The Eco Village Film Festival in Maleny Queensland celebrates the rise of sustainable communities, using appropriate technology to combat the effects of climate change, to refocus on care for the planet and promote a healthy lifestyle for the future of humanity. Selected documentaries and interviews on ecovillages around the world – and guest speakers will give short presentations relating to eco villages between videos. Info stalls will be on the verandah all day, and light food (some gourmet organic) will be available for lunch and dinner.

Networking, inspiration and news – local and global. It is being launched at the Crystal Waters markets on Saturday 2 Nov… as well as at the Film Festival. Invite your friends to come on Sunday at 1pm whether they are coming to the films or not. Lunch available.
You may ask “What is an ecovillage?” The Global Ecovillage Network was founded in 1995, and one of Crystal Waters’ designers, Max Lindegger, was an early member and Australian representative of GEN. Global Ecovillage Network proposes this definition are human-scale settlements, rural or urban, that strive to create models for sustainable living. They emerge according to the characteristics of their own bio-regions and typically embrace four dimensions: the social, the ecological, the cultural and the spiritual combined into a systemic, holistic approach that encourages community and personal development.

The new feature documentary ‘Crystal Waters – 30 Years On’ – introduced by Robin Clayfield and filmmaker Michael Ney – explores life at Crystal Waters and why ecovillages are so important today. Claire Ogden says, “This documentary is full of genuine people and reflects the diverse things we can all offer in community life. I enjoyed seeing the range of ages and people from all different countries who are brought together through their passion for Crystal Waters. This film is thoughtfully balanced and provides a window into a unique community.” Preview at: https://bit.ly/cwdoco01
