This will be the Australian Premiere for the film which released in New Zealand cinemas on December 7, 2014. The Byron Bay International Film Festival is hosted from March 6 – March 15 and is Australia’s largest regional film festival.

Sunday is a story about a couple who are having a baby, but are no longer together. After years of history and months of separation Charlie (Dustin Clare, McLeod’s Daughters, Spartacus, Anzac Girls) and Eve (Camille Keenan, Packed To The Rafters, Satisfaction, 30 Days of Night) have 24 hours to find out whether they have a future together. Set in Christchurch, New Zealand one year after the earthquakes that devastated the city, Sunday is a story like the city, one of past devastation and a chance at rebuilding.

Sunday Actor, Writer and Producer Dustin Clare comments, “It’s wonderful to be bringing ‘Sunday’ to our Australian audience and at a festival that is very close to my heart, as the Northern Rivers region is where I grew up. We have had such a positive response to ‘Sunday’ from our NZ audience and critics, and we hope to challenge our Australian audience in the same way with this love story.”

To celebrate Valentine’s Day Sunday is in 30+ NZ cinemas for special screenings, offering 2 admits for the price of 1 over the Valentine’s Day weekend.
