The Cinemar marine film cycle is an initiative by Marilles and Fundació Sa Nostra, consisting of monthly screenings of films with the sea as a theme. The aim is to inspire, to promote awareness of the problems faced by the marine environment, and to offer some possible solutions. Screenings are followed by a panel discussion with audience contributions.
To date, Cinemar has shown Out of Plastic, a documentary by Line Hadsbjerg about the impact of the wasteful consumption of plastic in the Balearics; Let’s Save our Mediterranean, by National Geographic; Chasing Coral, which illustrates the impact of global warming on coral reefs, and an episode of the BBC series Blue Planet.
"Cinemar allows people to get closer to the sea through images and to participate in a lively and open debate with all sectors of society; both are essential to move towards the conservation of the Balearic Sea".Ana Peña Communications Marilles Foundation
