'It’s not over' shows the inspiring story of three courageous millennials from around the world who are living or affected by HIV/AIDS. Award winning filmmaker Andrew Jenks takes viewers on a journey across India, South Africa and the United States to experience first-hand what it’s like for the people there, to live with HIV. The result is a deeply personal and uplifting story that is rarely represented in popular culture.

Many guests and some well-known faces walked over the red carpet. Sydney MP Alex Greenwich and MP Jenny Leong opened the event and director Andrew Jenks had prepared a special personal greeting for the Australian audience.

The event was part of the NSW HIV testing week to promote the message of HIV testing. More of us need to get tested for HIV more often. HIV testing is now quick and easy.

An early HIV diagnosis enables early uptake of treatment. Research of the START study has now proven that the earlier the people start taking treatment the better are the health outcomes for patients. Treating early also reduces the risk of passing HIV on to others. If you are not sure how often you should be tested check with your doctor or sexual health clinics or NSW Sexua​l Health Infolink.
