Promoting: BLUE On Tour

BLUE On Tour coming to Hobart!

This international film festival and conservation conversation uses the power of film to educate and inspire audiences on ocean issues.

Come along to the Stanley Burbury Theatre at the UTAS Sandy Bay Campus to watch some great films and listen to some wonderful speakers.

Opening night: Friday November 30th 6pm-10pm

Join us for some drinks and nibbles, followed by a screening of the stunning feature length documentary “Planet Ocean” and a talk by internationally renowned Canadian fisheries expert Dr Daniel Pauly. Dr Pauly will be discussing the opportunities and challenges of our marine environment – the threat of the Supertrawler and the potential of our marine parks.

An evening of fish: Sunday December 2nd 6pm-9:30pm

Fisheries are hugely important part of Tassie life – for recreation, for industry and for the environment. Come along to the Stanley Burbury Theatre for a screening of the award winning film “Sushi: the Global Catch” and a panel discussion between scientists, conservationists and fishers about the future of our fisheries.

Minds in the Water: Monday December 3rd 10am-1pm

Join us for a daytime screening of the inspirational film “Minds in the Water”, a documentary that travels with professional surfer Dave Rastovich on his journey from apathy to activism, followed by a conversation about how we can contribute to marine conservation in Tasmania.
