The Melbourne Documentary Film Festival proudly announces that A Billion Lives has accepted our invitation to host their Australian premiere in Melbourne on 10/07/2016.
Aaron Biebert, director of a Billion Lives on being a part of the inaugural Melbourne Documentary Film Festival, “The UN estimates that a billion people will die this century from smoking and the corruption makes me sick. In Australia, they banned safer alternatives to cigarettes that people worldwide are using to quit. It’s shocking. Nobody knows about it. So we made a documentary.”
Coming off the energy from our World Premiere at Doc Edge and our Remi Award in Houston, we’ve got the wind at our back and almost 40,000 people behind us. We’re very excited to have our Australian premiere at the Melbourne Documentary Film Festival and help get the word out about this deadly corruption. It’s time for truth. It’s time to end the corruption.
