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.


Thankyou to all our supporters who put their hands up to host a screening of Forest Defenders in their local community. We have hosted more than 20 screenings, reaching more than 800 audience members across the country.

We will be wrapping up our community screening program for 2021, and will be undertaking no new events. However, we still have a number of screenings yet to happen in places like Port Macquarie, Byron Bay, Brisbane and Thirroul. Please keep your eyes peeled on our events page for upcoming screenings, as well as future opportunities to host events in collaboration with the Foundation. 



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.

    We’ve got very limited social contact allowed here in Norway but the libraries were allowed to open yesterday and I bet we can get this played at one of them, and at the two squats here in Oslo too. Looking forward to this!

    I will screen in Mount Barker SA. At home if interest is small. At the Waldorf school if interest is large (which I expect it to be).

    Definite interest in our community (Northern Illawarra NSW) to host a screening. What would we need in terms of technical expertise/equipment/support to facilitate the screening?

    Hi Molly,

    I’m in an Extinction Rebellion group soon to host a Camp Out event in our community, and I was thinking that a screening of the forest defender film might make a great element to include. We will be having the event outdoors, so I’m just in search of some details about it, and how it would be distributed, in case we end up using just a projector of some kind and a bedsheet hung from a tree.

    Do you think the screening would work in such a setting? Any details you can supply would be great. The event is in late March — we’re hoping for about 200 people to visit over the course of a day, but a screening would of course probably have to wait until dusk.

    I would like to host a film event in South Johnstone Community Hall, North Queensland. Stratvell Film Society, with a current membership of 23 people, shows films once a month. The sound in the Hall is not good, does the film have subtitles for the hearing impaired?
