WED 29 NOVEMBER - A Plastic Ocean (1hr 42)
A Plastic Ocean is an adventure documentary shot in more than 20 locations over the past four years. Explorers Craig Leeson and Tanya Streeter and a team of international scientists reveal what lies behind the scourge of plastic pollution but share real solutions with viewers.

Discussion Q&A with local plastic ocean warriors – The Beach Co-op- & PETCO, the South African PET Plastic Recycling Company,

THU 30 NOVEMBER - Chasing Coral (1hr 33)
Around the world, coral reefs are feeling the heat — literally. Persistently rising ocean temperatures have triggered coral bleaching events on a scale never seen before. This new documentary tells a grim story of reefs in trouble, and warns about what we could lose when they die.

Q&A Session with Damian Foxall, Volvo Ocean Race sustainability - The Volvo yachts are in town, and so is Damian, a Volvo Ocean Race veteran who is passionate about ocean conservation and education which makes his addition to Vestas 11th Hour Racing a perfect match.

FRI 1 DECEMBER 2017 - BLUE (1hr 16) (with Smog of the Sea)
Blue is a powerful film that charts the challenges we face and the opportunities for positive change in how we look after our oceans. Filmed in Australia, Indonesia, the Philippines, the South Pacific and the United States, this stunning cinematic documentary comes at a time when we are making critical decisions that will decide the legacy we leave for generations to come.

Q&A with Ocean Warrior Diony Elbers Lalieu from Surfers Pledge & Romy Chevallier

FRI 1 DECEMBER 2017 - The Smog of the Sea (30min) (with Blue)
The Smog of the Sea chronicles a one-week journey through the remote waters of the Sargasso Sea. Marine scientist Marcus Eriksen invited onboard an unusual crew to help him study the sea: renowned surfers Keith and Dan Malloy, musician Jack Johnson, spearfisher woman Kimi Werner, and bodysurfer Mark Cunningham become citizen scientists on a mission to assess the fate of plastics in the world’s oceans.
