$2 from every ticket sold on Sunday, January 19 at participating cinemas will be donated to three charities supporting bushfire relief efforts
This statement was issued by the Motion Picture Distributors Association of Australia (MPDAA), National Association of Cinema Operators (NACO), Australian Independent Distributors Association (AIDA) and Independent Cinemas Australia (ICA),
“As an industry, we have been deeply saddened, like all Australians and many people around the world, by the bushfires ravaging our country. The loss of lives, wildlife, homes and land is heart-breaking, and our thoughts are with all those who have been impacted.
We send our sincere thanks to all the firefighters, volunteers, defence personnel, charities, organisations and communities who are working tirelessly to protect and support fire-affected Australians. We gratefully acknowledge the contribution of those who have donated their time, money and resources.
We want to help, so on Sunday, 19 January, we will be donating $2 from every movie ticket sold at participating cinemas to bushfire relief.
100% of the proceeds will be shared across three Australian charities doing incredible work in fire-affected communities.”
Ausfilm supports this initiative.
