OCEAN FILM FESTIVAL
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
