The Ocean Film Festival World Tour is bringing a new collection of captivating ocean-themed ﬁlms to Birmingham this autumn.
Now in its 10th year, the Ocean Film Festival is a cinematic celebration of the planet’s oceans, starring mind-boggling marine creatures, seafaring voyages, and highlighting the profound impact of a lifestyle connected to the ocean.
“We started the Ocean Film Festival World Tour with big dreams, not only to inspire the world to explore and enjoy our oceans, but also to protect and respect them,” says festival founder Jemima Robinson.
“With a passion for ﬁlm and all things ocean, I wanted the Ocean Film Festival World Tour to become an avenue for bringing people together to celebrate mother nature. We have done this through sharing unique stories from independent ﬁlmmakers from around the globe, and now set our sights towards the next 10 years.”
The Ocean Film Festival originated in Australia, and in its ﬁrst 10 years has been shown in 14 countries, showcased ﬁlms from 89 independent ﬁlmmakers, and donated over £21,000 to ocean charities.
The 2023 UK tour is supported by PADI, the world’s largest diver organisation, and the Marine Conservation Society. The inspirational short ﬁlms are introduced by a compère, and each screening will see a free prize giveaway to win ocean-related goodies.
“Get a dose of Vitamin Sea at the Ocean Film Festival… without getting your feet wet!” ﬁnishes Jemima.
