A screening of the Australian movie Force of Nature, that features Victorian emergency services, will be held at the Cameo Cinema in Belgrave in an effort raise funds for the CFA.
The movie, set to premiere in early February, is based on Australian author Jane Harper’s second book, will also be screened at the Lorne Theatre.
CFA Chief Officer Jason Heffernan said the movie helped to highlight the importance of emergency services and was a great opportunity to raise funds for the CFA.
“Our volunteers work tirelessly every year to help protect and support their communities and events like these are a great way of highlighting the work CFA does,” Mr Heffernan said.
The locations were chosen because the movie Force of Nature was filmed in Victoria around the Lorne and Belgrave areas.
Tickets to the fundraiser are $20 each plus the booking fee and all funds will go toward the CFA Public Donations Fund.
The CFA Public Donations Fund is administered by the CFA board and all donations go directly towards supporting the volunteers, including volunteer development and equipment.
