Friday, August 23 at 7:00pm to 9:00pm
Join us for the premiere of several engaging and topical short films produced by students in the UCSB Blue Horizons Summer Program for Environmental Media. During this nine-week summer program, students learn elements that are essential to producing documentary films – from developing a film’s core idea and story, to thinking about its impact on its audiences, to the nuts-and-bolts of video production. After examining the critical issues of our region’s oceans and seashores, students develop their own stories and produce their own short documentaries.
Blue Horizons is generously sponsored by Sony Pictures Entertainment.
The event will be followed by a reception in the Michael Douglas Lobby.
The Benioff Ocean Initiative Environmental Media Fellowship program, generously funded by Marc and Lynne Benioff, provides financial support for Blue Horizons students.
The program is cosponsored by the Carsey-Wolf Center, the Associated Student Coastal Fund, the Bren School of Environmental Science & Management, the Department of Film and Media Studies, the National Marine Sanctuaries Channel Islands, Pond5 and UCSB Summer Sessions.
