The Ocean Film Festival is a celebration of the planet's oceans, with wild seafaring voyages and fascinating marine-life – up on the big screen. 

"The Ocean Film Festival Tour is a platform for storytelling that brings the beauty, 
challenges and importance of our oceans to audiences around the world," says festival founder and CEO Jemima Robinson.
 
"This year's line-up is a testament to the incredible adventures, talents and environmental messages that resonate with us all. 

"We are thrilled to share these inspiring films and celebrate the magic of the ocean." 

The Ocean Film Festival was created in Australia to inspire people to enjoy, explore and protect our oceans, and this is the 11th year it has toured in the UK. 

The inspirational short films are introduced by a compère, and each screening will see a free prize giveaway to win ocean-related prizes. 

The Ocean Film Festival comes to Brighton Dome on 18th September 2024, For dates and tickets, visit www.oceanfilmfestival.co.uk.
