I’m very pleased to announce that our multicultural, international romantic comedy My Cornerstone (starring Miss India Australia beauty pageant-winner Zenia Starr pictured above) will complete its 2nd week of cinema screenings this evening. There have been over 150 cinema screenings Australia-wide in the first two weeks alone and the feedback we have received from audiences and film critics alike has been overwhelmingly positive. So thank you to all who attended screenings at cinemas in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Adelaide during its first week.

Due to public demand in Sydney’s Eastern suburbs we have booked the classy Ritz Cinema (Event Cinemas) at Randwick for daily screenings beginning late October (Friday 31st) until Sunday November 2nd. http://www.ritzcinema.com.au/Movie/My-Cornerstone

Meanwhile the film continues to show in selected Event Cinemas and Village Cinemas in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.

Beyond Australia, it will then release in selected markets internationally starting with India-wide cinema screenings before the end of this year.

Thank you so much for all your support.

See you at the movies!

The film’s multicultural cast includes some of the brightest up-and-coming actors from Australia and India. My Cornerstone’s lead actress, 24 year-old Indian-Australian Zenia Starr, was recently crowned Miss India Australia and was a contestant in the 2013 Miss India Worldwide beauty pageant. As a result of her role in My Cornerstone and other productions including the recent Australian indie film Backyard Ashes, Zenia is becoming a renowned name in both the Bollywood and Australasian film industries.

“Like other successful cross-cultural films such as Bride and Prejudice and Bend It Like Beckham, My Cornerstone has the potential to become a mainstream crowd-pleaser with both traditional Australian audiences and ex-pat Indian cinemagoers alike.” -Don Groves, Inside Film (IF)

The article, by IF Magazine columnist Don Groves, follows (unabridged):

My Cornerstone, an international romantic comedy filmed in Sydney, greater NSW and Mumbai, opens in cinemas in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth on October 9.

Scripted by James Morcan, the plot covers contemporary issues in both Australian society and Indian communities in a fun and sexy fashion.

Like other successful cross-cultural films such as Bride and Prejudice and Bend It Like Beckham, we believe My Cornerstone has the potential to become a mainstream crowd-pleaser with both traditional Australian audiences and ex-pat Indian cinemagoers alike.

Later this year the film will screen in cinemas in various countries worldwide, followed by an eventual international DVD release.

The director and producer, Indian-Australian filmmaker Stanley Joseph of World Pictures Australia PTY Ltd, is a well-known musician and Bollywood composer turned director who lives in Sydney.

Stanley

The storyline reflects some of his own experiences as an Indian migrant in Australia. My Cornerstone is Stanley’s second feature film to date (with a third feature currently in post-production and due for release in 2015).

The film’s multicultural cast includes some of the brightest up-and-coming actors from Australia and India. My Cornerstone’s lead actress, 24 year-old Indian-Australian Zenia Starr, was recently crowned Miss India Australia and was a contestant in the 2013 Miss India Worldwide beauty pageant.

Our soon to be released Indian-Australian feature film MY CORNERSTONE – which will screen in cinemas in Australia, Fiji, New Zealand and Singapore in the coming months – recently featured in the Inside Film (IF) Magazine, the Down Under film industry chronicle.

MY CORNERSTONE poster

 

The article, by IF Magazine columnist Don Groves, follows (unabridged):

Producer-director Stanley Joseph is aiming to bridge the cultural gap between India and Australia by making mainstream films shot in both countries.

The Indian-born founder of World Pictures Australia is preparing to launch My Cornerstone, a romantic comedy which explores multiculturalism and spiritual faith, in Australia in late September.

It stars 24 year-old Indian-Australian Zenia Starr as an Indian nurse who moves to Sydney where she’s hired to care for the ailing matriarch of a wealthy Indian-Australian family.

New Zealand-born, Sydney-based writer-actor James Morcan, who wrote the screenplay based on Joseph’s story, plays an enigmatic neighbour named Chris who enters her life. The film was shot in Mumbai and Sydney, with 90% of the dialogue in English, the rest in Hindi.

Reel to Deal Pictures, a newly-formed New Zealand-based distributor, will launch the film on 16-18 screens in Australia, Joseph tells IF.

Via sales agents the film will be released theatrically in Fiji and Singapore but Joseph, who migrated to Australia 17 year ago, plans to bypass cinemas in India and go straight to DVD, due to piracy and traffic logjams which make getting to cinemas a challenge in the big cities.

Seeking distribution in the US, he’s had talks with a US cinema chain and an online company.

Morcan says, “My Cornerstone is the first Australian-Indian crossover film. Our storyline reflects many of Stanley’s own experiences as an Indian migrant in Australia.”

Joseph’s follow-up is Love You Krishna, a romantic comedy drama now in post-production. Scripted by Morcan, again based on Joseph’s story, the plot follows the Chopras, a wealthy Indian-Australian family who are subtly influenced by a mysterious stranger’s visits to their Sydney mansion.

Starr, who also appeared in Mark Grentell’s Backyard Ashes, and Morcan are among the cast, and there is a similar split between English and Hindi.

Both films were financed by an Indian investor and were shot back-to-back in an economical 37 days. Joseph envisions a mid-2015 release for Love You Krishna.

His first film, actioner Newton’s 3rd Law, was released in 2011.
