BLUSSH Romance Festival Director, Sue-Anne Chapman said, “More romance films are being made, and romance books being written, in Brisbane than anywhere else in Australia.

Filmed entirely on location in Brisbane, including around South/City/SQ, and produced by the kings and queens of romance, Jaggi Entertainment, One Perfect Match follows matchmaker Lucy Marks as she juggles her work and personal life. When she meets a handsome businessman, she immediately feels a spark, but that spark is ruined when she learns he is her newest client.

Jo-Anne Brechin, director, One Perfect Match said “I am beyond thrilled that BLUSSH Romance Festival has selected One perfect Match to screen at their Opening Gala Night, right here in Brisbane where the film was made. One Perfect Match stars a stellar cast and was crafted by a gorgeous group of local people. Made by lovers of love for lovers of love, it’s an honour to have One Perfect Match kick-start BLUSSH and help romance bloom/blossom in Brisbane.

Festival Co-Director and film producer, Kylie Pascoe added, “Brisbane is home to many romance filmmakers and writers, and we are so proud and excited to bring these two together in a celebration of romance, literature and film. Along with our partners, BLUSSH Romance Festival will create and deliver a 4-day program that will capture your heart.”
