Even in a world awash with images, art still has the power to draw attention. But can it trigger social change? The PangeaSeed art collective hopes so.

Thanks in part to the power of film, SeaWorld is starting to make changes in the right direction. They can, and should, find a new business model. http://ow.ly/UXTzN
The park’s decision to end its killer whale shows is a step in the right direction, but only a small one.

President Tong was at BLUE this year and impacted all of us with his words on climate change, calling it a problem for the human condition as it is forcing people on his island to leave their families. Here he is speaking out on Australia #climatechange #cop21 http://ow.ly/UXUyB

The president of Kiribati, Tong has become best known for admonishing wealthy countries for burning through fossil fuels at the expense of low-lying atolls scattered across the equatorial Pacific.  He is receiving the Dr. Sylvia Earle Award at BLUE this year for his passionate work in addressing climate change. #exploreBLUE2015 #OceanforClimate http://news.nationalgeographic.com/2015/03/150310-pacific-atoll-kiribati-anote-tong-climate-change-rising-seas/

Palau has been in the news recently for establishing an ocean marine sanctuary about the size of California- no commercial fishing or oil drilling will be allowed in these waters.

See The Ocean Like Never Before
Introduction
Every two years ocean leaders, filmmakers, photographers, scientists, explorers, entertainment executives - and the general public-- gather in Monterey at BLUE to honor the best in ocean filmmaking, to learn more about the issues facing our oceans, and to collaborate on improving the future of our oceans and humanity. The seven-day event is charged with energy as these diverse groups of people share knowledge and ideas with each other and with the general public.

BLUE's 4 Elements

Global Ocean Film Festival (Monterey, Sept. 24th – 30th, 2012)
At the heart of the Monterey event is BLUE Ocean Film Festival, which screens over 100 finalist films and showcases stellar ocean photography. All events are open to the general public and industry delegates. Fabulous parties encourage mingling with filmmakers, celebrities and industry executives in an intimate setting.

Industry Event (Monterey, Sept. 24th -- 30th, 2012)

Filmmakers, photographers, scientists, leading media brands, and equipment manufacturers—come together for BLUE’s Industry Event—which promotes excellence in underwater imaging and storytelling. Unparalleled
networking opportunities allow industry delegates to enhance their professional skills, explore groundbreaking technologies and learn about trendsetting media developments.

Conservation Summit (Monterey, Sept. 24th -- 30th, 2012)

In venues small enough to foster connections, world-class speakers and panels impart the latest science, share insight, debate issues and challenge audiences to be proactive. For filmmakers and general public alike, these sessions have proven to be some of the most dramatic and inspiring moments at BLUE.

BLUE on Tour (Worldwide, 2012-2014)
BLUE on Tour makes this amazing collection of films, and cutting edge conservation programs, available to audiences around the world. Our goal is to reach communities and audiences that may not otherwise have access to these films and the stories they share. By broadening the reach of these films we hope to inspire greater awareness and action on behalf of our oceans.
