AUDIENCES cannot get enough of film The Decadent and Depraved, billed as the state’s biggest independent feature film.

The gritty western filmed in several locations throughout WA had its premiere in December , selling out three screens at Grand Cinemas Warwick and leaving people on a waiting list.

Those who missed out will have another chance to see it on the big screen with an encore session at Event Cinemas Whitford on June 17.

Director Jordon Prince-Wright (22) said Perth won’t be the only location for an encore screening.

“Due to the long waiting list for the premier, we have been lucky enough through negotiations to do encore screenings and continue with our original plan of revisit the shires and remote communities involved in the production before the films overseas release,” he said.

He said it was a tough shoot at times, filming in below zero temperatures with a rain machine, but he had plans for a “massive” second film.

Prince-Wright said the budget for the opening couple of scenes of his next film is the entire budget of this western.
