The ultimate film event for all who love the sea. The International OCEAN FILM TOUR brings the beauty and fascination of the oceans to the big screen. The program consists of 5 inspiring films with a total duration of about 2 hours. The face of this year’s tour is freediver, dancer, and filmmaker Julie Gautier, for whom the element water is both workplace and stage. The environmental policy focus is the deep-sea adventure CHASING THE THUNDER, where we follow the marine conservation organization Sea Shepherd in its ambitious fight against illegal fishing.
In mid-march 2019, the Int. OCEAN FILM TOUR Volume 6 begins in Germany and then goes on an extensive tour through 14 countries worldwide with over 150 stops. This year’s screening on September 7 at the Rio Theatre in Santa Cruz will provide support for local non-profit, Mountains 2 Sea along with a call to action with Save our Shores (Coastal Clean up Day on September 21). We hope you will join us. For more information and tickets visit riotheatre.com
MTNS2SEA partners with schools to provide underserved youth with weekly outdoor adventure outings that focus on leadership skills, goal setting, personal reflection, social-emotional development, and environmental awareness. Being outside is at the heart of what we do and nature provides the catalyst for change and empowerment.
