Taree Community Garden needs to sell five tickets to bring the film 2040 to Taree through a Fan Force Screening.
Garden co-ordinator Bree Katsamangos is urging people to act to buy tickets for the screening that is scheduled for Wednesday, July 31 at 6.30pm at Fay's Twin Cinema.
According to the film's website, 2040 is about award-winning director Damon Gameau (That Sugar Film) embarking on a journey to explore what the future could look like by the year 2040 if people 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 four-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.
Bree said the film was a source of hope and encouragement and shows that change is possible and achievable.
"Our garden aims to be a place of connection but also community education, sharing ideas about how to live more sustainably," Bree said.
"As the messaging around climate change and its impacts accelerate and the need for action becomes more urgent, hope seems a hard thing to find.
"This film explores the resources and innovations we have available to us now that can make real and positive impacts in our community and across the world.
"For the film to go ahead we need to sell 76 tickets, and we are just five short of that goal. Those wanting to attend can purchase their tickets on the Fan Force website. Tickets are $25 each. If the film does not go ahead purchasers are automatically refunded."
The screening is also a fundraiser, with $2 from the sale of each ticket going to Taree Community Garden. The garden is located in the grounds of PCYC Taree in Commerce Street.
