On the road to Canberra!
Editor Sioux Currie and Director Suzi Taylor are super-excited to be taking 'Love in full colour' to the Canberra International Film Festival this week. It's screening alongside 'Enter the Faun' on November 11 and again - with a Q and A - on November 14. Click here for details!
Thank you for the Kickstarter LOVE!
Thank you! To the one who gave $1 and to the one who gave 3,000 ... and to all the wonderful ones in between. We successfully raised $17,420 from our Kickstarter campaign - $2,420 over our target. These funds will go towards our final post-production of the film.
Thanks also to those who have been posting, tweeting and emailing the link to the trailer through your networks….it's really working! Friends, family, former teachers, colleagues and big-hearted strangers, near and far - thank you a thousand times over.
We are so excited about completing this film.
Earlier this week, Steph, Maddy and I were invited to the Joy FM radio studios in Melbourne, with presenters Clayton and Michelle, to participate in an hour-long interview on their'Stand up Straight' show. (After which we installed ourselves in the steamy dumpling restaurant across the road to continue the conversation about teenagers, schools and curriculum reform. Somewhere in there, Clayton even taught us about how Szechuan pepper numbs your tongue and lets you eat more chilli ... and we nearly burnt our faces off with dumplings that contain Actual Soup inside. So many revelations in the one evening!)
You can listen to the interview here and while you're on the Joy page, have a listen to an interview from a few weeks earlier that gave me goosebumps (click here for that one). It features three very different teachers talking about how they promote inclusivity and diversity in their classrooms.
Mel reveals how she accidentally got outed as a teacher at her school - and how as a result of that, she ended up becoming a mentor for LGBTI students. Kylie talks about mothering a Grade 4 transgender child ("Just let her know she's loved!") and primary school teacher Clayton makes the case for starting the conversation about sexuality and gender diversity at an early age.
