Transitions Film Festival returns to Melbourne this February with another enthralling line-up of cutting-edge documentaries about the existential challenges, mega-trends, game-changing technologies and creative visions that are redefining what it means to be human.

The film festival focuses on sharing inspirational stories about the solutions to society's greatest challenges and showcases the local heroes and changemakers who are building a better world.

Covering a huge range of mind-expanding themes, including: climate change, the future of food, big data, artificial intelligence, startups and innovation, youth activism and virtual reality, this year’s festival will change the way you look at the world.

Featuring a stellar line-up of powerful films and inspirational guest speakers, Transitions Film Festival runs from the 21st of February until the 8th of March at Cinema Nova before touring across Australia.

Full program HERE.

Matters Journal will be co-presenting More Human Than Human this year. More Human Than Human explores what it means to live in the age of intelligent machines. In this personal, playful and at times dramatic quest, the filmmaker finds out how much of his creativity and human values are at stake as he builds his own robot to replace himself as a filmmaker. Will artificial intelligence (AI), infinitely smarter, interconnected and possibly self-aware, render humanity obsolete?

To celebrate we've got a double pass to giveaway to more Human Than Human, screening on Wednesday, March 6, at 6:15pm. To enter the draw, click HERE and enter the code MMOREHUMANMATTERS. That's it.
