Ocean Film Tour

Image
If you find the ocean fascinating, above or below the sea line, this is the event for you. Touring round the UK, the Ocean Film Festival World Tour comes to Cornwall in October, the 9th to the 11th 2019 at the Regal Theatre in Redruth. Ideal for these more chilly autumn nights, the festival showcases a diverse collection of short films featuring amazing footage of the ocean with fascinating stories to tell. See A Peace Within , a 6 minute short about 'extreme artist' Philip Gray who paints under the surface of the sea, below where the ancient Mayans lived. Surfer Dan follows Dan Schetter as he surfs his local landlocked Michigan - on Lake Superior. Be that in ice, with deadly currents or on actual waves. To find out the other films showing and to get your tickets head to the Ocean Film Festival website.
