THE Transitions Film Festival makes its Perth debut this month.

Launched in 2012, the festival has been hosted in Melbourne, Adelaide, Sydney, Brisbane and Darwin with additional screenings in Alice Springs and Hobart and finally makes its way to Luna Outdoor Cinema in Leederville from March 23 to 25.

The line-up includes three documentaries about the existential challenges, mega-trends and creative visions that are redefining what it means to be human – with each session featuring guest speakers and panel discussions.

The Perth leg of the festival is hosted by not-for-profit organisation The Rescope Project.

Organisation director Anthony James praised the quality of films Albatross, Free Lunch Society and A Silent Transformation on the program.

He said they were sure to generate a dialogue on the future of the global economy, human societies and the living world.

“(It is a) growing national festival geared towards exploring the multiple transitions human societies are grappling with,” Mr James said.

“These sorts of public events are so important right now; we live in times of rapid change and uncertainty, and people are increasingly wondering how we transition to a functioning and equitable economy and support healthy communities within a flourishing planet.”

He said he hoped the festival inspired communities to come together and create positive ways to move forward.
