Special screenings of Everybody’s Oma

Everybody’s Oma, the heart-warming Australian film about Oma, the grandmother with dementia and the home videos that became a global sensation, will be having special event screenings from September 21 – World Alzheimer’s Day – to celebrate the roles of Carers within our communities.

Following a successful cinema release last month, the film returns to the big screen with select Australian cinemas around the country hosting one-off screenings where people can meet other Carers, enjoy the film and then watch a live video Q&A with the filmmakers, Jason and Megan van Genderen.

Selected for the Sydney Film Festival, Melbourne International Film Festival and Cinefest Oz, Everybody’s Oma follows the incredible story of Jason’s mother Oma.  

Jason, a filmmaker well-known for his films made on iPhones, was obsessed with making home videos about his family, and their Dutch matriarch, Oma. As the pandemic hit, and Oma’s shrinking world became even smaller, Jason and his wife Megan embraced caring for Oma’s dementia in increasingly whimsical ways, accidentally turning her into an online celebrity.

Now a heart-warming and life-affirming feature documentary, Everybody’s Oma follows Jason, Megan and their children as they navigate Oma’s failing health under the spotlight of an enthusiastic audience of well-meaning strangers.
