Ocean-themed films will take your breath away
Ocean Film Festival, Spa Centre, Leamington, Wednesday September 12.
This is one leg of a world tour for these inspiring films brought to you by the team behind the Banff Film Festival. This collection of shorts celebrates divers, paddlers, surfers and oceanographers who have captured some truly remarkable images from around the world. With titles like One Breath, Blue and Kiwi Breeze, they offer a chance to sustain the summer vibe a little longer, though one look at the sumptuous trailer on YouTube could not be further from Margate. The tour began in Australia, with the aim of inspiring people to explore, respect, enjoy and protect the oceans. With recent news about plastic pollution and raised sea temperatures this is a timely reminder. And as a bonus, each screening will see a free prize giveaway to win ocean-related goodies too. “We’re really excited that more people than ever before will be able to celebrate their love of the ocean with our largest tour to date – and we’re especially excited to be extending the tour to Ireland for the first time,” says tour director Nell Teasdale. You could do worse than spend an evening in the company of these breathtaking films.
