The Vegan Film Festival is a celebration of unique storytelling and compassion, located in one of the world’s most liveable cities with a reputation for social change – Adelaide, Australia.
Australia’s first Vegan Film Festival is launching 28 & 29 May 2021 and is proudly supported by the City of Adelaide. An exciting 50 submissions from around the world were received with 22 selected to be part of this inaugural event to be held at the Palace Nova Cinema, East End.
Brought to you by the organisers of the world-renowned Vegan Festival Adelaide, this Film Festival elevates another platform for pioneering artists to share their visions of a sustainable world, inspiring stories of kindness and food to live for.
With Veganism being one of the fastest growing social justice movements worldwide, there has never been a better time to gather audiences to celebrate victories in animal rights and share inspiring stories to encourage others to take actions that not only benefit animals but our environment and health too.
When you think of vegan films it’s probably all doom and gloom, but the Vegan Film Festival is here to break that stereotype with a wide selection of genres from comedy to drama, from horror to rom-com, musicals and documentaries, animation, and more. The creativity is incredible and showcases the talents of local and international filmmakers.
Whether it be to share the vegan message with hard facts or just show how easy the lifestyle is, this film festival will make you laugh, cry, think, feel…and perhaps, set you on the path to a vegan world. Audiences will arrive intrigued and leave inspired.
Giving it an international flair, films have been sent from all over 13 countries and festival organisers are excited to invite audiences to join them Friday night 28 May at 6pm for a special Green Carpet Opening Night event (“Sustainable Glam”, think red carpet, only greener!). Audiences will enjoy canapes from local vegan caterer, Francesco’s Osteria and wines sponsored by Brown Brothers Winery before the exclusive world premiere of “Voiceless: Crime of Silence” followed by a Q&A with Filmmaker Ryland Pearson-McManus and activist, Kristy Alger.
