Environmental Film Festival Australia, Australian Environments on Screen, Seed and ACMI are thrilled to invite you to this special double-feature presentation.

Highlighting the resilience of community and the importance of our river and water systems, RIVERTREE and Water Is Life both offer unique perspectives on the fight to protect home.

Water is Life

Seed, Australia, 2018

Aboriginal communities fight against fracking plans in the NT, learning from First Nations brothers and sisters in the US who are suffering the effects of greedy gas companies.


Matty Hannon & Gary Parker, Australia, 2023

When lifelong mates Hayley Talbot and Dan Ross set off on a long-distance paddle from the headwaters of the Clarence River to the surf, they find astonishing landscapes, eccentric locals and epic river time adventures. They also discovered some big bad plans to mine the hills behind their home. A story of friendship, community and the fight to save the mighty Clarence River (Biirrinba, Boorimbah), set on Bundjalung, Gumbaynggirr and Yaegl Country and narrated by Aunty Lenore.

Screening followed by an 'In Conversation' with representatives from both films.
