Each year, EFFA’s Community Storytelling Project sees grassroots environmental groups create their own short films, working with impact filmmaking agency Digital Storytellers to capture and share their stories.
With just two days of intensive training, the environmental groups create cinema-quality short films which are screened during EFFA, providing exposure to highly-relevant audiences which the participating groups wouldn’t otherwise have the means or resources to reach.
The Community Storytelling Project is made possible with the generous support of Bank Australia – EFFA’s major partner for 2018. In 2018, participants were also provided the opportunity to talk to audience members first hand in the EFFA Lounge presented by Bank Australia – another way for participating environmental groups to reach more potential supporters, and gain new exposure for their important work.
Read on to find out more about the 2018 participants, and to watch their short films.
If you are part of a grassroots environmental organisation which would like to participate in the Community Storytelling Project in 2019, contact our Impact Team to register your interest.
