The Transitions Film Festival is a 'visionary program dedicated to emphasising the complex challenges, cutting-edge ideas, creative innovations, and mega-trends that are redefining what it means to be human.' This year, Adelaide launches the fifth year of the festival from May 20th to 29th.
As a concept, the Transitions Film Festival spotlights how we as a global culture are currently experiencing rapid transformation and growth in areas of industry, technology, and society. With the increase of mass consumption, overpopulation, economic collapse and environmental destruction, combined with the advancement of technology and science, we need to rethink our approach to a sustainable future.
Every year the festival aims to inspire, inform, and engage audiences to create a dynamic impact and generate new ideas and solutions.
This year's festival showcases solution-orientated films that depict the world's response to the acceleration of global civilisation. Facilitated by creative, academic, governmental, community, and business leaders, these films promote the resolution of global issues without the use of inventions and technologies, but rather sustainable solutions.
The inspirational films highlight ideas and issues regarding renewable energy, producing and distributing nourishing food in a way that is economically and ecologically conscientious, while reducing the amount of food waste we produce, mass extinction, environmental destruction, and creating a responsible economy.
Films are being screened almost every night, at three venues: The Mercury Cinema, Victoria Square/Tarndanyangga, and Gawler Cinemas. Tickets per film are between $11 to $17 with festival passes available for $110. Discounts apply for concession and pension cards.
Where: Mercury Cinema - 13 Morphett St. Adelaide.
Victoria Square/Tarndanyangga - Grote St. Adelaide.
Gawler Cinemas - 11 Murray St. Gawler, SA.
