EFFA '18

11 Oct - 19 Oct 2018

In cinemas, across Melbourne


"The past 12 months have awakened our collective fighting spirit emboldened by momentum on important environmental issues. As citizens globally rally around campaigns to save our precious coral reefs and bring an end to single-use plastics, we are starting to see how innovation and collaboration can be harnessed to face the pressing environmental problems of today.


With this in mind, the EFFA Team has scoured the world for environmental films that shine a light on issues and ideas that we must consider in our rapidly evolving world. From the ruinous ivory trade in Africa to the world’s largest electronic waste dump, from the unexplored Okavango Delta to the mountainous old-growth of the Philippines, this year’s festival goes further than ever before to show the power of films to inspire change. 


And never before has the evolution of environmental filmmaking been so clear as in this year’s program. We bring you films that challenge conventional thinking, share views from the other side, and perhaps most rewardingly present films that are intelligently and sensitively crafted to strike a profound chord in the hearts and minds of audiences in Melbourne and beyond.


Together we need to face the facts around challenges in our environment, and face up to a future that is created by the decisions we make today. Please join us at EFFA this October in ACMI and our new venue, Westgarth Palace Cinemas, for an absorbing and provocative festival. Let’s face the films, discuss our future, celebrate our wins, and continue the movement for change. See you at the festival."
