EFFA '16

29 Sep - 29 Oct 2021

"We are on the edge of change, at the precipice of opportunity where we can learn from and take responsibility for our past and use this wisdom to change the course of our future.

In Australia, we have seen positive change - fervent individuals, communities and businesses are taking action. Since we last met, we’ve seen globally historical moments in environmental decision making. But challenges amass and the future of planet Earth must remain in all of our focus and the subject of our enquiries, our activism and our aspirations.

At the Environmental Film Festival Australia we do just that every day. Earth’s sustainable future drives our passion as we rummage through cinema’s best and brightest to bring stories about the world around us to Australian screens and ask audiences to consider how future generations will come to know and care for this wondrous blue dot. This year EFFA is back bigger than ever before, bringing the world’s best and most poignant environmental cinema to you. EFFA is more than a film festival - it is a catalyst for positive and sustainable change. This season, our seventh, sees us breaking new ground once more, taking to screens in Melbourne, Adelaide, Sydney, Brisbane, Canberra, Hobart and Launceston.

We are matching big ideas, with big conversations...we are uncovering the truth, venturing into the unknown, inspiring collective action, challenging age-old wisdom, sharing solutions, highlighting the power of our own choices, celebrating the world around us, and yes... eating bugs!

I am privileged to be introducing to you a program of films, events and conversations that has been masterfully put together by our all-volunteer Festival Team. EFFA’s program demonstrates the diversity of voices in the environmental movement and the many ways we can tell stories that inspire us to be informed and do more for the places we love. It is with great enthusiasm that I welcome you to EFFA 2016.

Please join us this September and October and tell the world that you give a flick!"

Chris Gerbing | Festival Director
