Australians are reputed to have the highest rates of cannabis use in the world, yet the local culture surrounding the use of the plant - as uniquely Aussie as it is illegal - remains untold.

Marijuana Australiana is a feature documentary about Australia's evolving relationship with cannabis. Told through the eyes of larrikin characters, academics, smokers and patients, the film is an often humourous exploration of Australian cannabis culture and issues surrounding prohibition, law enforcement, mental health and harm minimisation.


WHAT’S THE STATUS OF THE FILM?
We've been working on the film for a couple of years and are nearing the end of the production phase. After several successful trips to Nimbin and surrounding areas, Canberra, Melbourne, Brisbane, the Gold Coast and lots of shooting around Sydney, we are nearly ready to edit...

But now we need your help to complete the film.



HOW CROWDFUNDING WORKS
Filmmaking is expensive, but rather than going for large grants from a few sources, the aim of crowdfunding is to attract lots of smaller donations from people - like you - who believe in the project. Even the smallest donations add up and help in taking the project over the line.

Meeting the film's funding goal of $25,000 is crucial. If this target is not reached, the project receives no funds at all.

Funds from this campaign will be used for travelling to our final shoots, transcription, editing, colour grading, audio mixing, licensing, DVD production and marketing. Marijuana Australiana has been privately funded to this point and reaching our Pozible target will result in the strongest possible film, finished in the shortest amount of time.

REWARDS In addition to that feel-good feeling you get from supporting a worthy project, there's various rewards to be had for showing your financial support.
For $25 you'll receive a digital download of the completed film. For $50 you'll also get a copy on DVD or Blu-Ray. (full rewards list is to the right, fine print below)

If you can't help financially (though every bit really does help, even $5), you can still play an important role by letting people know about the film and this Pozible campaign...
