This Autumn, the Ocean Film Festival is back!

The festival returns to Shrewsbury on November 11, with a collection of mesmerising ocean films from below and above the surface.  Audiences get the chance to dive into a night of mind-boggling marine life and seafaring voyages from a brand new selection of films, all from the comfort of Theatre Severn!

Returning as a live theatre tour, the Ocean Film Festival features a selection of short films starring wild seafaring voyages, extreme watersports and marine conservation from the least explored depths of the planet. The Ocean Film Festival originated in Australia, with the aim of inspiring people to explore, respect, enjoy and protect the oceans.

As well as these mesmerising films, each screening will see a free prize giveaway to win ocean-related goodies.

“We can’t wait to set sail back into theatres with our latest inspirational collection of ocean films,” says tour director Nell Teasdale.

“Witness intrepid human-powered challenges, mind-boggling marine life and incredible ocean cinematography, without getting your feet wet! We’re so excited to share our latest collection of films and to bring together ocean-loving communities around the UK,” adds Nell. “So dive into a night of ocean adventure – up on the big screen!”
