Surf Coast Shire Council is proud to present a special Torquay screening of 2040, the new feature film from award-winning director Damon Gameau (That Sugar Film).

We're very excited to have Damon Gameau joining us for a Q&A session after the film screening. He will be joined by special guests, Alex Marshall and Alison Marchant (Surf Coast community members) and Tracey Slatter (Managing Director, Barwon Water). 

About the film 2040

In the film, Damon embarks on a journey to explore what the future could look like by the year 2040 if we simply embraced the best solutions already available to us to improve our planet and shifted them rapidly into the mainstream. 

Structured as a visual letter to his 4-year-old daughter, Damon blends traditional documentary with dramatised sequences and high-end visual effects to create a vision board of how these solutions could regenerate the world for future generations.
