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!
A Lion Returns
A Lion Returns begins with the return of Jamal, who has arrived back in Australia after spending 18 months in the Middle East. No-one knows what he did or who he was with. He’s back in the country and wants to see his terminally ill mother, however has to deal with his strong minded older brother Omar, his wife Heidi and their young son, but most importantly his unforgiving father. But why has Jamal really come back? Is he a militant with a cause or an easily led pawn in a bigger global picture? A story about redemption, forgiveness and the consequences of your actions on the people you leave behind.
How the funds will be used: The team will be using most of the funds to pay actors, crew, equipment, catering, locations fees, vehicles and armourer.
