2040 is an innovative feature documentary that looks to the future, but is vitally important now. It's out now in cinemas across Australia, and IFE has some free prize packs to giveaway. 

Have you ever wondered what the future could look like if we took action now on things we already know would make a difference? What's your vision for 2040, and what do you think we could do to achieve it?

About 2040: the movie

This is the premise of a new documentary by award-winning director Damon Gameau (That Sugar Film) which embarks on journey to explore what the year 2040 could look like if we simply embraced the best solutions already available to us to improve our planet and shifted them rapidly into the mainstream. Drawing on the best minds from around the world to focus on climate, economics, technology, civil society, agriculture and sustainability, 2040 maps out a pathway for change that can lead us to a more ecologically sustainable and equitable future.
