We live with the sea and yet one does not always realise how endangered this environment and its inhabitants are. This short film festival “Beneath the Waves”, aims to raise awareness on the Ocean’s issue but most of all on the solutions that exist. At the beginning the festival was taking place in the United States, in the same time others small festivals were organized in the world, in Iceland, Japan and Portugal for instance. Hamburg is hosting the festival for the fourth time and is organized by students from Hamburg and the marine conservation association: DEEPWAVE.

Considering the past years success, the new films of the young filmmakers are awaited with exceptional shooting of divers protecting marine life, scientists’ comments, impressive pictures pointing out endangered species, wastes, and water poisoning. The beauty and the Ocean’s wealth will be also presented.

There will be a film presentation divided in three different topics: “finding dory” “World trade in fish in the Coral Sea” and “The Ocean’s world: blue growth and sustainability”. There will also be a round table with government and university representatives and NGOs. The two film directors Heike Keuthen and Birgit Klumpp will be attending the film “Sea sells’” preview.
