The Transitions Film Festival is a visionary festival dedicated to showcasing inspirational documentaries about the social and technological innovations, revolutionary ideas and trail-blazing changemakers that are leading the way to a better world.
Welcome to Transitions Film Festival 2016!
The fifth annual Transitions Film Festival returns to Cinema Nova, Melbourne this February and Mercury Cinema, Adelaide in May with an inspirational line up of game-changing documentaries!
The films in this year’s festival emphasise the themes of discovery, purpose, innovation, impact and the #ideasbloom that will shape the future of our society and civilisation.
This year’s program covers an enormous spectrum of topics including, activist grandmas, global tax avoidance, the history of climate change, international energy transitions, the future of the global food system, the architecture of happiness and pathways out of poverty.
They paint a portrait of a world that is waking up and rising to the challenges of global civilization at an unprecedented speed. They show that we don’t need revolutionary inventions or breakthrough technologies to create a better world. If we ask good questions and recalibrate our vision in the right way, we can create remarkable change.
We can transition from coal to renewables and avert the worst threats of climate change, we can shift from a global economy that is systemically designed to implode, to a model that works for the majority of people. We can build houses and cities that make us happy, grow food that nourishes and vitalizes us. We can create impact with businesses that profit from purpose,and solve the problem of global poverty with innovative models of empowerment and enterprise.
We don’t just need a boom of new ideas, we need the right ideas to self-fertilize and cross-pollinate. In a world of finite time and infinite distractions, we must know how to focus, what to care about and what to share.
The films in this year’s program are the seeds to a new world.
