Rosemary Myers' coming-of-age drama Girl Asleep will get an Australian theatrical run via Umbrella Entertainment beginning September 8.
Starring Bethany Whitmore and Harrison Feldman, Girl Asleep debuted at the Adelaide Film Festival last year, where it was the fastest selling title in AFF history and won the Best Feature People Choice's Award.
The film has since screened to festival audiences in Berlin, Stockholm, Buenos Aires, Jeonju, Bogota, New York City, and Seattle, where it received the Grand Jury Prize at the Seattle International Film Festival.
Girl Asleep sold out the Sydney Film Festival, and will also screen at MIFF.
