Motorkite Dreaming, the first feature from new Australian distribution company, Screen Impact, is making its debut at Hot Docs at Palace Cinemas this week. Directed by Charlie Hill-Smith, the film tells the story of two microlight enthusiasts who, with their fiances, undertake to fly some 4000 kilometres across Australia in that are essentially hang gliders powered by lawn mower engines. Their trip takes them through 20 distinct Aboriginal language regions.

Screen Impact has taken a multiple-pronged approach to distributing the film.  Following Hot Docs, the film will screen in selected theatres nationally in August, then a five-part television series will screen on SBS2 and NITV. Meanwhile, Red Bull Media will handle international screenings. Both the film and resultant TV series will also be available digitally.
