‘Volcano Man’ (Trailer)

Feature doc Volcano Man will screen in Palace Cinemas in major cities across the country next month to drive awareness and fundraising for men’s mental health in partnership with Movember.

Volcano Man, the feature debut of director James Crawley, premiered at the 2022 Melbourne International Film Festival where it received third in the Audience Awards.

The film, produced by Pivot Studios and GoodThing Productions, documents James’ complex relationship with his eccentric father Richard Crawley, as they grapple with life and loss, using the language of film to communicate and bring them closer together.

Tim Russell and Rhian Skirving produce with executive producers Nick Batzias and VIrigin

Palace Cinemas will donate $5 from every Volcano Man ticket sale to Movember and select screenings will feature Q&As with the filmmakers hosted by Movember ambassadors.
