Congratulations to Sarah-Jane Hume from Bohle Plains in Townsville – WINNER of the My Cinema Paper Planes competition!

Sarah-Jane Hume and her family are the newly announced winners of a family trip for four to Tokyo, Japan thanks to the Independent Cinema Association of Australia (My Cinema) and Roadshow Films this March.

Sarah-Jane Hume - a Primary School teacher from Bohle Plains - entered into the competition to win a trip to Tokyo when she and her family saw Paper Planes at Reading Cinemas in Townsville.

Participating independent cinemas across the country have been overwhelmed by the positive response to the first-ever My Cinema promotion for an Australian Film. “Paper Planes”, co-written and directed by Robert Connolly and starring Sam Worthington and Deborah Mailman, has been hugely popular with audiences around Australia.

Since the competition kick-off on 15 January 2015, thousands of entries have been received nationally as Paper Planes moviegoers flew entry forms into the draw for their chance to win.

Much to her surprise and elation, Sarah-Jane’s entry was selected at midday on Wednesday, 18 March 2015 as the winning entry form.

Adrianne Pecotic, CEO of ICAA said “A huge CONGRATULATIONS  go out from the team at My Cinema to Sarah-Jane and her family – soon to be on their way to Tokyo, Japan! Thank you to all our participating cinemas, and especially to Roadshow and Screen Australia for supporting the first My Cinema promotion for an Australian film.”

Cinemagoers can join the action and have the chance to be the next competition winner,  by registering on the  My Cinema mailing list – and stay tuned for our next competition announcement!

Fly-In Fly-Out [LIVE] 2:00PM Sunday, Mar 29

A funny and gritty play about growing up in a mining town, dealing with change and serving fried chicken ...
Fly-In Fly-Out [LIVE] 

2:00PM Sunday, Mar 29, 2015
TICKETS Adults $25.  Students/Concession/Groups 10+ $20  on sale now

Jenny lives in a small Queensland mining town: she’s almost finished Grade Ten and is struggling to balance school, her part-time jobs, her wayward sister, her relationships, and everyone’s expectations. When the charismatic Seb flies into town, Jenny’s balancing act is thrown into chaos and her world threatens to collapse around her.

Fly-In Fly-Out looks at how families and communities deal with upheaval and how we strive to adapt. The play examines universal themes through the prism of the mining boom and the influx of fly-in fly-out workers into a small community.

From the makers of the critically acclaimed Snagged and Ithaca Road, Fly-In Fly-Out has been developed in consultation with communities and young people throughout Central Queensland. The show is a must see for audiences of all ages and begins the conversation about what communities can do to develop resilience in the face of change.

Written by Robert Kronk with Howard Cassidy
Director: Howard Cassidy
Featuring: Peter Cossar, Toby Martin, Timothy Potter, Stephanie Tandy and Tammy Weller
Design: Josh McIntosh
Sound design/composition: Evan Dean
Lighting design: Jason Glenwright
Producers: DeBase Productions

Commissioned by the Education Community Alliance (ECA), produced by debase and supported by Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts and ArTour with financial assistance from the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.

“Our students thoroughly enjoyed the performance. In fact they were the most animated I’d ever seen them … the play wove many of the characteristics of our communities, and the social and economic issues we encounter, brilliantly into a script that was very appealing …”
– Kim Wood, Clermont State High School

“Fly-In Fly-Out is energetic and fast moving with a rapid tempo that ensures full attention. The characters are instantly lovable. The themes of family, first love, grief, pressure, work/home balance are easily relatable and pose questions for students and teachers to ponder well after the show … it set tongues wagging.”
– Natalie Nunan, Brisbane Bayside College
