Get your popcorn ready, the Transitions Film Festival is returning to Adelaide from May 18 until May 27 at the Mercury and Gawler Cinemas. The festival will showcase local and international documentaries aimed at inspiring audiences to make the world a better place. This year’s line-up is said to be both enthralling and exciting, with documentaries featuring a range of themes including social justice, ocean health, big data, the future of food, online privacy, animal welfare, climate change, renewable energy, game changing technologies and artificial intelligence.
The festival will feature visionary films including Food Fighter, Guardians of the Earth and Free Lunch Society, while also welcoming inspirational guest speakers. Graham Brookman from The Food Forest will be speaking at Evolution of Organic, plus Singer-Songwriter Nancy Bates will speak at Living in the Future’s Past.
“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” – Transitions Film Festival.
