A COLLECTION of ocean-themed movies will be screened in Weymouth with the return of a film festival.

The Ocean Film Festival is returning with a live theatre tour, which will arrive at Weymouth Pavilion on October 1.

The festival features a selection of short films starring wild seafaring voyages, extreme watersports and marine conservation.

Tour director Nell Teasdale said: “We can’t wait to set sail back into theatres with our latest inspirational collection of ocean films.

“Witness intrepid human-powered challenges, mind-boggling marine life and incredible ocean cinematography, without getting your feet wet!

“We’re so excited to share our latest collection of films and to bring together ocean-loving communities around the UK."

The Ocean Film Festival originated in Australia, with the aim of inspiring people to explore, respect, enjoy and protect the oceans. As well as mesmerising films, each screening will see a free prize giveaway to win ocean-related goodies. None of the films on the live tour were shown in the Ocean Film Festival’s virtual events over lockdown.
