The Martha’s Vineyard Film Festival
Portraits of Protectors: how members of an island community work to save our ocean.
Ambassador Grant: Brock Callen Jr.
The Martha’s Vineyard Film Festival’s (TMVFF) mission is to produce community events, educational programs, and films that spark discussion, debate, and action. Through an annual film festival, screenings during the summer and a year-round children’s program, the organization uses film and filmmaking to raise awareness and create dialogue.
Through this project, TMVFF created a series of short-form documentaries about people making a positive impact on the health of our ocean. These videos were designed to raise awareness about the current state of the ocean and the challenges it’s facing, leaving viewers with actionable items that they can use in their own lives to create lasting change.
- Partner with 11th Hour Racing Ambassador Brock Callen Jr.
- Create three short documentaries, profiling local ocean champions. These videos will inspire viewers to take action while bringing attention to the people who are working tirelessly to improve the ocean’s health.
- Videos will be shared through social media and at screenings to highlight local champions and provide a call to action from viewers.
