Our Judges say:

This eye-opening film will forever alter your perspective on the amount of plastic you use in daily life.

Ruth Farrar

The film that everyone is talking about. A challenging but important look at what is happening to the world’s oceans. It definitely motivated me to reduce the amount of plastic I use.

Anna Paxton

I look into plastic Around the World in a depth that I have never had explained to me before. A film that does indeed motivate change.

A PLASTIC OCEAN begins when journalist Craig Leeson, searching for the elusive blue whale, discovers plastic waste in what should be pristine ocean. 

In this adventure documentary, Craig teams up with free diver Tanya Streeter and an international team of scientists and researchers, and they travel to twenty locations around the world over the next four years to explore the fragile state of our oceans, uncover alarming truths about plastic pollution, and reveal working solutions that can be put into immediate effect.
