If you live in Melbourne, there are 2 In Person Events as follows. You'll find further details via the links given.
Tue 9 Feb 8-10pm at Parkade (MPAVILION) Level 7, 34-40 Little Collins St, Melbourne (access via lifts on Mcilwraith Pl) - Interdependence. This film screens in the lead-up to TFF and is a unique film comprising 11 short movies. The key stories illustrated by the 11 internationally recognised filmmakers reflect the intertwined relationship between human society and the natural environment that are aggravated by climate change on multiple dimensions and scales. FREE event but registrations are essential to attend in person.
Tue 23 Feb 8pm at Parkade (MPAVILION) as above - World Premiere of Beyond the Burning, with Environment Victoria. Also a FREE event, but you must register here. With a run time of 25 mins, through intimate personal stories, this event explores the terrible toll of this tragedy of devastating bushfires, the underlying causes of climate change and destructive logging, and two inspiring local solutions – handing back forest management to Traditional Owners and rebuilding with renewables.
Three days into the Festival and supported by Goethe-Institut is the Australian Premiere that shows how young activities from around the globe such as Felix Finkbeiner (Plant for the Planet), Luisa Neubauer, Greta Thunberg (Fridays for Future) and Vic Barrett (Youth v. Gov) are currently challenging the status quo and pushing for social and political change. In now, the intimate stories of these inspirational young activists are intertwined with interviews with some of the world's leading experts and most iconic figures, as well as a broad showcase of real solutions to the challenges facing our planet.
It looks like our youth are taking the charge in stressing that Earth Comes First. In CitizenKid, four Canadian youth activists, Hannah Alper, Sophia Mathur, Charlene Rocha and Cooper Price set out to show how people can change the world no matter their age. Now it's up to us adults to follow suit and walk away from the Festival inspired to take part in creating the world we want to live in. With so much to choose from at the Festival, there's no doubt you'll find a film or 30 that speaks to your heart.
In a year of deep pause and great resets, Transitions Film Festival's program celebrates the things we love and inspires us to fight for the future we want. Covering a huge range of mind-expanding themes including the wonder of nature, environmental activism, social and economic justice, ethical business, and creative innovation, this year's Festival will change the way you look at the world.
Screening almost simultaneously, you'll find the National Sustainable Festival with lots of events covering lots of different campaigns, stories and movements. It goes hand and hand with TFF in that it focuses on the change-makers leading the way in the uptake of sustainable living and addressing our climate emergency.
