Award-winning director Damon Gameau (That Sugar Film) embarks on a journey to explore what the future could look like by the year 2040 if we 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 4-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.

SPECIAL OFFER: Madman Entertainment and Palace Cinemas have partnered to announce that school-aged students will be able to see the new film 2040 without charge on opening weekend at Palace Cinema locations around the country.

The intitiative coincides with the global advent of student-led climate change action and the fact that the film has resonated strongly with youth audiences at national Q&A preview screenings hosted by Gameau and other experts.
Gameau reflects on the positive reaction to 2040 from the student population: “We made this film to show a hopeful view of the future, and nobody can impact that more than the youth of today. We are getting passionate responses and great insights from students after early preview screenings, so we are thrilled to be working with Palace to make sure as many young people as possible can see the film and be inspired to join the regeneration.”
Palace Cinemas’, CEO, Benjamin Zeccola, indicated that the alignment felt right: “From solar panels to recycling programs, Palace Cinemas have long been committed to incorporating sustainable practises and we are thrilled to be able to support the next-generation of leaders and cinema-goers in making a positive change”.

2040 opens nationally at Palace Cinemas on Thursday 23 May 2019. For more information including cinema locations, visit madmanfilms.com.au/2040film.
