Forest Defenders was filmed at the Takayna / Tarkine blockade over the summer of 2019-20 in North-West Tasmania, during an intense period of logging and resistance by brave forest activists.

The film explores the day-to-day lives of those on the frontline of the battle to save this ancient tract of cool-temperate rainforest, the largest in the world, from logging and mining.

Forest Defenders: The fight to protect Tasmania’s native forests, takes you straight to the frontline where ordinary people are stepping up, joining Bob Brown Foundation to protect some of the most incredible forests in the world from the archaic practice of native forest logging. Made entirely by the activists living the fight this film has a simple aim: To inspire you to join us and take Action for Earth.

Given that Vic Forests are planning to start “harvesting” in the Tallarook Forest very soon BEAM thought that this movie was a perfect fit!

You are invited to come along, enjoy the movie, part-take in a panel discussion with folk from Save Tallarook forest and others, get to know others who care about the environment and enjoy a 'forest' snack during the film.
