Festival of Ocean Films

Dive in and explore the ocean through the power of film.

February 6th & 7th in Vancouver and February 3rd – 11th online.

Celebrate our connection to the ocean with Georgia Strait Alliance’s Festival of Ocean Films! Returning this February after a two year pause, the Festival features beautiful films helping you explore your relationship to the sea, rivers, and other bodies of water, and inspiring conversation and action to protect local waters. This year, we are collaborating with IMPAC5—the International Marine Protected Areas Congress—to bring an exciting program of events to Vancouver and to global audiences online.

In order to create a safe environment for all our guests, Covid-19 protocols will be in place, including the wearing of masks. More details to come prior to the event dates.
