Since 2013, the Human Rights Arts & Film Festival has devoted a section to children and young people, CineSeeds: A program of film, speakers and the arts for youth, exploring human rights in an age appropriate way. Now in its 6th year, HRAFF’s CineSeeds program engages young audiences aged 7–18 with human rights issues through film and live performances.
2019 CINESEEDS FESTIVAL PROGRAM: 2040
Sunday 19 May, 2:15pm, ACMI Cinemas
What’s your 2040? Tickets include a Q&A with 2040 director Damon Gameau and Gemma Borgo-Caratti (National Director, Australian Youth Climate Coalition).
What could the future look like if we embraced the best solutions available today? Damon Gameau (That Sugar Film) embarks on a personal journey to explore what the future would look like by the year 2040 if we embraced the best solutions already available to us to improve our planet and shifted them into the mainstream. Structured as a visual letter to his 4-year-old daughter, Damon blends traditional documentary footage with dramatised sequences and high-end visual effects to create a vision board for his daughter. HRAFF is delighted to present a special encore screening of 2040 for our CineSeeds Youth Program.
“Gameau’s noble motives and positive vibes are hard to fault.”
