Cornwall Life - - THE DIARY -

This tour­ing film fes­ti­val is back in the West­coun­try with a brand new se­lec­tion of movies so mag­nif­i­cent you can al­most smell the sea spray.

The fifth tour of the UK is the big­gest to date, of­fer­ing what Fes­ti­val Di­rec­tor Neil Teas­dale says is “stun­ning cin­e­matog­ra­phy and mes­meris­ing sto­ry­telling.”

2018 films in­clude Kiwi Breeze, about a New Zealan­der’s 24,000km voy­age from Lon­don to his birth­place in a 44ft yacht he’s built him­self over nine years; a row­ing ad­ven­ture across the South At­lantic with Lat­vian friends Karlis and Gints and their se­cond-hand boat, Touched by Ocean, and the pas­sion of surf­ing in The Big

Wave Project, which was five years in the mak­ing. The award-win­ning Blue looks at the way the oceans are chang­ing and the in­di­vid­u­als who are de­fend­ing habi­tats and pro­tect­ing keystone species and Scar­let’s Tale re­veals what hap­pened when aspir­ing sports­man Ach­mat en­coun­tered a 4.7m Great White Shark called Scar­let in the sea off Africa.

The Ocean Film Fes­ti­val is at the Re­gal in Re­druth. For de­tails and book­ing go to ocean­film­fes­ti­val.co.uk
