Ocean Film Festival World Tour splashes into the UK this autumn

The Ocean Film Festival World Tour is bringing a new collection of the world’s best ocean-themed films to venues around the UK this autumn.

From big wave surfing to tiger shark conservation, the Ocean Film Festival is a cinematic celebration of the planet’s oceans, with inspirational short films from above and beneath the waves.

“Dive into a night of wild seafaring voyages and astounding marine life – without getting your feet wet!” said tour director Nell Teasdale.

“We are so excited to be bringing this brand-new collection of captivating films to ocean-loving audiences around the UK – and we guarantee you will be inspired to have an ocean adventure of your own too.”

The Ocean Film Festival originated in Australia, with the aim of inspiring people to explore, respect, enjoy and protect the oceans. As well as captivating films, each screening will see a free prize giveaway to win ocean-related goodies. The UK tour works with two fantastic charity partners: the Marine Conservation Society and Surfers Against Sewage.

Father of three Brendon Prince, from South Devon, attempts to become the first person ever to stand-up paddleboard around mainland Britain – a challenge that many have tried, but none have achieved. Circumnavigate joins Brendan on his gruelling journey around Britain’s spectacular and often treacherous coastline, in an attempt to break five world records and raise awareness for water safety education.


More than 20 years ago, conservationist and diver Jim Abernethy discovered the ‘affectionate’ side of large predatory sharks after removing a fishing hook from the jaws of a tiger shark. Since then he has removed thousands of hooks from sharks in the warm, clear waters off the Bahamas, and has brought divers to safely encounter these apex predators with the goal of de-stigmatising sharks as mindless killers.
