Running from mid-February to May, the festival will feature over 50 film screenings and a huge line-up of inspirational guest speakers.

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 ignite a positive cultural transformation by connecting audiences to cutting-edge ideas from around the globe and the local community groups and industry leaders that are creating impact in Australia.

We use the power of art to grow the changemaker movement and reinvigorate the everyday heroes who are already working hard to tackle our greatest challenges.
