you need a reminder, here are a few of our own faves!) Plus, if you don’t win, you’ll still be able to see this seminal romantic comedy for free in any of the 5 boroughs on Tuesday, June 24. So get busy and start tweeting!

The “Film For All” Sweepstakes
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY.
A PURCHASE WILL NOT IMPROVE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING.
PROMOTION DESCRIPTION: The “Film For All” Sweepstakes (the “Sweepstakes”) begins on or about June 19, 2014 at or around 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time (“ET”) and ends on June 25, 2014 at 11:59 p.m. ET (the “Promotion Period”). At the end of the Promotion Period, a random drawing will be conducted to select one (1) winner of the “Grand Prize” (as defined herein) and four (4) winners of the “First Prize” (as defined herein) for the applicable drawing period from among all eligible entries received, as more fully set forth below. Entry to the Sweepstakes does not constitute entry into any other promotion, contest or sweepstakes. By participating in the Sweepstakes, each entrant unconditionally accepts and agrees to comply with and abide by these Official Rules and the decisions of Tribeca Film Festival NYC, LLC (the “Sponsor”), which shall be final and binding in all respects.
ELIGIBILITY: Only legal U.S. residents of the fifty (50) United States, and the District of Columbia, who are located in the U.S. at the time of entry and are eighteen (18) years of age or older at the time of entry are eligible to enter. Sponsor and each of its respective parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, distributors, retailers, sales representatives, advertising and promotion agencies and each of their respective officers, directors, and employees (collectively, with Sponsor, the “Promotion Entities”), and each of their immediate family members and/or people living in the same household are NOT eligible to enter the Sweepstakes or win a prize. Sponsor reserves the right to verify eligibility qualifications of the winners. This Sweepstakes is void where prohibited.
HOW TO ENTER:
A potential entrant must have a valid Twitter account to enter the Sweepstakes. If a potential entrant does not have a Twitter account, visit www.twitter.com and register in accordance with the enrollment instructions for a free Twitter account.
BY SUBMITTING A TWEET ALONG WITH THE HASHTAG #filmforallsweeps, YOU ARE INDICATING THAT YOU HAVE READ, UNDERSTOOD AND FULLY AGREE TO THESE OFFICIAL RULES. DO NOT SUBMIT A TWEET WITHOUT FIRST REVIEWING THESE OFFICIAL RULES.
NOTE: Entry must be made by the entrant, only via Twitter. Entries made by any other individual or any entity, and/or originating at any other platform, including but not limited to commercial sweepstakes subscription notification and/or entering service sites, will be declared invalid and disqualified for this Sweepstakes. Tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Sweepstakes, including but not limited to the use of any device to automate the entry process, is prohibited and any entries deemed by Sponsor in its sole discretion, to have been submitted in this manner, will be void. In the event a dispute regarding the identity of the individual who actually submitted an entry cannot be resolved to Sponsor’s satisfaction, the affected entry will be deemed ineligible. Promotion Entities shall not be responsible for incorrect or inaccurate entry information whether caused by Internet users or by any of the equipment or programming associated with or utilized in the Sweepstakes or by any technical or human error that may occur in the processing of the entries in the Sweepstakes. Promotion Entities assume no responsibility or liability for any error, omission, interruption, deletion, theft or destruction, or unauthorized access to, or alteration of entries.
WINNER SELECTION AND NOTIFICATION: At the end of the Promotion Period, the winners will be randomly selected in a drawing from all eligible entries received throughout the Promotion Period. The drawing will be conducted by Sponsor or its designee, using randomization methods selected by Sponsor in its sole discretion. Potential winners will be notified by Direct Message (to the potential winner's Twitter account) and will be required to privately (through Twitter Direct Message, email, or other secure, private means) provide his/her name and email address necessary to receive the “Prize Claim Documents” (as defined herein). Potential winners will need to respond to this request within three (3) business days of the drawing. Sponsor shall have no liability for any winner notification that is lost, intercepted or not received by a potential winner for any reason. Time is of the essence in awarding each prize. If, despite reasonable efforts, a potential winner does not respond within three (3) business days of the first notification attempt, or if the prize or prize notification is returned as unclaimed or undeliverable to such potential winner, such potential winner will forfeit his or her prize and an alternate winner may be selected. If any potential winner is found to be ineligible, or if he/she has not complied with these Official Rules or declines a prize for any reason prior to award, such potential winner will be disqualified and an alternate winner may be selected. If a dispute regarding eligibility cannot be resolved to Sponsor's satisfaction, the entry will be deemed ineligible. Sponsor may successively attempt to contact up to two (2) potential winners of an applicable prize in accordance with such procedure, and if there is still no confirmed winner of such applicable prize after such attempts, if any, have been made, such prize may go unawarded.
PUBLICITY RELEASE: By participating in the Sweepstakes, in addition to any other grants which may be granted in any other agreement entered into between Sponsor and any entrant in and/or winner of the Sweepstakes, each entrant irrevocably grants to Sponsor and the Promotion Entities and their respective successors, assigns and licensees, the right to use such entrant’s name, Twitter handle, photograph, likeness, voice, biographical information, and any other personal characteristics, in addition to the entrant’s statements, and address (city and state) in any and all media now known or hereafter developed for any purpose, in perpetuity, including without limitation, advertising and promotional 3
purposes as well as in, on or in connection with the Platform or the Sweepstakes or other promotions, and each entrant and/or prize winner hereby release Sponsor and the Promotion Entities from any liability with respect thereto.
PRIZES/ODDS: There are one (1) “Grand Prize” and four (4) “First Prizes” available (collectively, the “Prizes”), as more fully set forth herein. Odds of winning a prize in connection with the Promotion Period depend on the number of eligible entries received for the Promotion Period.
The “Grand Prize” consists of:
1. A gift certificate to Katz’s Delicatessen (205 East Houston Street, New York, New York), to be used by the winner at one (1) meal. The total ARV of the gift certificate is Fifty U.S. Dollars (US$50) and, for sake of clarity, the gift certificate does not include alcohol or gratuity; and
2. Two (2) daily “Vesey” passes (one (1) for winner and one (1) for winner’s guest)*.
Each “First Prize” consists of two (2) daily “Vesey” passes (one (1) for winner and one (1) for winner’s guest)*.
*Vesey passes are valid for use at select 2015 Tribeca Film Festival® events and only on dates as selected by Sponsor in its sole discretion. Use of each Vesey pass is subject to additional terms and limitations of the issuer, including, without limitation, that: (a) each Vesey pass is valid only during the date noted by Sponsor; (b) each Vesey pass allows the bearer (one person) access to official 2015 Tribeca Film Festival hospitality lounges, Tribeca Drive-In® events and Tribeca Drive-In® reserved seating, 2015 Tribeca Film Festival general public screenings including ticketed premiere events (excluding all RSVP events) and public panel discussions; provided, however, that admittance is not guaranteed for any such event(s).

