Here’s Your Chance to Grab Free Tickets to an Advanced Screening of ‘Flora and Son’

'Flora and Son' premiered at the famous Sundance Film Festival earlier this year

It’s on track to be one of the year’s most acclaimed releases, and ahead of its premiere on Apple TV+, you’ve got the chance to nab tickets to a preview screening of the new film Flora and Son.

Premiering at the famous Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, Flora and Son is the newest film from celebrated director John Carney (Once, Begin Again, Sing Street). 

Now, you can be among the first to experience Flora and Son, with Apple TV+ hosting a pair of free preview screenings across Sydney and Melbourne this month.

So, what’s going down?


  • A free preview of the new Apple Original film Flora and Son for you and a friend

Where and when:

  • Wednesday, 27 September at The Vanguard in Sydney from 6pm
  • Thursday, 28 September at the Northcote Social Club in Melbourne from 6pm

What’s on the menu:

  • Free beverages and canapés from the venue’s kitchen


  • RSVP via Humanitix to secure your spot to the Sydney event, and RSVP via Oztix for the Melbourne event.

What else:

  • Both events are restricted to those aged 18+

Hosted by Rolling Stone Australia’s Managing Editor Poppy Reid, these events are vital for any music-loving film buff, giving you the chance to rub shoulders with fellow film fanatics and music fans, and providing the unique opportunity to catch one of the year’s best films ahead of its Apple TV+ release.

Of course, if you can’t make it along to either of these events, or if you miss out on securing your spot (get in quick to avoid disappointment!), you can always catch Flora and Son when it officially releases on Apple TV+ on Friday, 29 September.

The film follows single mum Flora (Eve Hewson) who is at a loss about what to do with her rebellious teenage son, Max (Orén Kinlan). Encouraged by the police to find Max a hobby, Flora tries to occupy him with a beat-up acoustic guitar. With the help of a washed-up LA musician (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), Flora and Max discover the transformative power of music.

From the musical mind of John Carney, Flora and Son explores the bond between a mother and son on a journey toward a new harmony.

Don’t miss your chance to be one of the first in the country to catch this instant classic, with Flora And Son already on track to be remembered as one of the finest feel-good films to hit our screens in a long time.

RSVP to the Sydney event via Humanitix and the Melbourne event via Oztix to secure your spot in the crowd for these exclusive premieres.
