Blue Ocean Film Festivall runs from Tuesday 24 to Sunday 29 August. Wetpixel correspondents Stirling Zumbrunn and Jason Bradley will be posting live from the festival, and here are a few highlights to watch out for:
The opening film is Confessions of an Eco-Terrorist, a documentary that loosely follows Peter Brown and Paul Watson over the course of their over 20 combined years of ocean conservation. Disneynature Oceans will screen Thursday 26 August with a keynote speech by David Doubilet, Executive Producer of Earth. Oceans Don Hahn, producer of everything from Beauty and the Beast to the Disney behind-the-scenes doc Awaking Sleeping Beauty, will also be present and introducing the film.
For photographers, David Doubilet will display his “Below” collection throughout the festival, accompanied by exhibitions from Thomas P. Peschak, Ralph Lee Hopkins, Berkley White and Jason Bradley among others. The festival also has a host of other events, displays, workshops and conservation discussions. Please check back here regularly for updates over the next few days.
