Transitions Film Festival

Transitions Film Festival

March 23, 2018 – March 25, 2018
Luna Cinemas, 155 Oxford St, Leederville WA 6007, Australia

Announcing the arrival of the Transitions Film Festival in Perth! We’ve partnered with this growing national festival, and Luna Palace cinemas, to host it in Perth for the first time, direct from screening in Melbourne and Sydney. The festival focuses on sharing positive stories about the solutions to society’s greatest challenges, and showcases the local heroes and changemakers who are building a better world.

The Festival comes to Perth with an enthralling line-up of cutting-edge documentaries about the existential challenges, mega-trends, and creative visions that are redefining what it means to be human. Featuring a stellar line-up of powerful films and inspirational guest speakers, Perth’s first Transitions Film Festival will change the way you look at the world.

Friday 23 March 2018, 8pm at Luna Outdoor Cinema in Leederville
n 2009, artist Chris Jordan travelled to Midway Island and bore witness to tens of thousands of dead albatrosses lying on the ground, their stomachs filled with plastic. After 8 years of filming the life cycles of these beautiful birds, Albatross was created – a visual odyssey examining how human materiality has impacted the natural world.

The debut film of acclaimed artist Chris Jordan, Albatross transcends the normal bounds of a typical nature documentary.

Free Lunch Society
Saturday 24 March 2018, 8pm at Luna Outdoor Cinema in Leederville
What would you do if your income were taken care of? Free Lunch Society, the first international film in cinemas about basic income, is dedicated to one of the most crucial questions of our times. It explores the history, and possible future, of ‘Universal Basic Income’ and gives us a glimpse into the possible economy of tomorrow.

An unconditional basic income means money for everyone – as a human right without service in return. Is it a visionary reform project, neoliberal axe to the roots of the social state or socially romantic left-wing utopia?

A Silent Transformation
Sunday 25 March 2018, 8pm at Luna Outdoor Cinema in Leederville

A Silent Transformation is a film about the transformative power of the co-operative model. The co-operative movement was built by people who took on the responsibility for their collective wellbeing in the face of government neglect, economic exclusion and cultural discrimination. As the modern economy increasingly denies vast sectors of the population basic amenities for decent life, this co-operative spirit is as critical as ever.

A Silent Transformation sets out to explore the innovative self-help efforts of diverse communities across the Province of Ontario, which by addressing their needs collectively are helping to regain the radical vision of co-operation. In these communities are the seeds of economic democracy, global solidarity, and a new popular movement to transform society! Will it grow and flourish?

Tickets $21/$16.50 (adult/student)

Transition Town Vincent Movie Night

“With My Own Two Wheels”

March 12, 2018 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
Paddington Ale House, 141 Scarborough Beach Road, Mount Hawthorn

For many Americans, the bicycle is a choice. An expensive toy. An eco-conscious mode of transportation. For countless others across the globe, it is much more.

For Fred, a health worker in Zambia, the bicycle is a means of reaching twice as many patients. For Bharati, a teenager in India, it provides access to education. For Mirriam, a disabled Ghanaian woman, working on bicycles is an escape from the stigma attached to disabled people in her community. For Carlos, a farmer in Guatemala, pedal power is a way to help neighbours reduce their impact on the environment. For Sharkey, a young man in California, the bicycle is an escape from the gangs that consume so many of his peers.

With My Own Two Wheels weaves together the experiences of these five individuals into a single story about how the bicycle can change the world—one pedal stroke at a time.


The film starts at 6.30 pm. You will be able to arrive at any time.

– We supply some cushions, if you want to bring your own you are most welcome to.

– No need to print your ticket.

– We apologise that you will not be able to bring your own food and drink to the venue, you will be able to purchase these at The Paddo (this is their rules).
