“One Water” to screen at Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival



Coral Gables, FL (Oct. 20, 2008) - “One Water,” a celebration of our planet’s relationship to water produced by the University of Miami and winner of the Artivist Film Festival ‘s Best Feature in the Environmental Preservation category, will screen at the Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival on Tuesday, October 28 at the Cinema Paradiso Theater.

“One Water,” a collaboration between the University of Miami School of Communication, College of Engineering and Frost School of Music, is an immersive experience that shows the state of the world’s fresh water and its effect on people, which is being aggravated by population growth and climate change.

“One Water,” which had its world premiere at the Miami International Film Festival in March, has a number of future film festival screenings lined up through November. The film recently screened at the internationally-renown Vancouver Film Festival and the Cinemaambiente Environmental Film Festival in Torino, Italy.

In keeping with its mission to help communities to better understand the planet, participate in the establishment of sound environmental policies and aid in the improvement of society and quality of life, the University of Miami’s Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science is partnering with Mrs. Jean Dolan to host a private reception before the screening.  Part of the Dr. William W. Dolan Lectureship, this event honors the memory of the late Dr. William W. Dolan, who was an avid sailor and scuba diver, and had great affinity for the vital research being conducted at the Rosenstiel School.
