More exciting news:
Just had very successful West Coast Premiere at the San Francisco Green Film Festival. The Q&A was terrific, with many insightful questions about how we chose our approach to telling this story visually and from the perspective of content and themes. Many people noticed and appreciated how the film focussed on the local impacts of climate change – situating the global dilemma of sea level rise in a context people could wrap their heads around.

Shored Up is screening at the National Press Club in Washington, DC on June 18th. Although it is not open to the public, it will be attended by congressional staff and the press. It’s a very exciting opportunity for further exposure and meaningful discussion. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion moderated by Dianne Saenz from Climate Nexus. The panelists will be Kate White, from the US Army Corps of Engineers, Steve Ellis, Vice President of Taxpayers for Common Sense, Dr. Marcia McNutt, incoming editor-in-chief of Science Magazine, and Director Ben Kalina.”
