A one-day cinema event celebrating Indigenous perspectives on climate, ecology, culture and custodianship.

Environmental Film Festival Australia (EFFA) presents a one-day mini-festival, showcasing Indigenous voices and sovereignty through film.

Our program pays tribute and respect to First Nations’ experiences with Land, Water, Sky and Seas. Join us for sharing, yarning and cinema responding to Climate Change and Culture, recognising ancestral knowledge and that First Nations stories are intrinsically connected to the environment and to Country.

With two shorts packages and one feature premiere, featuring films predominantly made by Indigenous creatives, these stories uphold and recognise self determination, food sovereignty, Indigenous perspectives and conservation practices.

EFFA is privileged to present a range of films through First Peoples’ eyes. The day will include an informal Talanoa, story sharing, and Ceremony, to honour the many First Nations in Naarm, Victoria at ACMI.
