All attendees will receive a free reusable coffee cup to take away with them at the end of the film.

‘A Plastic Ocean’ covers the key topics that have been making news headlines all over the world – how has plastic made it to the ocean, and what impact is it having? It also seeks to find solutions, and show people that we have the power to turn the tide.
