The Center for Coastal Studies is going virtual for our first ever short film festival! SEA CHANGE FILM SHORTS 2020 is available to stream FREE online anytime starting November 15!
Hosted by WBUR’s chief science editor Barbara Moran, whose film credits include NOVA, American Experience, Discovery and History channels, this hour-long special features 3 film shorts: festival award-winning Spinnaker chronicling the life of a young humpback whale, and two films about the devastating effects of microplastics on marine life. The show includes lively Q & As with Barbara Moran and Coastal Studies scientists.
In addition to Sea Change Film Shorts, all registered guests receive access to Sea Chest 2020, a mix of Coastal Studies productions and outside film shorts curated by its scientists covering a range of topics including climate change, marine animals, and much more.

“Spinnaker” focuses on the story of the film’s namesake whale, who the Center for Coastal Studies tracked from her birth to her death and across three entanglement events. Spinnaker’s life is a rare example where marine biologists were able to see how deeply entanglement can impact the lives of today’s whales. Her story is not an isolated one and represents the challenges that many marine animals now face after years of pollution and degradation threaten to collapse the once-thought to be indestructible ocean systems.
Sea Change Film Shorts 2020 is made possible by Willie’s Superbrew, our official 2021 Coastal Cleanups Partner, fighting plastic pollution along our shores through community programs and beach cleanups.
