In 2010, the Benthic Ecology Meeting started a new tradition of hosting a film festival of ocean-themed short movies that range from light-hearted music videos to hard-hitting in-your-face documentation of anthropogenic threats to our oceans. The increase in quality and artistry of the films in just two short years is amazing! Props to all the film makers that presented this year!
Here are a few that I think are a must see by my self-imposed categories, enjoy!
