An inspiring line-up of world-changing documentaries

The Transitions Film Festival returns to Brisbane this March 23rd with another enthralling line-up of world-changing films.

Returning for the seventh time in Melbourne, and the second time in Brisbane, the Festival showcases local and international documentaries aimed at empowering audiences to build a better world.

The films in this year's Brisbane program cover a diverse range of themes including, the future of food, ocean and water health, climate activism and the rise of 'consciousness hacking' in the age of artificial intelligence.

Food Fighter
Food Fighter

FOOD FIGHTER (Queensland premiere)

Friday, March 23 @ 6:30 pm

OzHarvest CEO Ronni Kahn has enough passion and drive to move mountains – but can she reduce the exorbitant pile of food Australians waste each year? Food Fighter follows Ronni's crusade as she partners with the United Nations, rubs shoulders with royalty and Jamie Oliver's juggernaut, rifles through dumpster bins, and holds government to account.


Saturday, March 24 @ 2:00 pm

Described by the Los Angeles Times as 'an exemplary piece of advocacy filmmaking,' and The Hollywood Reporter as 'One of the most vital docs to hit theaters in 2018,' What lies Upstream speaks truth to power and inspires us to fight for the protection the most important elements which sustain us as humans – water.


ALBATROSS (Queensland premiere)

Saturday, March 24 @ 4:00 pm

In 2009, artist Chris Jordan travelled to Midway Island and bore witness to tens of thousands of dead albatrosses lying on the ground, their stomachs filled with plastic. After 8 years of filming the life cycles of these beautiful birds, Albatross was created – a visual odyssey examining how human materiality has impacted the natural world.


UNFRACTURED (Queensland premiere)

Saturday, March 24 @ 6:30 pm

Unfractured follows biologist Sandra Steingraber as she reinvents herself as an outspoken anti-fracking activist and throws herself into an environmental war that many believe is unwinnable. Branded a "toxic avenger" by Rolling Stone, Sandra quickly emerges as one of the leaders of New York's biggest grassroots movement in decades.

Living in the Future's Past

LIVING IN THE FUTURE'S PAST (Queensland premiere)

Sunday, March 25 @ 4:00 pm

Academy Award Winner, Jeff Bridges presents a tour de force of original thinking on who we are and the environmental challenges we face. Jeff, alongside prominent scientists and authors, weaves evolution, emergence, entropy, dark ecology, and what some are calling the end of nature, into a story that helps us understand our place in the world.

SUPERSAPIENS (Queensland premiere)

Sunday, March 25 @ 6:30 pm

Featuring world's leading philosophers and academics, including: Sam Harris, Nick Bostrom, Richard Dawkins, Hugo De Garis and Ben Goertzel, SuperSapiens is a mind-boggling exploration of 'consciousness hacking' and what our collective future may look like when man merges with machine.
