Chasing Coral taps into the collective will and wisdom of an ad man, a self-proclaimed coral nerd, top-notch camera designers, and renowned marine biologists as they invent the first timelapse camera to record bleaching events as they happen. Unfortunately, the effort is anything but simple, and the team doggedly battles technical malfunctions and the force of nature in pursuit of their golden fleece: documenting the indisputable and tragic transformation below the waves. With its breathtaking photography, nail-biting suspense, and startling emotion, Chasing Coral is a dramatic revelation that won’t have audiences sitting idle for long.
Inside the Boulder Theater, enjoy music by the Styles Bitchly Trio! Lively, fun and accessible interpretations of the Great American Songbook, followed by the BIFF Awards Ceremony where we’ll honor the Best of the Fest with their hand-crafted Bill Vielehr award sculptures. The ceremony will be followed by a Colorado premiere of Chasing Coral .
