Environmental Film Festival Australia Kids Sessions

This year’s Environmental Film Festival Australia is showing kid and teen sessions for the first time. In Australia and around the world, young people have demonstrated their concerns over the future of our planet by having Global Climate Strikes. Now the children of Melbourne will have the opportunity to continue with their momentum by learning vital information about the environment through film and hands-on workshops.

This year’s festival will run from 24 October – 1 November 2019 at various locations around Melbourne.

Backyard Wilderness 3D

The Australian premiere of Backyard Wilderness 3D will be introduced by wildlife educator Mike Alexander. With the help of a special furry friend, Mike will set the scene for the film’s message: to enjoy the beauty of nature around us, starting with our own backyard. Children will watch in wonder as creatures commonly found in backyards come to life in 3D magic. From the eyes of the creatures themselves, this beautiful film captures the seasonal changes experienced in nests, forest floors and ponds over the course of a year.
