Short Film Festival: Champions for our Coasts

IF YOU’RE PASSIONATE about keeping our Top End coasts healthy, this free short film festival is a must do, must see, must hear.

Held in the iconic seaside location of Darwin Ski Club, the space presents the perfect setting in which to discuss the issue, this collection of short films showcasing the diversity of our coastal communities.

With 74% of people in the greater Darwin region keen for the next NT Government to do more to protect our coasts, it’s a hot topic ahead of this month’s NT Election.

Director at Keep Top End Coasts Healthy, Adele Pedder, says the issue is showcased through a series of short films created by passionate Territorians, fondly referred to as champions.

“We are honoured to bring these voices from across our Top End coast together into a one-night film festival here in Darwin. The stories are told from the heart and are lived experiences from this beautiful place we call home,” she says.

“There is a common thread – our coasts are at the heart of our Top End lifestyle, but their health is under threat. Across the Territory, communities are seeing signs of decline – mangrove dieback, pollution, depleted fish stocks.”

Head along for a healthy discussion on Top End coasts, enjoy a feed and a signature Top End sunset, and hear directly from some of the filmmakers and film stars. But get in quick to book your ticket, as places are limited.
