Port Orford Sneak Preview

Port Orford Mayor, Jim Auborn and his wife, Karen, with filmmakers, Karen and Ralf Meyer.

Bill Cobb, an elder of the Port Orford fishing fleet said, “That film is somethin’!” after watching a sneak preview of Ocean Frontiers in Port Orford’s movie theatre Saturday evening. “Daddy Cobb” was joined by Port Orford’s mayor, Jim Auborn, and the rest of the people featured in the Port Orford segment of the film. The audience was moved emotionally by the film as well as energized and excited by what they saw. “It was so inspiring to learn about such a broad range of people in Massachusetts, the Florida Keys, Iowa and the Gulf of Mexico working to restore ocean health and ocean economies,” said Michael Murphy, Port Orford’s City Administrator. Tom Calvanese, an Oregon State grad student doing research on fish movement patterns said, “The producers of the film have done an incredible job of capturing the beauty, the bounty, and the complexity of our modern relationship with the world’s oceans.”

Plans are underway for an early 2012 gala premiere in Port Orford and in regions across the country. Contact us to host a screening of Ocean Frontiers – Our screening guide and promotion materials make it easy to bring your community together and help move ocean stewardship forward.
