EFFA '17

12 - 17 Oct 2017


"2017 has been a unifying year. Across the world people have spoken out for environmental protection and the upholding of global climate change agreements. Bold environmental films have hit screens, from Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Sequel, to the stunning Chasing Coral, through to powerful local documentaries like Blue and Guarding the Galilee.


Communities are united and emboldened by the challenges we all face, and are ever creative in the ways they express this on and off-screen. At EFFA we are proud to bring you this, through unique and diverse perspectives from the planet’s most talented and socially conscious filmmakers. This year we’re reeling out a global smorgasbord of environmental filmmaking, with feature films from over a dozen countries. An Australian short film will prelude each feature length film (consider it the organic cherry-on-top of your movie night!), while our international shorts package traverses the shocking, inspiring and somewhat hilarious! We are becoming more impact focused, and will extend our commitment to the community through programs beyond the cinema.


From our Community Storytelling Project supported by Bank Australia, to our Reel Impact Filmmakers Industry Day – we will strive to strengthen relationships between filmmakers, environmental organisations and audiences. It is my pleasure to welcome you to EFFA 2017 and introduce an incredible collection of films and events. Join us this October at ACMI, the Planetarium and RMIT for an inspiring festival that strikes a poignant balance between motivating and alarming, challenging and inspiring, groundbreaking and all-too-real."
