Turn Up the Volume + Q&A

Big Screen Premiere

Tenika Smith | Australia | 2023 | Unclassified (All Ages)
TV screening


Sat 18 Mar 2023

Join us in the cinema to celebrate the world premiere of ABC ME's upcoming series Turn Up the Volume.

A group of young female and gender non-conforming teenagers at a weekly music camp decide to form a band. Desperately looking for belonging, they find that, via the transformative, uplifting power of music and friendship, they can unite together to define themselves on their own terms.

Set in the vibrant suburb of Footscray, and inspired by the documentary feature No Time for Quiet, this new series is a warm, upbeat exploration of creativity and how it can help express your individuality, find acceptance and self-worth, and celebrate diversity.

Join us in the cinema for this very special world premiere screening followed by a Q&A with key cast and crew.

Turn Up the Volume will be available to watch on ABC ME and stream on ABC iView from Fri 24 March 2023.
