The Environmental Film Festival Australia Coming Soon
As important environmental issues arise, we can act, explore, engage and inspire.
The Film Festival aims to traverse the relationship between humans and their environments, challenging the way people think about the natural world. Identifying important environmental issues encouraging individuals to become inspired to explore and act.
Consisting of a dedicated and passionate team of volunteers the not-for-profit festival (DGR charity) brings together a wide variety of experience to curate the best environmental films from around the globe, in a creative and dynamic environment.
The film screenings encourage viewers to think and feel with additional panel discussions and debates getting audiences talking and asking questions.
Their programme takes audiences on a deeper exploration of the issues, fuelling conversation about how to make the world a better place, now and into the future. EFFA brings business people, scientists, government, academics, creatives, and environmentalists together for expert panel discussions that get viewers actively involved.
And it’s not just talk. Attendees are given clear directions for action. We present and promote sustainable solutions provided by our partner organisations.
The Environmental Film Festival Australia began in 2010 (As EFF Melbourne) with a vision to inform, engage and inspire on the environmental issues that affect us today and has since grown into one of Melbourne’s most notable ‘green’ events, weaving its way into the colourful tapestry that is Melbourne’s arts and cultural life. With this growing success, and a willing team, the festival has expanded to spread the power of environmental films to more people, across more cities.
Films are featured from the world’s most talented and socially-cons ious filmmakers. Our program delivers information, inspiration and – above all – a sense of hope for the future.
We embrace diversity and champion local, minority and creative voices. Issues and solutions are linked to the audience’s values, maximising relevance and motivating them to take action. Topics explored include: sustainability, habitats, geography, urban life, the awe of beautiful places, and the connections and challenges between people and place.
