The Last Reef’s Powerful, Positive Message Garners Awards, Thrills Audiences, and Highlights the Importance of Threatened Ocean Communities
Described as “breathtaking” and “positively otherworldly” by The Montreal Gazette, The Last Reef contributed to a record-breaking March break at the Montreal Science Center, drawing over 19,500 viewers in only nine days.
Directors Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicholas and producer Don Kempf join diplomats from Palau and scientists from NOAA’s Coral Reef Conservation Program for The Last Reef’s screening at the DC Environmental Film Festival.
Not only is the film a hit with critics and audiences—its powerful, uplifting environmental message is uniting world-renowned conservation scientists, global leaders, and the film’s directors, in an effort to share the importance and the fragility of these ecosystems with the public. Among other honors, The Last Reef most recently received the Save Our Seas Foundation’s award for Best Marine Conservation Message at the International Wildlife Film Festival.
With support from global partners including the United Nations Environment Program, NOAA, and Tommy Remengesau, Jr., former president of Palau and architect of the pioneering Micronesia Challenge, (an international partnership for natural resource conservation)The Last Reef is bringing audiences an appreciation of the incredible beauty and diversity of the ocean’s complex, parallel worlds—and building awareness of our power to preserve these seemingly-distant ecosystems.
“There are people out there who I think are reachable and I think films like this help because you have to grab somebody’s heart strings in order to make them listen,” said Dr. Sacha Vignieri, associate editor of Science, at an exclusive preview of The Last Reef hosted by the magazine’s publisher, The American Association for the Advancement of Science, at its headquarters in Washington, DC.
