Science & Environment

Inspire change within your community with a screening of 2040

how to book your science & environment celebration screening


There are many significant days throughout the year where Australians highlight the importance of our natural environment and celebrate our scientific achievements. 

National Science Week (15th-23rd August) is one of those opportunities, however communities can also purchase celebration screening kits for Earth Day (April 22), Plastic Free July, Keep Australia Beautiful Week (Aug) and Education Week (varies by State/Territory). 

The aim of these film screenings is to breathe new ideas and inspiration into local communities around Australia to open the discussion on how to combat new environmental challenges. 


what's the film about?


RUNTIME: 92 minutes


Award winning director Damon Gameau embarks on a journey to explore what the future could look like by the year 2040 if we simply embraced the best solutions already available to us to improve our planet and shifted them rapidly into the mainstream. Structured as a visual letter to his 4-year old daughter, Damon blends traditional documentary with dramatised sequences and high-end visual effects to create a vision board of how these solutions could regenerate the world for future generations.
