John Hopkins’ Bluefin opens See & Sea Festival in Korea

Filmmaker John Hopkins promotes Bluefin with Korean radio hostsPEI director John Hopkins’ acclaimed National Film Board feature documentary Bluefin (2016), set in North Lake, Prince Edward Island “The Tuna Capital of the World,” opened the Sea and See Festival in Busan, South Korea, in June, and had an outdoor night screening on Haeundae Beach, part of the Korea Ocean Leisure Show. 

Says Hopkins, “My film encourages us to see these creatures as we would elephants, tigers, and pandas, and not narrowly as sushi. It begs the question of how we can all play a part of a full recovery of this species, instead of being part of its complete demise. This can only happen through greater understanding. I am thrilled Bluefin is opening the Sea and See Festival in Busan.”

Since it’s release, Hopkins film has received a number of awards including  San Francisco International Ocean Festival’s Wildlife Award, Best Atlantic Filmmaker Award at the Lunenburg Doc Fest, a US Premiere on the red carpet at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, and a recent Nomination for a Gold Sheaf at the Yorkton Film Festival. Islanders will have an opportunity to see Bluefin during the PEI Food, Film and Ideas Festival in Charlotteton from with a screening at the Florence Simmons Performance Hall on July 14 at 8:30 pm.
