Accessing the film

2040 is an innovative feature documentary that looks to the future, but is vitally important NOW!  Director Damon Gameau 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.  

2040 launched in UK & Irish cinemas in Nov 2019, and is now available for school screenings across the country! You can purchase an educational license for 2040 for your school and share the film with your class by visiting the education shop
