The most anticipated film release in Warrnambool’s history is almost upon us.

Oddball, starring Shane Jacobson, will premiere in Warrnambool on September 13.

The film recounts the true story of a local chicken farmer, Swampy Marsh, and his suggestion that Maremma guardian dogs could be used to protect the penguins on Middle Island.

In a world-first, Maremma dogs were trained and placed on Middle Island to protect the penguins from foxes during the breeding season.

The project has been a huge success, with no evidence of fox attacks since the beginning of the project and a steady increase in penguin colony size.

Keen to attend the premiere? Members of the Oddball Club will have access to exclusive pre-sale tickets. The good news is, it’s not too late to join the club!

The club will also keep you in the loop with the latest new on the vital conservation project on which the film is based.
