Geelong Pride Film Festival presents a special event screening of the beautiful new film 'Disobedience' about the love affair between two women in an Orthodox Jewish community (Rachel Weisz and Rachel McAdams). We are pairing this with a short film 'Aleph Melbourne' the story of the support group that changed the face of LGBTIQ acceptance in Jewish Australia.

Help lobby Geelong City Council to declare a climate emergency


Out of control emergency bushfires are sweeping across the state - destroying thousands of hectares, houses, and lives.

These fires, heatwaves, and droughts are not just unprecedented - they're the direct result of decades of climate destruction at the hands of fossil fuel loving politicians.

Australia's climate is changing and as a result we're seeing drier and hotter conditions. The windows of opportunity to safely carry out fuel reduction via back burning are closing, which has led us to the bushfire disaster we are seeing this summer.
