Breathe will be released nation-wide on 26th December 2017 in Australia.
Polio Australia, with the help of Village Cinemas, was fortunate to secure the rights to 2 exclusive early-release screenings of the highly acclaimed movie Breathe, a real-life story of tragedy and resilience. Polio Australia ran the screenings of Breathe, starring Andrew Garfield (Hacksaw Ridge) and Claire Foy (The Crown), in Geelong and Melbourne during November and raised almost $8,000 from the two events.
Polio Australia thanks Independent Board Member, Gary Newton, for all his work in negotiating the two screenings—especially in his home town of Geelong, which attracted 100+ people. Gary was also able to secure sponsorship from a number of organisations, as well as donations from individuals who were unable to attend; they are warmly acknowledged and thanked as follows:
APCO Service Stations
Buxton Real Estate
Rotary Club of Geelong East
Yellow Brick Road Geelong
Raffles and donation box takings
