Ocean Film Festival World Tour 2020 — POSTPONED
Dive into a festival filled with sea-focused cinema.
UPDATE: MARCH 24, 2020 — Due to current circumstances related to COVID-19, this year's Ocean Film Festival in Melbourne is planing on being rescheduled to a later date. Existing ticket holders have been advised to check the event's specific page for more information. Though further details are yet to be announced, we will be sure to keep you updated. To find out more about the status of COVID-19 in Australia and how to protect yourself, head to the Australian Government Department of Health's website.
There's something oh-so-relaxing about staring at the sea; however, even when Melbourne is basking in glorious sunshine, we can't always all hang out on the beach. Or near rivers or in pools for that matter — but you can head to the Ocean Film Festival World Tour.
Between March 24–26, it'll unleash a cinematic feast of water-focused wonders onto the big screen — at Village Cinemas at Melbourne Crown across two sessions on Tuesday, March 24, and at the Astor Theatre on Wednesday, March 25–Thursday, March 26.
Film-wise, viewers will spend time both above and below the ocean's surface thanks to a compilation of shorts from around the world. Expect to chase big waves, explore a range of sea life and get a hefty ocean rush, plus a heap of other sea adventures.
The program is united by a love of the ocean, an appreciation of the creatures who dwell in its waters and a curiosity to explore the substance that comprises more than two-thirds of the earth. It's the next best thing to diving in, all without getting wet.
