International filmmaker Shalini Kantayya to open Transitions Film Festival 2016!
Award winning filmmaker and eco-activist Shalini Kantayya (USA) will open the 5th annual Transitions Film Festival with the Australian Premiere of her feature documentary Catching the Sun.

Shalini Kantayya finished in the top 10 out of 12,000 filmmakers on Fox's ON THE LOT, a show by Steven Spielberg in search of Hollywood's next great director.

She is a Sundance Fellow, a TED Fellow, and was a finalist for the ABC Disney | DGA Directing Fellowship.

With countries like China investing in innovative technologies and capitalizing on this trillion-dollar opportunity, Catching the Sun tells the story of the global energy transition from the intimate perspective of workers and entrepreneurs building solutions to income inequality and climate change with their own hands.
