Documentary | Australia | Australian Premiere

In his long-awaited follow-up to That Sugar Film, award-winning filmmaker Damon Gameau embarks on a journey to explore what the future would look like by the year 2040 if we simply embraced the best solutions already available to us to improve our planet.

Globe-trotting to investigate a startling array of new technologies already being implemented, Gameau also jumps ahead to 2040 using impressive CGI creating a spectacular and optimistic vision of the best possible world we could reach in the future.

Fresh from its world premiere at Berlinale, 2040 is an energising and inspirational look at how we can overcome many of our modern-day problems. Gameau’s film is never weighed down by negativity, instead it embraces positive solutions in a fantastically entertaining form.

Join the filmmakers and director Damon Gameau on the red carpet and for a Q and A after the film.