Vesey passes have no monetary value and may not be resold.

Applicable portions of each Prize will be delivered only to an address in the 50 United States and D.C.
Actual odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received. Many will enter, only five (5) will win.
GENERAL PRIZE CONDITIONS: A Prize will be awarded only if each potential prize winner fully complies with these Official Rules. All portions of the prizes are non-assignable and non-transferable. All details and other restrictions of the prizes not specified in these Official Rules will be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. Each prize winner shall be solely responsible for all federal, state and/or local taxes, and the reporting consequences thereof, and for any other fees or costs associated with the applicable prize. Each potential winner will be required to execute an Affidavit of Eligibility, a Liability Release, and (where legal) a Publicity Release (collectively, “Prize Claim Documents”). If a winner is under the age of majority in such winner’s state of residence (a “minor”), at Sponsor’s option, the 4
applicable prize either will be awarded in the name of the parent or legal guardian of such minor Prize winner, or the parent or legal guardian of such minor winner will be required to ratify and sign Prize Claim Documents. If any potential winner (or, in the case of a minor, such minor winner’s parent or legal guardian) fails or refuses to sign and return all relevant Prize Claim Documents within three (3) business days of prize notification, the winner may be disqualified and an alternate winner may be selected.
Sponsor makes no warranties, and hereby disclaims any and all warranties, express or implied, concerning any prize furnished in connection with the Sweepstakes. WITHOUT LIMITING THE GENERALITY OF THE FOREGOING, SUCH PRIZES ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AND SPONSOR HEREBY DISCLAIMS ALL SUCH WARRANTIES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND/OR NON-INFRINGEMENT.

Entrants (and any minor entrant’s parent or legal guardian) agree that sponsor (A) shall not be responsible or liable for, and are hereby released from, any and all costs, injuries, losses or damages of any kind, including, without limitation, death and bodily injury, due in whole or in part, directly or indirectly, to participation in the Sweepstakes or any Sweepstakes-related activity, or from entrants’ acceptance, receipt, possession and/or use or misuse of any prize, and (B) have not made any warranty, representation or guarantee express or implied, in fact or in law, with respect to any prize, including, without limitation, to such prize’s quality or fitness for a particular purpose.

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Sponsor is not responsible for incomplete, illegible, misdirected, misprinted, late, lost, damaged, stolen, or postage-due submissions or prize notifications; or for lost, interrupted, inaccessible or unavailable networks, servers, satellites, Internet service providers, websites, or other connections; or for miscommunications, failed, jumbled, scrambled, delayed, or misdirected computer, telephone or cable transmissions; or for any technical malfunctions, failures, difficulties or other errors of any kind or nature; or for the incorrect or inaccurate capture of information, or the failure to capture any information.

If a dispute as to the identity of the individual who actually submitted an entry cannot be resolved to Sponsor’s satisfaction, the affected entry will be deemed ineligible. Sponsor reserves the right to modify, extend, suspend, or terminate the Sweepstakes if it determines, in its sole discretion, that the Sweepstakes is technically impaired or corrupted or that fraud or technical problems, failures or malfunctions or other causes beyond Sponsor’s control have destroyed or severely undermined or to any degree impaired the integrity, administration, security, proper play and/or feasibility of the Sweepstakes as contemplated herein. In the event an insufficient number of eligible entries are received and/or Sponsor is prevented from conducting the drawing, awarding prizes or continuing with the Sweepstakes as contemplated herein by any event beyond its reasonable control, including but not limited to fire, 5

If the Sweepstakes is terminated before the designated end date, Sponsor will (if possible) select the winner in a random drawing from all eligible, non-suspect entries received as of the date of the event giving rise to the termination. Inclusion in such drawing shall be each entrant’s sole and exclusive remedy under such circumstances. Only the type and quantity of prizes described in these Official Rules will be awarded.
