Host a screening of Forest Defenders in your community



On Sunday 8th November we premiered the new film, Forest Defenders - The Fight for Tasmania's native forests. An environmental documentary of the Bob Brown Foundation’s last 12 months of frontline direct action against Tasmania's voracious native forest logging industry.

We hope that our new film has inspired you to volunteer, support or take part in our coming summer of forest protests.


In 2021, we’re looking for people to host screenings of the film in their homes, at their local libraries, community halls and local pubs so we can share the story of our frontline activists far and wide.

It doesn’t matter how big or small – if you’re interested in helping us to spread the message, please register your interest below and our community campaigner will be in touch to help you make your event a reality.




At the Foundation we are committed to defending and protecting native forests with non-violent direct intervention

2020 has seen our most intense season of forest frontline action yet. We are the leaders in action for native forests in Tasmania and we share this effort with many many volunteer defenders. Hundreds of volunteers participated in the Sumac Ridge Blockade, the shut down of Ta Ann's veneer mill, held multi-day occupations and disruptions of logging operations in Que River, Pieman, Wentworth Hills and Mt Field areas. 



Register below to host a community screening of Forest Defenders in your local community.

    We could host a screening in our lounge room for around 30 people. This area is a National Party stronghold, so any small changes in attitudes about the environment would be an achievement around here.

    Having shared your beautiful lands for many years Tasmania’s forest brought me great joy. I have a passion to stop the destruction on our native wildlife and sacred grounds. As a strong aboriginal woman I feel the destruction of our country as a whole within my core.

    I will help be a voice for the voiceless and spread awareness before it’s to late!!

    I’d like to show it at our local community centre. We’re only a small village but I’d hope to get 15-20 people.

    I’ve checked in with a small group of friends and all were enthusiastic – we are thinking perhaps to host a public event our community garden but not settled yet where. We will work that out depending on timing and weather.

    hi folks at BBF

    just wondering what shows you have organised for Melbourne?

    We could host one at the FoE office in Collingwood if Melb isn’t over booked..

    Could possibly also do Castlemaine, if thats not already covered.

    Looking into possible venues here too. Great work everyone. Your film is upbeat and that is incredible given the magnitude of the potential loss. Thank you all.

    Age restricts me from doing as much as I would like to do, but sharing events on FB and posting positive comments is what I love doing.
