You're invited to The Association
The Association is a short feature film created and performed by Melbourne based acting ensemble, Girls Act Good. The film will premiere at Lido Cinemas in Hawthorn on 25th July at 7.30pm.

The film revolves around the new girl in town, Joanne, and a mysterious invitation to join the local women's community, The Association.

Invited by her new boss, Audrey, curiosity gets the better of Joanne and she attends a gathering of The Association. Despite her initial unease, the group quickly shifts from bizarre to mundane as they begin discussing tea, recipes and run a jam tasting.

As the night goes on, things get really weird and Joanne realises that these women are using their skills to 'improve' lives. She discovers that she holds the key to bringing their greatest project to life, whatever the cost.

The Association was created by Girls Act Good in 2017 and is the group's first short feature. It also marks director Lee McClenaghan's first film, and follows on from a successful sell-out live immersive theatre event by the same name.

A completely independent group of women, Girls Act Good (or GAG as they are often called) was created by Jennifer Monk with the aim of telling female stories and creating opportunities for women within the arts industry to work on challenging and engaging projects.

The Association short feature film features performances by Jennifer Monk, Kelley Kerr-Young, Constance Washington, Lisa Dallinger, Laila Thaker, Shanon Kulupach and Perri Cummings.

The event at Lido Cinemas on the 25th July will kick off with a Q&A with Girls Act Good about the film as well as a screening of Connie Chen's award-winning film, Bloomers.
