A film festival of game-changing documentaries is coming to Katherine this weekend.
The NT Government sponsored event, Transitions Film Festival, is screening solutions to the issues of our time.
Including some NT shorts, each film aims to inspire effective change, inform and engage by connecting audiences to cutting-edge ideas from around the globe.
The film festival also aims to promoting local community groups that are making an impact in the NT.
Hosted in Darwin for the past six years, this is the first time the film festival is showing in Katherine, at the Katherine Cinema.
The festival starts at 5pm on Saturday with the stunningly shot film Albatross.
The moving film by American photographer and filmmaker Chris Jordan, illustrates the immense impact of plastic pollution on the Albatross.
An NT short Sugarbag blues, will also be shown on Saturday, telling the story of respected Aboriginal pastoral station owner Frank Shadforth, and the declining pollination of wild flora, which is significantly risking bush health.
The program also includes:
Unseen Enemy at 7:30pm on Saturday.
Chasing Coral at 3pm on Sunday.
NT Short Water is Life, followed by Unfractured at 5:30 pm on Sunday.
Both films talk about what it will take to have fracking banned through sustained community action.
Information about how to get involved in local actions will be available before and after the films.
All tickets can be purchased at Katherine Cinema.
Ticket prices are: adult $16, concession $12, kids $8 and family $35.
