‘Don’t Tell’ Wins Audience Award at Newport Beach Film Festival

This years Newport Beach Film Festival celebrated outstanding contribution to global cinema at a special event during the 18th annual Festival at the Balboa Bay Resort on April 22nd 2017. The Festival’s selection committee reviewed more than 2,500 films. The Festival screened over 350 films, representing 50 countries. The films competed for Jury, Festival Honours and Audience Awards.

‘Don’t Tell’ starring Linsten Morris Legend Jack Thompson, is the story about a sexual-abuse victim betrayed by the Anglican church and has been awarded 2017 Best Feature Film in the Audience Award category. Jack recently spoke with The Daily Telegraph on whether he believes films such as ‘Don’t Tell’ can be a medium for social change/social justice saying:

“I really believe they can. The thing about this film is that it’s a true story. It’s not over-dramatised. It brings a lot of focus to a social problem that is endemic, really, as we now see all over the world, regardless of the religion associated with the school, and regardless of whether it’s boys or girls. In this case, the law and justice end up being the same thing. You feel like cheering at the end. It’s not just a film about sex abuse, it’s a film about a win – for that young girl and the community.”

Great Job Jack and Congratulations from everyone here at Linsten Morris Management!

Don’t Tell is in cinemas nationwide on May 18.
