Tassie eco Film Fest

Thursday, November 12, 2015 - 7:00pm

The Tassie eco Film Fest (TeFF) is the first of its kind. Hobart is a perfect, flamboyant host for a festival merging culture and ecological awareness. Enveloped by luscious green mountains, Hobart holds an air of growth when one looks to both its natural landscapes and creative communities.

We don’t believe the topic of environment needs to be boring! TeFF will be creating a program of films that speak to both a local and global audience, engages the Tasmanian community in environmental issues and MOST of all entertains.
