At bOing! 2019, we are joining forces with National Lottery Cinema Day to offer you the chance to bag a free adult ticket to a film at the festival on Sunday 25 August!

Did you know that every time you play the National Lottery, you’re supporting British film as well as giving amazing training and development opportunities to the next generation of British filmmakers?  

To say thank you, The National Lottery invites you to see a film for free at Gulbenkian on Sunday 25 August.
