Festival-goers get a chance to enjoy hundreds of entertaining films, exciting programs and great camaraderie and in an inspiring destination.
“More than films, more than a celebration of all things wet, the Blue Ocean Film Festival brings together a potent mix of artists, scientists, conservationists, decision makers, industry leaders, inquisitive teachers, lively kids and more. Come to be in the company of kindred spirits and make useful contacts. Come to be entertained, or inspired, or informed. Come to have a good time. Whatever strums your blue heartstrings just don't miss out.”
