“No water, no life. No blue, no green.” – Sylvia Earle
71% of our planet’s surface is covered with water. Our seas and rivers sustain us, keep us alive, but we know little about them. We know less about the ocean floor than the surface of the Moon or even Mars! They are among the last frontiers of adventure and exploration. Yet, our rivers and oceans are threatened by exploitation and pollution, that is often beneath the surface and invisible to our eyes.
Through films that tell stories about the people, places and ecosystems that make up our rivers and oceans, the Moving Waters Film Festival hopes to bridge the worlds of research, exploration, conservation and filmmaking in India.
The film festival celebrates and showcases the grandeur of our Blue Planet in a two-day film festival.
In addition to films by Peter McBride, Ben Knight and Will Stauffer-Norris, it features the work of renowned Indian film makers like Saravanakumar Salem, Rita Banerjee and Amoghavarsha, among others. The festival features five world premieres, with films from lands as far away as Kiribati and Bali to our own Bangalore’s Vrishabhavathy and Arkavathy rivers.
The films have been carefully curated to reflect themes of exploration and adventure, ecosystems, conservation issues and people who depend on these rivers and oceans.
The festival has 8 key speakers, as well as introductions and Q&A sessions by some of the filmmakers themselves. From Grammy winning artists, like Ricky Kej, renowned scientists and activists, like John Kurien and Siddharth Chakravarthy, to educators and explorers like Arati Kumar-Rao and Tasneem Khan, the panel of speakers promises to keep the audience enthralled.
