Audiences will be able to immerse themselves in the wonders of the ocean without getting their feet wet.
The International Ocean Film Festival is due to begin a UK tour and will be at Playhouse Whitley Bay on September 13.
The festival, which originated in Australia, will feature a selection of the world’s most captivating ocean-themed short films.
Designed to mesmerise and enthral, the International Ocean Film Festival showcases more than two hours of sublime footage taken above and below the water’s surface.
The films document the beauty and power of the ocean, and celebrate the divers, surfers, swimmers and oceanographers who live for the sea’s salt spray; who chase the crests of waves; and who marvel at the mysteries of the big blue.
Heart-stopping shots of surfers riding wild waves and adrenalin-inducing scenes of divers swimming with white sharks will leave audiences on the edges of their seats.
The films also encourage viewers to dive head first into ocean culture as the festival is filled with touching interviews and insightful narrations from the characters whose lives are inspired by the ocean.
Each of the festival’s films conveys a deep respect and appreciation for the world’s oceans and the creatures that call them home.
