The ultimate film event for all who love the sea. The International OCEAN FILM TOUR brings the beauty and fascination of the oceans to the big screen. The program consists of 6 inspiring films with a total duration of about two hours. The face of this year's tour is freediver, dancer, and filmmaker Julie Gautier, for whom the element water is both workplace and stage. The environmental policy focus is the deep-sea adventure CHASING THE THUNDER, where we follow the marine conservation organization Sea Shepherd in its ambitious fight against illegal fishing.
In mid-March 2019, the International OCEAN FILM TOUR, Volume 6, began in Germany. It goes on an extensive tour through 14 countries worldwide, with Mote Marine Laboratory serving as one of its 150 stops. Mote's screening of the International OCEAN FILM TOUR, Volume 6, kicks off our weekend celebration of World Oceans Day.
