There are also screenings in Auckland and Christchurch. Details on dates and venues will follow shortly.

If you are stuck for an opening sentence for your submission, try " I hate banks because..."

The first five stories received before the 19th of March - and selected for publication - will be eligible to opt for a double pass to a special preview screening at the Paramount Cinema (6.30pm March 19th), featuring a Q&A session with the director and producer of the movie.

(Tickets to this screening are also available now from the Embassy box office - $12)

The Bank stars David Wenham ("Lord of the Rings: Two Towers"; "Better Than Sex") and Anthony LaPaglia ("Summer of Sam", "A View from The Bridge").

The preview screening will be attended by producer John Maynard and writer/director Robert Connolly who will be available for a Q&A at the end of the film. The audience will be comprised of politicians, bankers, lawyers, economists, accountants, stockbrokers etc which should make for some interesting dialogue.
