ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

[ The Short Story ]

The Transitions Film Festival showcases short, feature, and VR documentaries about the social, environmental, and technological innovations that are shaping our collective future. Focusing on the mega-trends disrupting our lives and the pathways to building a better world, the festival celebrates and inspires positive change around the issues that matter most.

Transitions Film Festival is the only festival in Australia, and one of the leading festivals internationally, that explicitly focuses on the grand challenges of our time, and the solutions to those challenges.

Using the power of film and expert panel discussions, the Transitions Film Festival aims to inform, engage, and inspire audiences to create positive impact in the world. We cultivate powerful emotional experiences, stimulate important discussions, build communities and catalyse positive energy into meaningful action.
 
The Transitions Film Festival has been inspiring audiences and powering social change since 2012, hosting festivals in Melbourne, Adelaide, Sydney, Brisbane and Darwin and facilitating screenings in Alice- Springs, Hobart and across Australia.
 
 

[ The Longer Story ]

As a planetary culture, we are currently experiencing a rapid transformation of industry, technology and society beyond anything previously imaginable.

We sit at the crossroads between utopia and dystopia, facing the immense and urgent challenges of climate change, peak oil, economic collapse, resource over consumption and over population, while at the same time hovering on the precipice of an age of abundance, driven by innovations in robotics, telecommunications, scientific breakthroughs and a growing awareness of our collective predicament and fragile interconnectedness.

The challenge of our generation is to consciously guide this transformation toward a sustainable civilization.

In an era that could very well define the fate of the planet and our species, there has never been a more important and exciting time to be engaged, educated and inspired.

The Transitions Film Festival aims to inspire, inform and engage by connecting audiences to cutting-edge ideas from around the globe and the local community groups that are creating impact in Australia.

We throw a spotlight on human ingenuity, power, passion and creativity and provide a platform for local heroes to share their stories and inspire the community.
