“Save the Reef Act Now” documentary created by Foreign Correspondents Association Members has been nominated for best documentary at the Melbourne Documentary Film Festival.
The inspiring documentary was produced by Australia Asia Film Group, MCMSTV (Japan), Hollywood Pictures (Shanghai), and Calypso Productions (Australia), and draws attention to one of the most fragile natural wonders in the world.
The beauty of the Great Barrier Reef is breath-taking, but the pressures on its future are real and immediate. Save the Reef Act Now showcases the importance the reef has on the world and the animals that live around it. The documentary also explores the impact climate change has had on the Great Barrier Reef and global threat to the coral reef ecosystems.
Climate change poses the greatest threat to the Great Barrier Reef and coral reefs globally. Scientific evidence now clearly indicates that the earth’s atmosphere and ocean are warming, and that these changes are primarily due to greenhouse gases derived from human activities.
“We tell the story of the various threats to the survival of the Great Barrier Reef, the effects of those threats, the diverse range of interests and people who are determined to beat the odds and the action they are taking to save the Reef,” said Mimi Chau, the documentary producer.
There are now real concerns about the survival of coral reefs from international and Australian experts in marine science, government, tourism, and the general population including young children who are the future.
The actions of people across the planet will define the future of the Great Barrier Reef and reefs around the world.
“We hope to inspire collaboration and collective impact on a global scale. Any action no matter how big or small from discarding single-use plastics to science and world-leading research – now is the time to act,” Chau added.
Save the Reef Act Now documentary will have the world’s first virtual screening in Australia at MDFF on June 30. Visit the MDFF website for pre-sale tickets and more details.
