In its sixth consecutive year, the Vancouver Festival of Ocean Films (VFOF) inspires audiences to consider their relationship with the ocean through regional and international documentaries that focus on adventure, sport and the global issues that our waters currently face.
Through experiences with our oceans, the VFOF aims to educate, motivate and excite audiences.
Join us this year on September 13, 2015 at the Vancity Theatre from 4pm-10pm.
This year, VFOF is screening two feature-length documentaries (from Swiss and American directors), as well as a short film that is part of the evening showing. Audiences will be transported to northern Greenland, Alaska, a tiny Polynesian island, and to the depths of South America along the Chilean coast. Experience breathtaking cinematography that shines light on the global challenges that our waters currently face.
Between the matinee and evening films—from 6pm to 8pm—we’ll be celebrating as the VFOF organizer, the non-profit Georgia Strait Alliance, toasts 25 years of protecting our coastal waters. Join us!
