HOST A SCREENING OF “IN TRANSITION 2.0”
On the week beginning Saturday 16th February 2013 we are encouraging communities across Australia to gather for a synchronised nationwide screening of the inspiring documentary, IN TRANSITION 2.0. The film, created by theTransition Network, documents the global Transition Town movement which inspires local grassroots solutions to the challenge of climate change, peak oil and food security in an age of ecological crisis.
We invite you to help lead the transition to a sustainable future by hosting a screening for your Transition Town, community organisation or family and friends. Screenings can be held in a local hall, house, school, cafe, bar/pub or even outdoors in a park or local garden.
Hosting a screening is a fantastic way to educate and inspire your local community or raise funds for your organisation.

IN TRANSITION 2.0 DOCUMENTARY
IN TRANSITION 2.0 is the second film produced by Transition Network, which focuses on the global movement of localised transition groups. Filmed over 7 countries, it follows the many ways that these initiatives are reviving community, challenging business and fostering resilience to the vulnerability of the global environmental and economic crisis. It is a heart warming story that shares a message of hope and more importantly action that inspires people to become involved in positive change in their own lives. The film managed to capture stories from around the world without a single flight being taken. Local camera people were enlisted to film each sequence, which makes In Transitions 2.0 one of the lowest-carbon international films ever produced. Watch the trailer http://vimeo.com/34587522
“In Transition 2.0 is an inspirational immersion in the Transition movement, gathering stories from around the world of ordinary people doing extraordinary things. You’ll hear about communities printing their own money, growing food everywhere, localising their economies and setting up community power stations. It’s an idea that has gone viral, a social experiment that is about responding to uncertain times with solutions and optimism. In a world that is awash with gloom, here is a story of hope, ingenuity and the power of growing salads in unexpected places.”
Transition Network is a global movement of local communities working towards creating healthy, resilient communities in the face of peak oil and climate change. There are over 1500 transition initiatives around the world with a total of 76 Transition groups across Australia including groups in regional areas and all capital cities. Transition Network’s role is to inspire, encourage, connect, support and train communities as they independently implement the transition model, creating initiatives that rebuild resilience and reduce CO2 emissions.
The Transitions Film Festival is Australia’s largest solutions-focused, sustainability film festival. The festival showcases powerful, inspiring and ground-breaking documentaries from around the world. Covering topics such as renewable energy, organics & permaculture, economics, design and consciousness, the festival hopes to share and inspire the change needed to create true environmental sustainability. The Transitions Film Festival is not a Transition Town and we are not associated with the Transitions Network, we just thought they were up to some pretty cool things and we want as many people as possible to know about it. We believe that the ideas presented in the In Transition 2 film represent some of the many tools available to help increase resilience and combat sustainability challenges, particularly peak oil. We encourage you to pollinate your networks with these powerful examples of community action.
The Sustainable Living Festival raises awareness and provides tools for change by showcasing leading solutions to the ecological and social challenges we face. The Sustainable Living Festival aims to inspire and empower everyday Australians to accelerate the uptake of sustainable living. The Festival’s expanded program engages individuals and communities across Victoria to host and promote sustainability events. The Festival’s Big Weekend event at Federation Square in the heart of Melbourne will continue to celebrate the very best examples of ecological and social sustainability. The event embraces interactive workshops, talks, demonstrations, artworks, exhibits, films and live performances. SLF will be screening the IN TRANSITION 2.0 film at Federation Square on the 16th February 2013.
