Chasing Coral in your community

We are mobilizing communities around the world to participate in our impact campaign by hosting a screening of the film and engaging viewers in taking action. Chasing Coral will have a limited theatrical run during our premiere week in select cities and continue to screen at festivals using film to drive social change.

Community Impact Screenings

Nearly 100 community screening events are already taking place in people’s homes, their place of work or with local community groups.
