The Waimea Ocean Film Festival (Ocean Film) returns to Waimea and the Kohala Coast January 2-10, 2014. Enjoy films and programs showing in Waimea, the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel and The Fairmont Orchid, Hawai‘i January 2-5, and then at Four Seasons Resort Hualalai January 6-10.
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, our culture and ourselves. Informative Q&A sessions after many films offer moviegoers 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.
Festival passes will go on sale in September 2013, along with early bird rates designed for kama‘aina. For event updates, visit www.waimeaoceanfilm.org, Waimea Ocean Film Festival on facebook or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
