OCEAN FILM CHALLENGE

Date posted: Dec 15th, 2017

View More >

The Ocean Film Challenge kicks off a massive initiative to move 1 in 7 people to act in support of the Ocean on Blue Out Day, June 8, 2018. The films created for this challenge will be used across multiple distribution channels to move people to act in support of the Ocean.

HATCH + Audience Awards is championing the Ocean, the work of Dr. Slyvia Earle and Blue Out Day because no matter how far from the shore that you live, the Ocean affects your life. The air that you breathe, the water you drink, the food you eat, the products that keep you warm, safe, informed and entertained — all can come from or be transported by the Ocean. It’s our lungs and heart .. giving us air and without it, we will perish. Every breath we take is from the Ocean.

Submit a short film, 7 minutes or under, on the impact humans have on the Ocean and the actions individuals can take to save the human race from extinction. The films will be juried by an industry panel at the close of submissions.

The top 8 ranked films will be determined as the finalists in the Ocean Film Challenge. From the finalists, awards will be announced following the screening for Best Film, Honorable Mention, Best in Score, Cinematography, Sound and Editing.

The finalists will premiere as a headline event at the DC Environmental Film Festival in March 2018. DCEFF is the largest environmental film festival in the world and is honoring Dr. Earle with the Environmental Champion Award in 2018. The finalist films will also screen at the International Wildlife Film Festival in Missoula, April 2018 and AudFest in Los Angeles on June 8, 2018. The global audience will vote for their favorite finalist films between June 1-8 and the top three audience voted films will be announced at the finalist screening at AudFest 2018 on Blue Out Day.

HATCH and Audience Awards is building a coalition of distribution partners to have the finalist films screen across platforms on June 8, 2018.
