LIFE AT SEA: Animated films about the sea programmed and presented by Belmont World Film.

MELTDOWN: A polar bear must try his luck finding a job in the big city when the last of his Arctic ice environment disappears.

THE KRILL IS GONE: A comedic take on the serious subject of man-made global warming voiced by Sponge Bobís Tom Kenney.
