Inspiring images and tales from the deep return to the city with this year’s Ocean Film Festival. This is the sixth year it has toured the UK, with its origins in Australia, with the aim to get viewers to go and explore for themselves.
“From surfers to fishermen, and marine scientists to artists, these films feature fascinating characters who have dedicated their lives to the sea’s salt spray. It’s your chance to dip your toes into the wonders of the big blue, from a cinema seat,” says tour director Nell Teasdale.
The Corn Exchange on 24 October is the place to be, with highlights including A Peace Within, featuring Philip Gray on a mission to paint Mexico’s cenotes – clear-water subterranean pools – and Surfer Dan, featuring the ‘crazy guy with an icy beard’ Dan Schetter (pictured above), who surfs on Lake Superior in January among deadly currents and icebergs.
Tickets are £16.50, or £15 for concessions.
