The Show Must Go on

Australia | Documentary

While ‘show business’ is often seen as glamorous, fun, exciting, and well paid, the reality paints a darker picture. Recent research by Entertainment Assist shows anxiety symptoms in entertainment workers are 10 times higher, sleep disorders are 7 times higher and symptoms of depression are 5 times higher than the national average.

Join us for a screening of the director’s cut of The Show Must Go On. Following the screening, stay for a mental wellbeing event, including a panel moderated by producer Sue Maslin and including Ben Steel (writer/director) along with mental health experts and wellness advocates. The panel will discuss the issues raised in the film, what action the broader industry can take, as well as provide tools and resources to support individuals. A must see for all those working in the arts and entertainment industry.
