Embracing a handful of approaches to the future, from hard-hitting documentary photography following a man-made water crisis, to the world on fire, and an on-the-run documentary about what the everyman thinks the metaverse really is, these are films to get you thinking and feeling.

Screening daily on the big screen at Fed Square and featuring some of the most interesting Australian and international artists working with moving image, this film program provides space to reflect on artists’ views of the future of the environment, culture and technology.
