2040 Australia Documentary | 1h 23min

Logo (1).png

Award-winning director Damon Gameau embarks on a journey to explore what the future would look like by the year 2040 if we simply embraced the best solutions already available to us to improve our planet and shifted them into the mainstream.

At its heart, the 2040 campaign is all about educating people on the positive changes they can make to help reduce their impact on the environment and help create a better future. We want to share 2040 and provide resources such as our personalised action plans and educational materials for schools to help our audience make a difference, and learn about the solutions currently available to help our planet.

Flows – It’s All ConnectedDocumentary | 13min

Written and directed by Klaus Thymann

Produced by The Lighthouse Foundation
Music by Kasper Bjørke Quartet


Flows – It’s All Connected starts in the Amazon rainforest and we see how burning the forest for cattle grazing leads to soil degradation and fertilizer runoff. Combined with other nutrients entering the oceans, as well as increased climate heating of the ocean, it has created the perfect storm for a sargassum algae bloom – the biggest ever seen before in history.

The algae straddles the beaches, affecting sea turtles, and when rotting it becomes toxic as well as loaded with nutrients.

These pollutants flow back to the sea again creating a double negative feedback loop.

We cannot treat ecosystems as separate individual pieces of nature, this is why we have created the film Flows – It’s All Connected.

The Last Stand for Ancient Forests

Short Documentary Film | 3 min

Creator: Sergej Krivenko of It’s a Thing Imagery

Nationality:Canadian/Ukrainian

Age: 28 

#fairycreekblockade #oldgrowth #vancouverisland

 

Here in British Columbia, old-growth harvesting has reduced the population of these ancient forests down to under 3% from their original numbers. Harvesting old-growth is not sustainable and must cease immediately if we are to continue enjoying what little is left of them. Our government has promised to discontinue old-growth harvesting but has yet to make their move. Help share this message so we can get as much attention on this issue as possible!

Special thanks to Harley Gordon for his help with the text development, the Rainforest Flying Squad for fighting to keep these giants alive, and to the Fairy Creek Blockade for currently preventing Teal-Jones from moving to the logging site.

Young Reporters for the Environment (YRE)

is an award-winning programme coordinated by

Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE).

The programme empowers young people to take an educated stand

on environmental issues they feel strongly about and gives them a platform

to articulate these issues through the media of

writing, photography or video. 

Green Algae in Brittany, France

Produced by: Students from the Inclusive Education Unit of St Vincent College in Brest (Brittany), France

In the coastal region of Finistère in western Brittany, France, 14 students from 3rd to 6th of the localized unit for inclusive education (ULIS) of St Vincent College in Brest, France,  wondered about the presence of green algae on the beaches during the summer. Why was there so much algae ? In order to better understand this phenomenon and find solutions to reduce this nuisance, the students interviewed scientists Annie Chapelle from Ifremer, a pioneering organization in ocean science, and Gurvan Michel from the Roscoff Marine Biology Station of Frances’ National Centre for Scientific Research.

Selfish and Hotdog

Produced by: Joonsung Kim, Republic of Korea

One of the main problems that come as a product of modernity and technological development are the vices of overproduction and overconsumption. Consumers want more products and services than ever before, which increases the need to satiate the materialistic thirst of the masses. The things we own become our identity, and how we shape ourselves in modern societies. The fancy clothes and expensive cars determine your worth. The things we own, end up owning us. In the midst of all this, the profit is quite irresistible for the companies to stop and think about the harm done to the environment in the name of mass production. I thought it would be great to satirically symbolize these vices as a fish named “selfish”, visited by an alien dog who does not understand the destructive tendencies of these perpetrators of such malintentions, hence abducting all of the “selfish” as a solution for a better Earth.

Is There a Solution to Internet Pollution

Produced by: Axel Bjarkar, Hálfdán Helgi and Sölvi Bjartur, 16 years old, Iceland

The internet has changed the world. The ways we communicate, get information and consume media has drastically changed in a relatively short time. Although people all over the world use the internet on a daily basis, there is a side of the internet that is rarely mentioned and that's the environmental cost of the internet. How do we lower carbon dioxide emission from the internet? While large corporations are doing their best to lower their carbon footprints, there are things that you can do to help. Watch the video to find out more.

Brasília é o Bicho
Brasilia | Brazil

The project “Brasília é o Bicho” was born from the desire of six biologists (Fábio Hudson, Marina Carvalho, Pablo Oliveira, Pedro Guilherme, Rands Zeballos and Wesley Batista) to get to know the Cerrado biome in the capital of Brazil.

Motivated by the discovery of animals that were already believed to be extinct in the Federal District, the group did not think twice and went through the fields and forests of the capital in search of the improbable.

 

Since its foundation in 2015, the project has registered more than 30 species of terrestrial mammals, including some species never recorded before with images in the Federal District. Using the camera traps, a special type of camera, the team was able to catch images of rare animals such as the jaguar, black jaguar, giant armadillo and even the bush dog, a critically endangered species and one of the rarest mammals to be registered in the Cerrado biome.

The Serpent and
the Canoe

Brazil | 16min
by Selvagem

In 2021, six arrows will be released. Each arrow is composed of a story narrated by Ailton Krenak as part of his dream to postpone the end of the world. The Serpent and the Canoe is the first episode, the first arrow to be released.
We will travel through theories of creation of the cosmos to the emergence of life on Earth aboard contemporary scientific narratives and the memories of ancestral and traditional cultures. The main theme of this episode will be the Cosmic Serpent, present in myths of origin of different cultures, seen as the double helix of DNA, memory code present in everything living. The journey will traverse a sequence of myths of origins and scientific hypotheses about the emergence of Life.

Grounded

Partners: Climate Crisis Hub & Earth Minutes
4min | UK
Directed by Emma Askew
Produced by Earth Minutes and British Society of Soil Science

This film explores importance of soils beyond farming, from climate change, urban growing to their role within humanity. Through interviews with Wildlife presenter, Lizzie Daly, the national organic growers, Riverford Organics, and featuring cutting-edge research from

Cranfield University, we celebrate how soils effect everyone. It is crucial to make the protection and restoration of soils a global priority, and over 3000 soil scientists from around the globe will be coming together for the World Congress of Soil Science (2022), led by the British Society of Soil Science.

Grounded is presented by the Climate Crisis Hub. The CCH is a mission driven non-profit organization that hopes to connect audiences to convenient, immediate, and rewarding climate action. Through a multimedia streaming platform and a yearly film festival their organization leverages the mass appeal of film to link our audience to personalized calls to action. We all know the feeling of watching a documentary and wanting to get involved further, so the goal at the Climate Crisis Hub is to bridge that knowledge-action gap and make it easy for audiences to join in the climate movement! If you enjoy the screening, feel free to check out their platform and keep an eye out for the 2021 festival that will take place this November.

 

We must remember that soils underpin our ecosystems, our climate and our human culture... we must stay #Grounded.
