The Environmental Film Festival Melbourne (EFFM) is now entering into its fifth year, running from the 4th till the 12th of September. It offers a selection of feature and short documentaries, along with a plethora of guests and panels discussing an assortment of topics. Their mission statement, as taken from their website, states that:
“The Environmental Film Festival Melbourne entertains with groundbreaking films, traversing the relationship between humans and their environments, challenging the way people think about the natural world and inspiring them to discuss, explore and act on important environmental issues”.
First and foremost for both the festival and the selection of films is the power of a community drawing together to shape the world that we want. The best festivals foster a community around the ideas they present, and with a fine selection of panelists accompanying most of the screenings this is shaping up to be a very worthwhile proposition for Melbourne audiences.
