John Hopkins’ documentary wins prize in San Francisco

John Hopkins in San Francisco (photo: submitted)Bluefin, directed by John Hopkins, recently screened at the 14th Annual International Ocean Film Festival (IOFF), its San Francisco premiere, and was the winner of the IOFF Wildlife Award.

John Hopkins’ Bluefin immerses audiences in a tale of epic stakes set in North Lake, PEI, the “tuna capital of the world.” Bluefin explores the baffling mystery of why normally wary bluefin tuna no longer fear humans, with these vulnerable giants being so apparently starving and strangely abundant that they’ll literally eat out of people’s hands. At the heart of this documentary lies a passionate concern by all about the fate of the magnificent bluefin tuna.

Produced by Annette Clarke and Paul McNeill for the The National Film Board of Canada (NFB), Bluefin was an official selection of the Atlantic Film Festival and Devour! The Food Film Fest, and was programmed in the Social Justice Documentary Competition & Reel Nature section of the Santa Barbara International Film Festival. It is also winner of the award for Best Atlantic Filmmaker at the Lunenburg Doc Fest for filmmaker John Hopkins.
