PAPER PLANES MOVIE BECOMES A REALITY FOR TOWNSVILLE FAMILY.
Sydney: 19 March 2015
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!
