With over 1,500 views on the trailer of Plastic Shores, things are going well for LMV’s film on marine debris. We have now been approached by the United Nations’ Regional Information Centre to show ‘Plastic Shores’ at their March Cine-ONU event, which will be followed by a panel discussion of the problems of plastic pollution in the world’s oceans attended by politicians and experts in the field. It is a great honour to be invited to such an event and LMV is now stepping up a gear to make sure the film is completed in time. We have also been invited to the Hong Kong Ocean Film Festival and the San Francisco Ocean Film Festival in the beginning of March.
The run up to the Olympics is the perfect time to raise awareness for the plight of the world’s oceans in the UK. ‘Plastic Shores’ is orientated towards the British market and we are aiming to take the completed film on a nationwide educational tour in the run up to the Olympics to make people question their use of disposable plastics and think about the consequences of our wasteful society. This tour will coincide with showings at film festivals as well as our partnerships with non-profit educational bodies abroad. As a non-profit venture ourselves we are donating a lot of footage free of charge in the hope that it will help increase public debate on the subject.
