Ticket sales to support the WIRES bushfire appeal.
Australian animation studio Like A Photon Creative in conjunction with Universal Content Group will hold a special charity screening of the highly anticipated Australian animated film The Wishmas Tree on Saturday 29thFebruary at the Ritz Cinemas in Randwick.
All proceeds will directly benefit WIRES in support of their bushfire appeal. WIRES officials will be giving a special pre-screening address about the importance of preserving our native species for future generations and an update on their bushfire relief initiatives.
The Wishmas Tree is the first instalment in The Tales of Sanctuary City franchise. Featuring a stellar voice cast including award-winning Australian actress Miranda Tapsell (Top End Wedding, Sapphires, Love Child), international comedian Ross Noble (Freewheeling, Mindblender) and Brisbane’s Kate Murphy (Space Chickens in Space, Shopkins Wild), The Wishmas Treeis a fun, original ‘Aussie-mation’ that is set to become a family household name.
Film creators and Like A Photon Co-CEOs Kristen Souvlis and Nadine Bates said: “Our film’s hero characters are Australian native wildlife so it only makes sense that we give back and support fellow Australian wildlife, many of which have endured some of the most catastrophic conditions and loss to their habitats on record.”
About The Wishmas Tree
The highly anticipated all new Australian animated film, The Wishmas Tree tells the story of a young possum’s misguided wish for a ‘white Wishmas’ as she not only freezes her entire hometown of Sanctuary City, but also threatens the lives of all who live there. Before the magical Wishmas Tree dies, she must undertake a perilous journey into The Wild; battling self-doubt, ghostly predators and ultimately, extinction itself, to reverse the damage she has caused and save her city!
The Wishmas Tree is produced by Brisbane animation studio Like A Photon Creative which has three movies in production under The Tales of Sanctuary City franchise – The Wishmas Tree, Combat Wombat and Daisy Quokka.
