Event: -
The tide has come for change
Released in 2017, Blue (PG) is possibly one of the most influential environmental films, winning many international awards and being a story that needs to be seen for change to happen. As a planet, we are taking small steps to reduce our impact of plastics on the ocean; using reusable coffee cups, reducing the number of Supermarket plastic bags and local community clean the beach days, but this story highlights the magnitude the problems that we really face.

By 2050, it is expected that there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish and in the last 40 years alone, half of all marine life has been lost as a result of our behaviour.

"Our ocean has been the guardian of life on earth. Now it is our turn to be guardians for the ocean" - BLUE, THE FILM

It's not just about plastics though, it is a raw film with footage that is not normally seen, and may be difficult to watch in parts, as it tackles issues of industrial-scale fishing, species loss, habitat destruction and pollution, showing the extent of the damage really being caused.

The film tour last year had many sell-out events and check out this great film review from another Weekend Notes Writer who found it both interesting and informative. The film takes you along the journey of passionate ocean advocates, and after seeing their story and their work in preserving the oceans, it will be difficult to not want to be a part of the change.

Demand films are behind the organisation of community events, in smaller venues and only release tickets once the minimum amount set are sold. This acts as a great incentive to get everyone involved to ensure the showing goes ahead and credit cards are not charged unless the event threshold is met.



The film has already had sell-out events in NSW and VIC for 2018 and there are another 28 events being held across all states until mid-June.

Sydney has 5 events this autumn, all of which are still pending and need our support to encourage the showings to go ahead. They are:
