What's happening?

Ocean Film Festival returns to Shrewsbury's Theatre Severn
09 Nov 2021

We’re delighted to see that the Ocean Film Festival is back with a collection of mesmerising ocean-themed films at Shrewsbury’s Theatre Severn on 11th November. 

Kirsty’s son Eddie is an avid PADI scuba diver… we think we know who will be going to this amazing screening! 

What does it en-TAIL?

The event will feature a brand-new selection of films, allowing audiences to dive into a night of stunning marine-life and adventurous voyages.

The short films, shot from above and below the surface, include marine conservation from the least explored depths of our planet.

The Ocean Film Festival began in Australia, with the aim of inspiring people to explore, respect, enjoy and protect the oceans. As well as awe-inspiring films, each screening will see a free prize giveaway to win ocean-related goodies. We’ve got our fingers crossed for you Eddie! 

New films for the 2021 tour

None of the films on the new live tour were shown in the Ocean Film Festival’s virtual events over lockdown. 

Film highlights include From Kurils With Love, which shows Russian marine biologist Vladimir stowed away on a boat filled with adventure junkies to reach the volcanic Kuril Islands, between Russia and Japan. From this dramatically beautiful and inaccessible chain of islands, From Kurils With Love introduces audiences to a true warrior for the planet on an intimate journey of visual bliss... and sea lion chaos.

Changing Tides shows an arduous 2,000km journey over three months with two kayaks - and zero single-use plastic. Cinema viewers can watch as university friends Lucy and Mathilde tackle their kayaking trip along the Inside Passage, down the coast of Alaska and Canada. With all of their 500 meals stored in paper, Changing Tides joins the duo on a journey of adventure, challenge, friendship and a deep love of the world’s oceans.
