Host a Screening

Want to bring the Ocean Frontiers films to your community—to engage, inspire and mobilize people to better manage and conserve our ocean and the economies it supports? Fill out the Host a Screening Form.

As the new ocean plans begin to be implemented, you can help build momentum and public support by setting up an Ocean Frontiers screening. In your community, at a monthly meetup, at your local library, at a lunchtime screening in your office, and in the classroom. Now more than ever we need to share these inspiring stories of our leaders who are reaching out across sectors to work together for the sake of our ocean and ocean economies.

We’ve made it easy to host your own screening. Please review the information below about the films/versions you can choose from, and then fill out the Host a Screening Form. We’ll send you free electronic files or DVDs, a step-by-step Screening Toolkit with promotional materials, discussion guides and more to get your event underway. You can preview the films by clicking on the film titles below.
