At the Ocean Film Festival World Tour our vision is to inspire you to explore, respect, enjoy, and protect our oceans. The film is at the heart of the Ocean Film Festival World Tour and we aim to share the best films from around the globe with our audiences.

Each year the Ocean Film Festival World Tour will screen over 2 hours of the most inspirational, educational and entertaining films related to the ocean from independent filmmakers both international and Australian.  The tour kicks off in March before travelling around Australia before heading around the globe.

The Ocean Film Festival World Tour includes a unique selection of films of varying lengths and styles covering topics such as the oceanic environment, marine creatures, ocean-related sports, coastal cultures and ocean lovers.
