Tourism Australia's business events wing is to hold an exclusive advanced screening of new Nicole Kidman film Australia at EIBTM next month.

Business Events Australia are inviting 400 buyers to watch the Baz Luhrmann epic on 3 December 2008 at Filmax Gran Vía (across from the EIBTM exhibition hall), with a welcome drinks followed by the screening.

The film will be shown in English with Spanish subtitles and the cinema will seat 400 guests. Those interested should go to www.businessevents.australia.com/3177.aspx.

"Australia launches in the UK and most European countries on 26 December so it's incredibly exciting to be able to show an advanced screening," said Tourism Australia business events manager (UK and Europe) Lene Corgan.

"The buzz surrounding the film will certainly put the destination on the business events radar and we hope this screening will inspire buyers to make Australia their next destination of choice."

Starring Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman, Australia is a romantic adventure set just before WWII in which an English aristocrat (Kidman) travels to Australia to save her remote outback station.
