A FISH FULL OF DOLLARS
Produced by Adrienne Gittus, Soulwater Productions (Indonesia)
Indonesia is the number one shark fish nation in the world. Despite world wide trends away from shark finning, the trade persists. This documentary addresses a global problem at a local level, investigating the impact of the worldwide massacre of sharks and rays.
SABA: THE UNSPOILED QUEEN
Produced by Nick Zachar (Saba)
This short documentary showcases an island nation that should be looked upon by the rest of the world as a model of conservation excellence. The passion that the islands residents have for their natural treasures and the lengths they go to protect the resources that support their livelihood is inspiring. Come along as we meet a few Sabans who will show us the incredible beauty that the island has to offer both above and below the waves.
LOCALLY MANAGED AREAS IN AFRICA
Produced by Jahawi Bertolli (Djibouti)
This film explains why Locally Managed Marine Areas (LMMAs) are beneficial to coastal communities, how they are established and exactly what they are.
Prodcued by Prakash Mata (India)
Bandipur and Nagarahole National Parks are home to the highest densities of big cats and elephants globally. People living adjacent to these parks frequently experience crop and property damage, livestock predation and occasionally are injured or killed. Wild Seve is a mobile platform that allows affected people to call in and report conflict incidents. This film captures the lives of people as they cope with their losses and documents the efforts of the Wild Seve team to respond and assist them.
Stick around afterwards for a panel discussion with Jahawi Bertolli, Prakash Mata and more!
