The San Francisco Ocean Film Festival celebrates the sea with inspirational films that increase our appreciation of the oceans that surround us. Come view the beauty and mysteries of the ocean, experience the thrill of saltwater sports, explore coastal cultures, and pause to reflect on the importance of this vital ecosystem…

The San Francisco Ocean Film Festival is a volunteer-driven 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to using film to increase public understanding of the environmental, social and cultural importance of marine ecosystems and foster a spirit of ocean stewardship. SFOFF is now the premier venue in North America for ocean films.

Every year, SFOFF produces an acclaimed festival of ocean-themed films from all over the world that are largely unavailable to the general public. Themes range from marine science and industry to sports and adventure. The films are intended not only to entertain the audience but, more importantly, to educate and encourage active participation in ocean conservation.

This event was the first film festival of its kind in North America and the second in the world, following a well-established ocean festival in Toulon, France that has drawn large audiences for 40 years. The San Francisco Ocean Film Festival has attracted a loyal and growing audience since its launch in 2004, drawing diverse crowds from the Bay Area and beyond, including film enthusiasts, water sports fans, educators, and environmental supporters. The 2010 festival presented over 40 films, featured an expanded education program and continued its tradition of Festival Awards for works featuring the magnificence of our oceans, threats to marine life, and the human connection with the marine environment.
