The Delaware premiere of the film, Ocean Frontiers II, takes place Thursday, April 9th, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. in the upstairs screening room at Movies At Midway, 18585 Coastal Highway, Rehoboth Beach, DE 19971.

In a region steeped in old maritime tradition, the film tells the story of a modern wave of big ships, energy industries and a changing climate, and how people are coming together to plan for a healthy ocean off their coast. Ocean Frontiers II is the second of an award winning film series produced by Green Fire Productions.

An interactive panel discussion takes place after the film, with Sarah Cooksey, Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Mid-Atlantic Regional Planning Body member; Matt Gove of Surfrider Foundation and others TBA. Audience members can ask questions of the panel to find out about regional ocean planning efforts underway and how to protect wildlife habitat, enhance recreational activities and support sustainable commercial uses in our increasingly busy Delaware waters.

The event is free and open to the public. Free refreshments will be provided. Reservations are requested; please visit http://bit.ly/OF2Del to RSVP. More information on the event can be found at ocean-frontiers.org/delaware.

Ocean Frontiers II highlights the historic and emerging ocean uses of Atlantic waters and reveals how collaborative planning reduces conflicts over ocean resources and puts us on a new path of ocean stewardship. The film is especially relevant as federal and state agencies strive to take a comprehensive look at ocean management in Delaware and the larger Mid-Atlantic region.

Green Fire Productions Executive Director and producer of Ocean Frontiers II, Karen Meyer stated, “While filming for Ocean Frontiers II, I was impressed with the way unlikely allies—energy industry, fishermen, Native American tribes, conservationists, scientists and government—worked together to find solutions that benefit the ocean, coastal communities and our coastal economies. The Ocean Frontiers II film is an inspiring story of vision and hope.”

The Delaware premiere of Ocean Frontiers II is hosted by the Delaware Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation and Green Fire Productions, with co-hosts Rehoboth Beach Film Society, Delaware Sea Grant, American Littoral Society and the Delaware Chapter of the Sierra Club.
