2015 marks the 5th anniversary of the Dutch Food Filmfestival, which is celebrated with a tour around the Netherlands. Starting in June the Food Filmfestival on tour visited several cities with a travelling program of food, film and live talk shows about important food issues.

Last Saturday 1 November, the Food Filmfestival took place in The Hague, focussing on FISH. Healthy Seas was there, and our North Sea Coordinator Robert Steenbergen gave a talk about the issue of marine litter and the recycling of ghost fishing nets.

Together with topic-related partners like the ProSea Foundation, KIMO, DollyRopeFree and the Dutch governmental body Rijkswaterstaat, a marine litter stand was manned where we sold a lot of our Healthy Seas socks!
