If you’ve ever wondered about CopenHill, the artificial ski slope that sits atop a waste-to-energy power plant in Copenhagen, then don’t miss the movie.

The Transitions Film Festival is back for its first all-virtual festival, showcasing documentaries about revolutionary changemakers and the best and brightest in innovation.

One of the festival’s highlights this year is the Australian debut of “Making a Mountain,” a new documentary that proves sustainable architecture can be both fun and eco-friendly.

The film follows the decade-long journey to create “CopenHill,” the artificial ski slope that sits atop a waste-to-energy power plant in Copenhagen.

The brainchild of architect Bjarke Ingles, “CopenHill” generates clean energy for 60,000 families while providing a community space for all to enjoy, a prime example of what Ingles dubbed “hedonistic sustainability,” the point where “sustainability actually becomes the more fun, the more enjoyable alternative to what we know.”

Online tickets for “Making a Mountain” are available at the Transitions Film Festival website until March 15th.
