Come along and support this amazing film project. I know the director, Phil Crawford and he and young people involved in the making of this film have put their heart and souls into it.See the information below.Please pass on to those who you think will be interested.
Hope to see you there
I wanted to let you know about this film Rites of Passage and to see if you would like to come to a screening of it. It's a unique film made by a group of disadvantaged young people about their lives and it's a film that is stimulating a dialogue about what is happening in the lives of young people today.
The Organisers are bringing some of these young people to the Premiere of the film in Melbourne. I am hoping that you can help us give the young people involved in the making of the film an opportunity to see their film premiere in a real cinema. And give all of us the opportunity to see this amazing looking film in a cinema venue as well!
The organisers have made a booking at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image and they need to confirm it by the end of September. They need to sell enough tickets to cover the cost of the venue. If we can get behind them and help to sell enough tickets the film will screen at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image. If they don't sell enough tickets, the screening will still go ahead on the date advertised, but it will be screened in a more intimate venue.
If you think it looks worthwhile then we should all invite colleagues and friends and get them to buy tickets and buy them early. The organisers will need to confirm bookings on the cinema a few weeks before the screening.
Thanks for reading and having a look at this. I think it will be a really fantastic event.
