The Australian Film Industry Bushfire Appeal

Like all Australians, we have been rocked by the deadly bushfires burning across our beautiful country. The level of destruction is almost beyond comprehension, and our hearts go out to all those who have been affected.

The Australian Film Industry has banded together with a number of initiatives to support the charities who are working tirelessly to protect and assist in our country’s recovery. Thank you to everyone in the community who has already opened their hearts, and donated their money and time to the cause.

If you are looking for any ideas on what you can see visit www.madmanfilms.com.au, as now is the perfect time to head to the cinema and support a great cause.

We will update this post with any additional fundraising events or appeals as they come to hand.
