From April and for the second time in Spain, the biggest ocean film tour of Europe will board on another trip.
For 14 years, the International OCEAN FILM TOUR has brought movies and documentaries, carefully picked, about the world of the seven seas to the big screen.
Each year, the festival improves, inspiring the adventurous and enthusiasts with unique stories, with exciting and spectacular characters from the wildest places on Earth. This festival, produced by the well-known German producer Moving Adventures GmbH, was born in Canarias thanks to the local producer Kinema Producciones with a very clear purpose: encourage in an alternative and direct way through the archipelago, the protection, defence and conservation of our oceans and shores.
To fulfil this vital goal, we want to count with every collective that on a daily basis fights to keep our environment clean, actively participates in the development of it and helps to take care of it in the medium and long term. We are lucky, not only for having one of the best climates in the world, but also to be able to enjoy a great diversity.
For all these reasons, we believe it is essential and urgent to join forces to protect and defend it for the future generations. The festival, in addition, is a 100% aligned with the 2030 Agenda of Circular Economy of the United Nations and also of the Spanish Government and in particular, with key tools of “Sensibilization, Formation, Participation and Disclosure” for the population in this so called, 4th industrial revolution.
