ACH Group Exchange Manager Fiona Telford-Sharp says ACH Group is thrilled to support the program, which is expected to reach 15,000 viewers this year.

“We enjoyed a fruitful relationship with the MRC and Mercury Cinema during our Good Lives on Film projects, where people in their 60s, 70s, 80s learned film-making skills, and made short films sharing their vision of what makes a good life,” she says.

“We look forward to an exciting year of film and friendship.”

Media Resource Centre (MRC) Chairperson Tony Keenan says the new partnership is a great fit for the MRC.

“ACH Group is committed to innovating and delivering a program focused on supporting Good Lives for Older People,” he says.

“Since 2007 the MRC has sought to improve the quality of life of older South Australians by building a new community for the digital age.

"We not only show great films, we build community with our engaging program ranging from making short films with seniors to a wide range of talks, trading tables and occasional choirs.

“Our 300 percent audience growth is the result of putting community back into watching films.”
