Films about the ocean, San Francisco international festival





The Ocean Film Festival World Tour has it's origins in Australia. The vision of the festival is to inspire you to explore, respect, enjoy, and protect our oceans. Film is at the heart of the Ocean Film Festival Australia and by introducing this tour into the UK the organizers aim to share the best films from around the globe with British audiences.


In Autumn 2015, the Ocean Film Festival UK Tour will screen around 3 hours of the most inspirational, educational and entertaining films related to the ocean from independent film makers from across the globe.


The festival is to include a unique selection of films of varying lengths and styles covering topics such as the oceanic environment, marine creatures, ocean related sports, coastal cultures and ocean lovers.


Most screenings start at 7:30pm, have a 15 to 20 minute interval at around 9:00pm and finish at about 10:30pm (so the screening runs for approximately 3 hours). Some screenings start at different times, so it is advisable to check your local screening details as per the booking links below.
