We are honored to announce that A Plastic Ocean was the recipient of two awards at the Sedona International Film Festival (SIFF), which took place in the iconic Arizona resort town, February 18 – 26, 2017. Producer Jo Ruxton was on hand to receive the accolades for Best Documentary (Director’s Choice) and Best Environmental Film (Audience Choice).

“The response from people at the festival and from the public and students who attended the screenings was amazing,” says Ruxton. “It confirms to me the importance of our film’s message and the appetite that is out there for a film of this kind.”

Thank you SIFF for inviting A Plastic Ocean to be viewed at an incredible festival attended by amazing groups of engaged people. SIFF is recognized by filmmakers and audiences as one of the top festivals in the nation with a tradition of honoring those motivated by passion for their art and driven by a love for making timely, moving and important films.
