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.

    I am happy to host a screening of the important film. I believe there would be a deal of interest in this area. Currently I am thinking the library may be the best venue, but I will give this some more thought.

    I don’t want to commit to hosting here at my home as I am out of town a fair way with limited facilities however I can help someone else if they can host or can see if there are options to hold it somewhere. My husband & I have both lost our jobs at UNE (post Covid etc) so money is very tight & this limits me if there is a cost involved as we currently have no income. That said, happy to talk. Thanks,Francesca

    There is a local theatre (Kookaburra) which sometimes puts on this type of movie. I’m going there Friday to watch a locally shot film. Will ask them.
