Reception following the screening for students and audience members

Celebrate the end of summer with a screening of short films on marine and coastal topics created by student filmmakers in the 2010 BLUE HORIZONS Summer Program for Environmental Media.

BLUE HORIZONS founders Michael Hanrahan & Constance Penley will host the event, which will screen films covering topics including a controversial program that allows sea otters to be relocated from their native habitat near Point Conception to the area around San Nicholas Island; Santa Barbara’s Mission Creek restoration project and its impact on native species such as steelhead trout; and a tribute to Jacques Cousteau, with scientists, fishermen, filmmakers, and others discussing how Cousteau influenced their lives and work.

The Blue Horizons Student Films Screening is supported by the Carsey-Wolf Center at UC Santa Barbara.

We are grateful to Sony Pictures Entertainment for its donation of equipment to support the Environmental Media Initiative’s Blue Horizons Program.
