Campaign to bring the film 2040 to Taree

Taree Community Garden is endeavouring to bring the film 2040 to Taree through a Fan Force Screening.

According to the film's website, 2040 is about award-winning director Damon Gameau (That Sugar Film) embarking on a journey to explore what the future could look like by the year 2040 if people 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 four-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.

Co-ordinator of the Taree Community Garden, Bree Katsamagos, said the film is source of hope and encouragement and shows that change is possible and achievable.

"Our Garden aims to be a place of connection but also community education, sharing ideas about how to live more sustainably.

"As the messaging around climate change and its impacts accelerate and the need for action becomes more urgent, hope seems a hard thing to find," she said.

"This film explores the resources and innovations we have available to us now that can make real and positive impacts in our community and across the world."

The event is scheduled for the Wednesday July 31 at 6.30pm at Fay's Twin Cinema.

"For the film to go ahead we need to sell 76 tickets, so far we have sold 28. Those wanting to attend can purchase their tickets here: https://fan-force.com/box-office/. Tickets are $25 each. If the film does not go ahead purchasers are automatically refunded."

The screening is a fundraiser, with $2 from the sale of each ticket going to Taree Community Garden.
