An undiscovered wilderness

North Sea, nature untamed – 2024 in cinemas and on TV

One of the largest nature reserves in Europe

We think we know every square inch of our continent, all the while our largest wilderness, the North Sea, lies for the most part out of sight. That is now about to change. The many secrets of the North Sea are revealed in a spectacular nature film. The North Sea is one of the busiest shipping routes in the world. There is intensive fishing and it is the stage for an enormous energy transition.

But first and foremost, the North Sea is our largest nature reserve! With a fascinating, undiscovered underwater world, home a surprising wealth of marine life, which will be impressively shared with the general public.

A major media project

With a cinema feature film, a 4-part TV series, supported by events and merchandise, we will share the secrets of the North Sea with a wide ranging public. The realization of this major media project is done by Dutch Maritime Productions and EMS FILMS. In 2024, the film will be shown on the big screen and on TV.

After ‘The New Wildernis’, now ‘The Wild North Sea’

North Sea, nature untamed, is a co-production of Dutch Maritime Productions and EMS FILMS. EMS FILMS has made ‘De Nieuwe Wildernis’ because they wanted to show people that beautiful nature does not always have to be exotic and far away. With that in mind, it is a fantastic challenge to work together with Dutch Maritime Productions to tell the story of the North Sea to the general public. Dutch Maritime Productions knows the North Sea from years of experience with diving and filming underwater. The North Sea is not an easy place to film, but nature is of a fascinating coherence, beauty and richness. The North Sea nature – just like the Oostvaardersplassen at the time – is a great ‘unknown’ to most people. It is fantastic that we can now visualize this together, because the North Sea deserves the spotlight and a big stage.
