A Netflix Original Documentary featuring the team behind the 50 Reefs initiative.
For the last three years, Emmy-winning filmmaker, Jeff Orlowski, and his team have followed the work of The Ocean Agency in recording and revealing a global coral bleaching event and the impacts of climate change on the world's coral reefs.
Awareness about the coral reef crisis and the need for urgent action is about to get a major boost with the global release on Netflix. Chasing Coral premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and is scheduled to be released globally on Netflix July 14, 2017.
Early December 2017, Chasing Coral was shortlisted for the Academy Awards. This means it has been selected as one of the 15 films contending for an Oscar. Tune in to your local channel on March 4th 2018 5pm PST for the ceremony and winner announcements.
