Mark your calendar for Ocean Film Fest


The Waimea Ocean Film Festival (Ocean Film) returns to Waimea and the Kohala Coast January 2 to 10, 2014. Enjoy films and programs showing in Waimea, the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel and The Fairmont Orchid January 2 to 10, 2014, and at the Four Seasons Resort Hualalai January 6 to 10.

The combination of exceptional and award-winning films, intimate breakfast talks, Q&A filmmaker sessions, compelling speakers, artistic exhibits and receptions is not to be missed. In its fourth year, Ocean Film also offers a culinary event, Taste of the Island, and early morning activities, such as yoga on the beach.

Through thought-provoking films and discussion, the festival immerses participants in a greater understanding and awareness of the ocean, culture and self. Informative Q&A sessions after many films offer viewers the opportunity to delve deeper into the film’s message and production while posing questions to filmmakers.

Last year’s festival offered more than 60 Q&As and a dozen casual breakfast talks with filmmakers and experts associated with film topics.

“The Waimea Ocean Film Festival engages, educates and inspires attendees in a celebration of ocean and island culture,” Tania Howard, Ocean Film founder and director, said. “It is about all that we love about Hawai‘i.”

Festival passes will go on sale in September, along with early bird rates designed for kama‘aina.
