As a non-profit website dedicated to the support and promotion of Australian made films, Cinema Australia rarely gets the opportunity to throw cash at crowdfunding projects. Trust us, if we had the money we’d be executive producers on almost every new Australian film calling for supporters through the myriad of crowdfunding platforms available on the interwebs.
That’s why we’ve launched this feature – The Crowdfunders – which will shamelessly plug projects calling for your dollar. It’s just another way for us to do what we love doing most – supporting Aussie cinema!
Here’s our latest plug…
Starring Lawrence Leung, Gabrielle Chan
Based on the true story of writer/director Tin Pang’s (The Pale Moonlight) experience as a carer, the film celebrates the incredible bond between a son and his mother after she suffers a stroke. Fraught by physical challenges and psychological shifts, their journey to recovery will be filled with emotional twists and turns, some that may be too difficult to bear. The script depicts a raw, sometimes harrowing conversation between a mother and son.
How the funds will be used:
Your support will contribute to the costs of producing Mother. Child., such as crew, cast, gear, studio hire and production design. It will also help us to market and distribute the film so that we can share this story with other people who have been affected by stroke.

PLEASE NOTE: Not all crowdfunding projects are successful and just because a project has reached it’s target, it doesn’t guarantee the film will be made, or that you’ll receive any reward or compensation for your donation. So in saying that, Cinema Australia takes no responsibility for any wrongdoing on the fundraiser’s behalf.
