Ocean Film Festival - Kayaking the Aleutians


36 minutes

British explorers Justine Curgenven and Sarah Outen set out to paddle the Aleutian chain of islands in Alaska. Alone for 101 days and at the mercy of one of the windiest, roughest places on earth, the duo are swept away from land by unknown currents, pounded by rough seas and approached by bears. On this epic journey, they gain a rare insight into themselves, the rich wildlife and this harsh yet beautiful landscape.

Ocean Film Festival - The Accord


18 minutes

The Icelandic landscape is breath-taking but also harsh and unforgiving for the tiny surfing community that inhabits the island. Follow Heiðar Logi Elíasson, Iceland’s first and only professional surfer, on his journey through Iceland’s magnificent terrain, depicting the turbulent relationship between an Icelandic surfer and the North Atlantic wind. 

Ocean Film Festival - Oceanminded


24 minutes

Oceanminded follows champion freediver Hanli Prinsloo along the coast of South Africa and Mozambique. Her underwater journey takes her into the realm of blacktip reef sharks, blue sharks, dolphins and mako sharks. You will be in awe as these often feared creatures are portrayed in a very different light, one of beauty and respect. It's an adventure full of risks and passions - in one breath!

Ocean Film Festival - Stay With Us


5 minutes

The search for extra-terrestrial life has always fascinated humans, as we look to the darkness above and imagine what sort of alien beings share our universe. Stay With Us suggests that maybe we’ve been looking in the wrong place – and introduces creatures far stranger than those we can dream up for sci-fi films…

Ocean Film Festival - Surfer Dan


8 minutes

Sun, sea and sand typically come to mind when you think about surfing, but this is not your typical surf film. Landlocked ocean-lover Dan Schetter lives on the shores of Lake Superior in Michigan where, in winter, strong winds across the water create deadly currents, icebergs and… waves. Known for being the crazy guy with an icy beard who catches waves in January, this is Dan’s story.

Touched by the Ocean


30 minutes

Latvian friends Karlis and Gints have no rowing experience, a second-hand rowing boat and a grand plan: to become the first team ever to row across the South Atlantic Ocean, from Namibia to Brazil. Touched by the Ocean joins them on a raucous 6,000km journey of adventure, dedication and friendship. 

Please note that some of the films may contain a small amount of coarse language.
