Don't miss this truly influential environmental film
"BLUE is a cinematic song for our oceans; beautiful, intimate and grand. Fearlessly truth-telling, yet passionately hopeful. See this film and you will want to rise up with the waves." — GREENPEACE AUSTRALIA
Join an extraordinary movement and support the fight in there being more plastic in the ocean than fish by 2050. Blue is a 2017 film about how the oceans are broken; half of all marine life lost in the last 40 years and shows us that as a planet, we are not doing enough to save it.
This could be one of the most influential environmental films of all time and has won international awards for its success. It is a story that needs to be heard and needs to be seen. There have been recent changes over the past few years such as removal of microbeads from cosmetics, coffee shops offering discounts to bring your own reusable cup, clean your local beach events and more recently Supermarkets agreeing to reduce their plastic bag sales, but this film will show that these only just scratch the surface of the global issue we all face.
There is no doubt there will be difficult parts to watch during the film as it tackles issues of habitat destruction, industrial-scale fishing, species loss, pollution and to really see the extent of the damage being caused, but follow the passionate advocates for ocean preservation and you'll leave wanting to change the world.

Demand films are great community events that only release reserved tickets and show the film in smaller venues if there are a minimum amount of tickets sold. Credit cards are not charged unless the event threshold is met. This ensures the promotors of the event are able to cover basic costs, but also acts as an incentive to get everyone involved.
The film has had sell-out events in NSW and VIC, with another 28 events being held across all states until mid-June.
Adelaide has 3 events this autumn, all of which are still pending and need our support to encourage the showings to go ahead. They are:
