Be inspired by the visionary designer of the Greenhouse, Joost Bakker, and one of its collaborative residents, chef Jo Stafford.

Go behind the scenes of one of this year’s most impactful documentaries, the MIFF Premiere Fund–supported Greenhouse by Joost, just a stone’s throw from where the Future Food System – a self-sufficient residence that provides shelter, food and energy while reusing any by-products as fuel or fertiliser – still sits. Meet its creator, zero-waste activist and designer Bakker, and hear from esteemed chef Stafford about her time living in and with the residence. They will discuss this bold experiment in self-sustainable, eco-friendly living, and how it could offer a blueprint for the future. Hosted by Natasha Mitchell (Science Friction, ABC Radio National).

MIFF In Conversation events will be held at official venue partner The Edge at Fed Square.
