The International Ocean Film Festival screens the inspiring coastal documentary Canada C3: Coast To Coast To Coast at Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture in honor of World Oceans Day. Canada C3 follows the research icebreaker ship Polar Prince‘s 150-day, 25,000-kilometer journey along Canada’s coastline.
More than 400 people participated in the Polar Prince‘s expedition around the longest coastline in the world, including Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. The vessel traveled from Lunenberg, Nova Scotia to Victoria, British Columbia, engaging thousands of citizens living in more than 75 coastal, mainly indigenous communities. Millions of virtual voyage enthusiasts followed the Polar Prince via social media and digital learning platforms.
Following the film, attend a question-and-answer (Q&A) session with Geoff Green, C.M., founder and president of the Students On Ice Foundation. Also part of the Q&A is Captain Don Walsh, U.S. Navy (Retired), PhD, legendary oceanographer, explorer, ocean elder, and former submarine captain.
The screening takes place from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and the post-screening Q&A happens from 8:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. The doors open at 6:00 p.m.
