The Australian Women’s Weekly invests in new Helen Reddy film

Bauer Media’s The Australian Women’s Weekly has invested in upcoming Australian film about the life of singer Helen Reddy, I Am Woman.

While Bauer Media would not give Mumbrella an exact figure, the publisher said it was a “significant investment” in the production.

The investment is part of Bauer Media’s broader commitment to telling stories about Australian women.

Reddy, an Australian singer, was an icon of the 1970’s feminist movement. The new film, which is currently in production, is being produced by Goalpost Pictures’ founding partner, Rosemary Blight, and directed by Unjoo Moon.

Reddy will be played by Tilda Cobham Hervey. As part of the investment, the magazine will support the film and its launch – which is expected to take place between 2019-2020, and will produce content around the film, including a feature on Reddy and behind the scenes interviews with the ‘I Am Woman’s’ cast and crew.

The Weekly will be supporting the film and its launch, due in 2019/2020, with specially produced content across all its platforms, including a full feature on Reddy and behind the scenes interviews with ‘I Am Woman’ cast and crew.

Nicole Byers, editor-in-chief of The Australian Women’s Weekly said Reddy’s story is inspirational.

“The Weekly has been telling stories of iconic Australian women for more than 80 years and we’re delighted to be supporting the film production of ‘I Am Woman’ for people here and around the world to learn more about the achievements of this remarkable and hugely influential woman,” Byers said.
