Fri Oct 4
Facilitated by the festival’s Artistic Director Lydia Fairhall, a panel of eco-documentary makers, community members and First Nations land management specialists, will gather to create dialogue and engage in critical discussion around an issue close to the heart.
World renowned Indigenous Firestick Practitioner, filmmaker, artist and traditional knowledge land management consultant Victor Steffensen (Tagalaka) will share his insights into how traditional land management practices can regenerate landscape and bring life back to areas that have become depleted. Victor has traveled extensively throughout Australia, and the world helping people manage bush fires, working with Rural Fire Bridgades, pastoralists and local communities to repair and protect their land.
Panelists include Leanne Sommer, Project Manager for Sustainable Agriculture, World Wide Fund for Nature Australia, and Sean Ryan from Private Forestry Service Queensland.
