The premiere of the International OCEAN FILM TOUR Volume 5 on 15 March 2018 was a night to remember. It had not only been the first time for our new film program to be shown on big screen. We had also invited a couple of guests to a panel discussion about marine protected areas with honorary guest Dr. Sylvia Earle. The famous researcher also spoke to the whole audience for almost half an hour about her constant mission to protect our oceans.
Here are the first pictures from the premiere:
