FREE For Students! See Damon Gameau’s ‘2040’ on Opening Weekend

Are you a student ready to make a change for the better? If the recent climate action protests around the country have got you riled up and ready for action, check out Damon Gameau’s new film 2040 to see strategies for improving our world and reducing the carbon in our atmosphere.

Madman Entertainment and Palace Cinemas have partnered up to give school-aged students FREE admission to see 2040 on opening weekend at Palace Cinema locations around the country! 

Damon Gameau (creator of That Sugar Film) is back with his inspiring film 2040, which implores us to think positively about solutions to climate change using technologies already available to us. 2040 is a refreshing take on a serious topic. What will your 2040 look like? You can go to to find out how you can be a part of the regeneration!

The initiative coincides with the global advent of student-led climate change action and the fact that the film has resonated strongly with youth audiences at national Q&A preview screenings hosted by Gameau and other experts.

“We made this film to show a hopeful view of the future, and nobody can impact that more than the youth of today,” says Gameau, “we are getting passionate responses and great insights from students after early preview screenings, so we are thrilled to be working with Palace to make sure as many young people as possible can see the film and be inspired to join the regeneration.”

“From solar panels to recycling programs, Palace Cinemas have long been committed to incorporating sustainable practices and we are thrilled to be able to support the next-generation of leaders and cinema-goers in making a positive change,” says Palace Cinemas’ CEO Benjamin Zeccola.

The offer extends to all sessions of 2040 at Palace Cinemas on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th May, to students 18 years and under. Click here to find out more about booking information.

2040 opens nationally in Australian cinemas on Thursday 23 May 2019.
