THE OCEAN Film Festival World Tour begins its Australian leg at the beginning of March, through to April, showcasing the best of underwater filmmaking and ocean cinematography.

Screenings will be held across the country, from Townsville, Queensland, to Launceston, Tasmania. To check for your nearest event click here.

Each screening runs for approximately two hours and is packed full of short films on topics ranging from marine creatures to oceanic environments, ocean-related sports and coastal cultures.

One of the first short films announced on the lineup was Tony Harrington’s award-winning piece Emocean, a “love letter” to the ocean and A Peace Within by Philip Gray, an ‘extreme artist’ who paints underwater, with more to be announced in the coming weeks.
