Sustainable Partnerships Australia (SPA) is teaming up with Sunshine Coast filmmakers for a debut charity screening of independent feature film on Wednesday 27 August.
Local filmmakers Terrance Young and Ashlee Jensen are launching their film, 500 Miles, to Sunshine Coast residents and are generously donating 60% of proceeds from ticket sales to Sustainable Partnerships Australia’s Young Women Initiative.
SPA Project Officer, Jade Frieser said she was really excited about charity screening.
“The charity screening is a great opportunity to see a locally produced film and support our Young Women’s Initiative on the Sunshine Coast.
“The Young Women’s Initiative identifies issues and challenges facing young women on the Sunshine Coast and aims to provide training, mentoring, guidance and support to young Sunshine Coast women,” Jade said.
The independent film recently screened at the Palm Beach International Film Festival in the United States after its premiere in Brisbane earlier in the year.
The charity screening will be held at 7pm on Wednesday the 27 August. Tickets cost $25 and can be purchased through the 500 miles Facebook page at www.facebook.com/500movie.
500 Miles is an Australian Independent Feature Film produced by Mad Anth’m Productions and Performance Pictures. The film focus is on Emily, a teenage girl that the world seemingly forgot about. Abandoned by her parents and forced into foster care at a young age, Emily turned to a dark world of sex and drugs to hide her fear. The only thing that can save her is the one thing she has never known; Love.
