The Film & Screening (7:00 – 8:45 pm)

A Plastic Ocean brings to light the consequences of our global disposable lifestyle. We thought we could use plastic and throw it away with negligible impact to humans and animals. That turns out to be untrue. The result will astound viewers–just as it did the adventurers–who captured never-before-seen images of marine life, plastic pollution, and its ultimate consequences for human health.

It is estimated that 8 million tonnes of plastic waste enter the seas every year and it’s accumulating. Large pieces of plastic break-up into smaller pieces called micro-plastic which enter the food-chain. Discarded ‘Ghost’ fishing nets drift through oceans snaring everything in their path. Disposable wrap, bottles and packaging used on average for just 12 minutes will last a lifetime, even longer, littering the seabed, surface & coast.

More than just a movie this event forms part of a global wave of change, bringing together like-minded people from across society with an interest in sustainability. After the film the audience are invited to participate in a discussion with local experts about the issues raised. The foyer area will be taken over by Event Partners sponsor stalls, local campaign groups and businesses showcasing the excellent work being done in the region.

A pop-up cafe will be serving cinema snacks and a bar. This is the place to meet and mingle with like-minded people from across the region so please allow enough time before and after the film to socialise and network.
