    The World Ocean Observatory is partnering with Main Street Bucksport this year for the 4th annual International Maritime Film Festival, a celebration of maritime heritage, spirit of adventure, concern for the environment, and ingenuity of boats and waterborne pursuits. In this week's episode of World Ocean Radio we discuss the upcoming festival and call for submissions, and reflect on the importance and power of the written word, photographs and film to make us aware of issues and to act toward change with new conviction.
