Watch New Zealand short films and talk to New Zealand filmmakers and environmental advocates:

11:00 AM - 12:10 pm - Watch Thirty Million, talk with filmmakers Adrien Taylor and Dr Daniel Price. Adrien is a Christchurch-based former TV3 environment reporter and Daniel is a climate scientist, who cycled from New Zealand to Paris in 2015 to raise awareness on climate change.

12:10 - 1:10 pm - Watch 3 short Happen films (An Invitation for Wildness, Living Simply in 20 Square Metres, and As-yet-untitled premier about permaculture) talk with the filmmakers and environmentalists Jordan and Antoinette.

1:10 - 1:40 pm - Lunch break at Cafe Royale.

1:40 - 2:40 pm - Watch a new film, Crop Swap Taranaki: Toha atu, toha mai (I share with you - you share with me) and talk with one of the leaders of this movement, Franziska von Hunerbei.

2:45 - 3:45 pm - Watch a fiction film, Changing the Tide, and talk to Christine Thomson (Wellington's NGO Keep a cool world) who has been using film to engage the community around climate change for 5years. Hear a summary of the research on the psychology surrounding climate change. How do the human heart and mind respond when faced with the facts? Are our 'natural psychological defences' in fact barriers to change? How can a film be used to navigate such barriers?

4:00 - 5:00 pm - A follow-on session after 15 min break, for those who could help apply these ideas. We want to create a strategy for how these films can be utilised to foster a 'Change of tide.' It has been suggested that it could be part of a school or university curriculum.

Come for all 4 films and talks, or choose specific ones that you are interested in. This event is free.
