Pachamama is the goddess of fertility, generosity and the feminine in Andean cultures in Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador, Chile and Argentina. In Quechua and Aymara, ‘pacha’ is the word for the world, cosmos, time and space, while ‘mama’ means mother, making ‘Mother Earth’ a common English translation. The Sydney Latin American Film Festival created the Pachamama Festival in 2014 as a platform for people from diverse cultural backgrounds to renew their connections to nature, in a world seemingly at war with nature.

They say there’s a reason and a season for everything and as the year draws to a close (it’s November already!) we are celebrating the challenges, successes & learning of this year but also looking with excitement to 2017.
