Visions For A Better World

The Transitions Film Festival returns to Sydney this April with another enthralling line-up of cutting-edge documentaries about the existential challenges, mega-trends, game-changing technologies and creative visions that are redefining what it means to be human.

The festival focuses on sharing inspirational stories about the solutions to society's greatest challenges and showcases the local heroes and changemakers who are building a better world.

Covering a huge range of mind-expanding themes, including climate change, regenerative agriculture, artificial intelligence, innovation and youth activism, this year's festival will change the way you look at the world.

The Transitions Film Festival is dedicated to showcasing inspirational documentaries about the social and technological innovations, revolutionary ideas and trailblazing change makers that are leading the way to a better world.

 

TOUR HIGHLIGHTS

SERENGETI RULES

Academy Award-winning Passion Pictures and HHMI Tangled Bank Studios present one of the most important but untold science stories of our time—a tale with profound implications for the fate of life on our planet.

Exploring some of the most remote and spectacular places on Earth, five pioneering scientists make a surprising discovery that flips our understanding of nature on its head, and offers new hope for restoring balance in our world.

 

ACCELERATE

A collaborative effort between Emma Hudson (Director), Blair Palese (CEO of 350.org AU), and John Collee (Master and Commander, Happy Feet), Accelerate follows one of the world's most internationally recognised environmentalists, Bill McKibben, on his 2018 tour of Australia, where he passionately attempts to inspire government, business and community to accelerate action on climate change.

Followed by a panel discussion with Australia's leading environmentalists.

 

MORE HUMAN THAN HUMAN

More Human Than Human explores what it means to live in the age of intelligent machines. In this personal, playful and at times dramatic quest, the filmmaker finds out how much of his creativity and human values are at stake as he builds his own robot to replace himself as a filmmaker. Will artificial intelligence (AI), infinitely smarter, interconnected and possibly self-aware, render humanity obsolete?

 

YOUTH UNSTOPPABLE

Youth Unstoppable follows award-winning filmmaker Slater Jewell-Kemer on her 8 year documentation of the Global Youth Climate Movement.

From a wide-eyed and optimistic 15 year old, to a seasoned young adult, Slater gives us behind-the-scenes access to the leaders of tomorrow who are fighting to protect their future – a story that until now has yet to be told.

METAMORPHOSIS

A poem for the planet, Nova Ami and Velcrow Ripper's (Occupy Love) beautiful film takes the pulse of our Earth and bears witness to a moment of profound change: the loss of one world, and the birth of another. Through a tidal flow of stunning images, Metamorphosis carves a path from the present to the future, and offers a bold new vision for humanity and the world.

 

Featuring a stellar line-up of powerful films and inspirational guest speakers, the Transitions Film Festival runs from the 1st until the 4th of April at Dendy Cinemas Newtown.
