The Hawaii Ocean Film Festival combines the power of the ocean with the voices and visions of people around the globe to express their love of the ocean. Embracing culture and community, sport and spirit, the ocean theme opens the door for interpretation of the environment, its issues and sciences, or water sports activities. From below the sea, to the salty air above the wild surf, films at past events covered a vast array of topics. Adventure stories, extreme sports, environmental documentaries, and short films find an audience in Hawaii, and hopefully, around the world! Special thanks to Malama Hawaii and the Nature Conservancy.
