British Film Festival Media Preview: A Night to Remember with ABCC

6 October 2022

Greetings, film enthusiasts and advocates of Breast Cancer Awareness Month! Last night marked a special moment as I had the privilege to attend the media preview of the British Film Festival at the iconic Palace Cinemas Como South Yarra. The evening’s highlight was the screening of the much-anticipated sequel, FISHERMAN’S FRIENDS 2: ONE AND ALL.

A heartfelt thank you extends to the exceptional Palace Cinema Curator, Kim Petalas, and the entire team for their gracious invitation that allowed me to immerse myself in this cinematic experience.

As I sat among fellow moviegoers, it dawned on me that this event was more than just a film screening; it was an opportunity to make a difference. The Australian Breast Care Centre (ABCC), a cause I am deeply committed to, stands proudly as the official charity partner of the British Film Festival during this significant #BreastCancerAwareness month.

For those eagerly anticipating the festival’s 10th anniversary, I encourage you to secure your tickets for the opening on October 19. Simply visit to reserve your spot and be part of a cinematic celebration that’s more meaningful than ever before.

I often hear individuals express their desire to contribute to the cause of early detection and testing, particularly those who have benefited from it. To all who share this sentiment, now is the time to join hands and make a meaningful impact. Join me at the movies, where we can create ripples of awareness that resonate far and wide.

Your involvement goes beyond the silver screen. By purchasing tickets, you not only have a chance to win remarkable prizes but also contribute to the ABCC’s mission of raising funds for genetic testing. The generosity of our donors has gifted us a treasure trove of fundraising prizes, including a Lux Sports Car Rental gift certificate valued at $3,000, a Christian Dior gift package worth $1,000, and 10 genetic tests from GeneType, accompanied by consultations with Dr. Nicole Yap, each valued at $595. Moreover, 10 lucky individuals will win double passes to the British Film Festival, featuring the captivating opening film, Mrs Harris Goes to Paris, along with copies of its award-winning book. Not to forget, a culinary delight awaits, with a dinner for two at the exquisite France Soir Restaurant in South Yarra.

Your support for the Australian Breast Care Centre during Breast Cancer Awareness Month is an embodiment of compassion and advocacy. Let’s stand together, making a difference one film, one ticket, and one heartbeat at a time.

Thank you to our valued ambassadors:
