Documentary Launch - The Borneo Case
Environmental Film Festival (EFFA)
In The Borneo Case, documentary filmmakers Erik Pauser and Dylan Williams spent five years intimately following the trail of an unlikely group of activists whose aim is to investigate how profits from the illegal logging that has annihilated more than 90% of the Malaysian Borneo Rainforest, have been money laundered into property portfolios all around the world.

Screening Date: Sunday 15th October 3:30 - 5:00 PM at ACMI.
Join us for the Film + Panel Discussion:
FSC Australia, Policy and Advocacy Manager Julia Mylne will be participating in a panel discussion that will run after the screening of the film. The panel discussion will focus on issues around cleaning up supply chains, sustainability, local issues as well as certifying imported forest products.
