Looking for Grace was the first film by a female Australian director to screen in competition at the 2015 Venice Film Festival in fifteen years. The film, written and directed by Sue Brooks, had its World Premiere in the key section of Venice. It also screened at the Toronto International Film Festival. Now, it has had its Melbourne Premiere.

Writer/Director Sue Brooks and Australia's International actress Radha Mitchell were joined on the Red Carpet by fellow cast members Odessa Young, Terry Norris and Kenya Pearson. Sue and Radha will also be in attendance at the Western Australian Premiere of Looking For Grace at Luna Leederville Cinema on Tuesday December 1.

Premiere screenings in Sydney, Canberra and Brisbane will take place in January 2016, along with a national schedule of advance screenings which will allow audiences an opportunity to meet the filmmaker and cast, before the film releases in cinemas on Australia Day, January 26 2016.
