In 2020, Transitions Film Festival heads south for the first time for a night of impact hosted by the City of Port Phillip.

The night features impact shorts & the Sundance smash hit Anote's Ark, followed by a podcasted discussion hosted by Climactic Radio.

Join us south of the river, get inspired, and learn how you can be part of the climate conversation and action.

About the Films:
Anote's Ark takes an up-close and personal view of the crisis faced by the low-lying atoll nation of Kiribati. Set against the backdrop of international climate negotiations and the fight to recognize climate displacement as an urgent human rights issue. How does one build a metaphorical ark to save an entire nation?

Three Seconds is a short motivational piece presented by Connect4Climate and partners to get younger and older generations alike to stand up for trees and a clean future. This spoken word piece by artist Prince Ea was designed to put into perspective our existence on earth’s timeline and to excite viewers for the fight against the status quo that too often disregards Mother Nature.

HOME FRONT: Facing Australia's Climate Emergency, is an award winning short film that delivers a disruptive reality check to the current climate change discourse, political messaging, and media coverage. The film reveals the untold story of the climate emergency and the existential threat that global warming now poses to human society.

Symmetry is a short conceptual film about how we as humans have recreated jungles in our cities and how it's impacting us and our earth. We are a constantly evolving culture. A culture eternally cycling, dying, and rebirthing. The cities we live in, the jobs we have shape our direction in where we go, but are we heading in the right direction?

11 years is a visual art interpretation and to raise awareness to an issue that occupies so much of my thoughts and time. We have only 11 years before the effects of climate change are irreversible and the frustration of the younger generation to be heard.
