To help us talk about climate change, sea level rise and erosion, we want High Tide in Dorchester to spur discussions and action with as many people as possible. How are these changes already affecting us? How do we prepare for the future? What actions we can take NOW to reduce the harmful impacts?
We are excited to talk with communities around the Chesapeake Bay – and beyond – about what we have learned and to open discussions about solutions to one of the most pressing issue of our time.
Here are some of the ways you or your organization can use the film:
- Host private screenings followed by a discussion with the filmmakers and/or experts featured in the film.
- Obtain a one-time screening license for schools, civic and community associations, and at places of worship; you provide the venue, projector, and audience, we provide you the film and tools to make the screening a success.
- Organize home viewing “parties” with discussions afterwards, including a conference call with the filmmakers.
- Create a “Viewer’s Guide” Q&A to prompt discussions and suggest actions to take in your community
- Provide your local reporters with copies of the film and a press package
- Provide your local officials with copies of the film and an information package
Please contact us if you would like to arrange a screening or have other ideas and audiences for us to consider.
Beautiful Swimmers Revisited, another film by the Bay Journal documentary team, premiered at the Carnegie Institution for Science in Washington, D.C., during the Environmental Film Festival in the Nation’s Capital in 2016. A discussion with the filmmakers about management of the Chesapeake Bay fisheries followed the screening.
Dave, Tom and Sandy spoke to guests at an event hosted by Bob Caret, Chancellor of the University of Maryland for the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science. Excerpts from Beautiful Swimmers Revisited served as a springboard for discussion about the ways scientists, watermen and government can work together to protect the Chesapeake Bay.
