The mission of the International Ocean Film Festival is to inspire people to appreciate and care for the ocean by revealing its wonders through independent films. Every year in northern California, the Festival features a four-day ocean engagement event for audiences from around the world.

Though the power of storytelling, filmmakers and the International Ocean Film Festival empower audiences of all ages to become better ocean stewards.

Festival tickets will be on sale starting February 2nd. For more information on the March 2nd-12th event in San Francisco, visit here.
