An inspiring line-up of world-changing documentaries

The Transitions Film Festival returns to Adelaide this May with another enthralling line-up of world-changing films. Returning for the seventh time in Melbourne, and the 5th time in Adelaide, the Festival showcases local and international documentaries aimed at inspiring and empowering audiences to build a better world.

The films in this year's Adelaide program cover a diverse range of themes including the future of food, ocean health, universal basic income, and the rise of 'consciousness hacking' in the age of artificial intelligence.

Food Fighter

The Festival opens with the South Australian premiere of Food Fighter, which follows the powerhouse founder and CEO of OzHarvest, Ronni Kahn, on her epic crusade to end food waste in Australia, and closes with internationally acclaimed artist Chris Jordan's highly anticipated debut feature, Albatross - a deeply powerful and poetic film about the crises of plastic in our oceans.


The history and future of how humanity will feed itself is also a central theme of this year's Festival. Evolution of Organic, the latest film from the makers of A Fierce Green Fire, paints an endearing portrait of the founders of the organic food movement, and Empathy follows a quirky Spanish filmmaker on his journey to question the relationship between humans and animals.

Evolution of Organic

Operation Jeedara, an Australian documentary narrated by Bob Brown, celebrates the mission of a brave crew as they set out to protect the Great Australian Bight from the destructive impacts of oil pollution, and Guardians of The Earth gives audiences an intimate glimpse behind the closed doors of the Paris Climate Agreement negotiations.

Other highlights include Living In The Future's Past, a lyrical film narrated by Academy-Award winning actor Jeff Bridges about the role of evolution and psychology in tackling climate change, Free Lunch Society, which explores the history and future of universal basic income in a post-work world, and SuperSapiens, a fascinating documentary featuring Sam Harris, Richard Dawkins, Nick Bostrom and Ben Goertzel, about the moral and ethical implications of merging man with machine.
