Lighthouse International Film Society's second Spring time film will be the screening of the film screening of- Ocean Frontiers III: Leaders in Ocean Stewardship & the New Blue Economy. The screening and panel discussion will take place Saturday, April 22, 2017 at 7:00PM at the Ship Bottom Volunteer Firehouse- 2006 Central Ave, Ship Bottom, NJ 08008. 

Ocean Frontiers III, produced by Green Fire Productions,Ocean Frontiers III tells the story of the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic ocean plans and chronicles our efforts to plan for a healthy, safe, sustainable future. The film examines the intersection of national security, maritime commerce, fishing, and recreation, as well as the expanding offshore wind energy and aquaculture industries.

The film’s release coincides with the recent finalization of the nation’s first ocean plans in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions. The plans, which are based on the most comprehensive database of scientific and ocean use information ever compiled across the regions, will help manage the ocean’s many uses, including shipping, recreation, fishing, offshore energy and wildlife habitat protection.


“Ocean planning is essential for protecting the health and resilience of our oceans,” said Karen Meyer, Executive Director of Green Fire Productions and producer of Ocean Frontiers III. “We want to use this film as a way to continue building support for the new Northeast and Mid- Atlantic Ocean plans, and keep the momentum strong in the regions that are developing their plans – including the West Coast and the Pacific Islands.”

The award-winning Ocean Frontiers film series follows North American ocean planning from its early days, highlighting the use of new ocean data and extensive stakeholder input to keep national security strong, the economy growing, and ocean habitats protected.

“There’s a huge amount of pride in the work that’s been done to identify solutions that benefit our communities, our economy and our ocean,” Meyer said. “I’m inspired by all of the people who are part of this collaborative effort and are leading the way to a sustainable and thriving ocean.”

Following the film there will be a panel discussion and audience Q&A featuring Tim Dillingham of the Littoral Society along with other ocean voices. View the film preview trailer here:
