For the third year running, the NCMCRS Marine Conservation Film Series has lined up another six nights of award-winning films that demonstrate the wonder and weirdness of the sea and, for better or worse, our relationship with it.  This year features some special guests from around Tassie and around the planet.  There'll be tasty snacks and a few sneaky beverages to be had beforehand too. FREE entry.




What began as a simple but elegant food sold by Tokyo street vendors has become a worldwide phenomenon in the past 30 years. Sushi: The Global Catch is a feature-length documentary shot in five nations that explores the tradition, growth and future of this popular cuisine.  Beautiful raw pieces of fish and rice now appear from Warsaw and New York to football games in Texas towns.  Can this growth continue without consequence?
