Tiny house documentary launches this month

We’ve promoted small houses since the early days of Sanctuary magazine so we’re very excited to announce the launch of a tiny houses documentary, with tickets still available to the premiere in Melbourne on March 26.

Small is Beautiful: A Tiny House Documentary explores the tiny house movement that has grown out of the USA. With a focus on smaller spaces and simplified living, the movement is a response to the housing affordability crisis, which impacts numerous people in the developed world today.

Originally inspired to build one for himself, director Jeremy Beasley was fascinated to learn what tiny house living was really like, which led him to create a feature length documentary about the movement instead. The film follows four characters in Portland, Oregon, each of whom are at various stages of building and living in their own tiny homes.

Ultimately this story proves that it’s not what’s inside the walls of a tiny house that counts, but rather it is the strong community of like minded people who support each other as they dare to be different.

Sanctuary will be at the world premiere on Thursday, March 26 as a proud advocate of small sustainable living and with discounted magazines and subscriptions. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Jeremy Beasley and producer Chris Kamen, as well as an opportunity to look through and explore a tiny house on display. Food and drink will be available for purchase throughout the screening and after party, which will feature DJ Richie1250 from PBS Radio.

When: Thursday, March 26. Doors open at 6pm with food and drink available to purchase. Screening commences at 8pm. There will be additional screenings on March 27, 28 and 29. Visit the Small is Beautiful website for screening times and tickets.

Where: Monster & Bear, 13 Leslie Street, Brunswick VIC 3056. Ride your bike to the premiere and present your helmet to receive a free Bicycle Beer from Temple Brewery!

Cost: Tickets available now from smallbeautifulmovie.com at a cost of $25 for adults, $20 for concession (includes booking fee).
