The Ocean Exchange 2016 film intern program is now accepting applications.
Founded in 2010, The Ocean Exchange, an IRS 501(c) (3) organization, unites worldwide organizations across multiple disciplines and boundaries to accelerate the distribution and adoption of solutions that positively impact economies and the environment. This October the Exchange will be held, an event that highlight these solutions and provide a venue for thought leadership. Interns will be selected for training to assist members of our executive team to implement these events.
Ocean Exchange brings together 150 international leaders from diverse fields and backgrounds to meet and learn about the top world-class Solutions Inspiring Action. Exchange attendees provide insight and guidance to solution presenters, vetted by a multidisciplinary review committee of “best of class” experts, select the solutions to receive the $100,000 Gulfstream Navigator Award and the $100,000 Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics Orcelle Award and work together for 12 months to advance the adoption of the solutions presented at the Exchange around the globe.
The unique nature of this interdisciplinary event provides unparalleled opportunities for students from a variety of backgrounds and skill sets to experience real-world application to their fields of study. Interns are characterized by their enthusiasm, optimism and forward-thinking raw talent, and will be crucial team members in the success of this event. Ocean Exchange film interns form a production company and produce short films to tell the world about complex solutions related to sustainability, namely the Ocean Exchange finalists, from an artist’s perspective.
In 2016 there will be 15 finalists– up from 10 in prior years. The intern program is spearheaded by filmmaker Mehmet Caglayan of Blue Voyage Productions, and participants will connect with and be mentored by other prominent filmmakers.
