Vegan Film Festival

28—29 May 2021

As Adelaide cements itself as the centre of Australia’s cinema boom, the country’s first Vegan Film Festival will launch in Adelaide next weekend.


Vegan Film Festival
28—29 May 2021
Palace Nova Cinema
3 Cinema Place, Adelaide 5000

Friday 28 May
6pm—9pm: tix $40

Saturday 29 May
10:30am—8:30pm: tix $20 per session or $49.50 for all three sessions


Organised by the minds behind the Vegan Festival Adelaide, the Vegan Film Festival aims to not just spotlight doom and gloom documentaries surrounding veganism but also comedy, drama and musical works from international filmmakers.

Showcasing 22 slices of pure cinematic meat- and dairy-free bliss at the East End’s Palace Nova Cinema, audiences are invited to buy tickets for the Friday night unveiling, where a green carpet will be rolled out, and local vegan caterer Francesco’s Osteria will supply canapés, paired with tipples from Brown Brothers Winery.

Films from over 13 countries will be screened across the weekend, including the premiere of the Australian animal-rights documentary Voiceless: Crime of Silence by Ryland Pearson-McManus on Friday night, followed by a Q&A session with Ryland and activist Kristy Alger.

For more information on the full roster of films and happenings throughout the vegan Film Festival, see the website.
