This is such great news!

Being approved for fiscal sponsorship by the much respected Documentary Australia Foundation Board means two things -

Firstly, this film has been reviewed and accepted by a organisation that is only supports the best quality independent documentary films submitted to it. We’re in that list!

Secondly, we can now accept tax deductible donations directly from our page on the Documentary Australia Foundation (DAF) Board website. Making it easier for donors to support this project.

‘Winter Solstice’ free community event. 5 - 7.30pm 21 June 2019, QE2 square, Albury

The Winter Solstice was started in 2013 by the founders of Survivors of Suicide and Friends, Annette and Stuart Baker. Survivors of Suicide and Friends is an Albury based organisation whose aim is to bring the subject of suicide and mental illness into the public forum to be addressed without shame or stigma. The Winter Solstice is an opportunity for communities to gather on the longest (and often coldest) night of the year to be entertained, enlightened and supported. http://www.wintersolstice.org.au/
