At our world premiere screening at the Big Apple Film Festival, “Together: Dancing with Spinner Dolphins” won the award for Best Experimental Film!

At the Colorado Environmental Film Festival, where we (coincidentally) premiered on the same day, we received a second screening at the closing night session due to popular demand.

At both events, our film was recognized for its beautiful cinematography and moving images. We enjoyed responses like ‘very cool!’ and  ‘amazingly beautiful’ from our fellow filmmakers.

One Danish dancer/actor and his director said, “It is a really brilliant idea for a film, so interesting to have dancers and dolphins creating something together.”

We are more inspired than ever to share more dances and more of the context that illuminates how profound these interactions with wild dolphins are.

Thank you so much for your support!

And remember…if you didn’t catch it on the big screen, “Together” is available for download and on DVD –

Please forward the link to any of your friends who might enjoy this award winning short.  Every download is a meaningful contribution to our future work.

Congratulations as well to our cast of Spinner Dolphins!  They are the real stars. Let’s work together to make sure all dolphins continue to thrive in the oceans we share with them!

P.S.  There were many excellent documentaries at the Colorado Environmental Film Festival.  Award winners, with messages that we support, include ‘Play Again’ about how important it is for children to experience the natural world in order to care for it and to be healthy, and ‘Milking the Rhino’ which explores conservation strategies for encouraging local communities in Africa to protect the wild life that lives among them.
