In the summer of 2019–2020, the world’s eyes are fixed on Australia as it is ravaged by bushfires.  

 

When massive areas of the country are devastated by record-breaking heat, entire towns are engulfed in flames and thousands are left homeless. The toll on the landscape, including its human and animal populations, continues to this day. 

 
Thirty-four people across Australia died, including several volunteer firefighters who were on the frontline of this environmental disaster. The firefighters’ deaths were met with an outpouring of grief across the country and the bushfires further ignited the global debate on climate change.  

 

Through first-hand footage from those on the ground, Fire Front offers a moving tribute to those who faced the fires and an empowering call to action to prevent such a tragic outcome ever happening again. 

 
‘This exhilarating and devastating film immerses the viewer in the fire trucks, the control rooms and the homes of those affected’ – Melbourne International Film Festival
