To inspire, encourage, recognize and promote the work of student filmmakers who are passionate about the ocean and maritime heritage, Monitor National Marine Sanctuary's Youth Working Group will host the 2nd annual One Ocean Student Film Festival. The event will be held during Earth Fair OBX on April 26, 2014, at UNC Coastal Studies Institute in Wanchese, N.C.
The themes of this year's competition aim to highlight and showcase our nation's rich maritime resources, heritage, and traditions. Topics may include, but are not limited to indigenous maritime cultures, shipwrecks as reefs, war along our coasts, seafaring traditions, and land-based maritime heritage.
