The Waimea Ocean Film Festival brings a high powered and non-stop program of films, speakers, exhibits, Breakfast Talks and special events to exceptional venues on the Big Island each January, including some of the most stunning resorts in the world. Films fall into general categories of Ocean Experience, Ocean Environment, and Island Culture, including films which look at how what we do on land impacts the sea.
In 2017, films, programs and speakers were hosted January 2-5 at multiple venues in Waimea, the Mauna Kea Resort and the Fairmont Orchid, Hawaiʻi before moving January 6-10 to Four Seasons Resort Hualālai.
The 2018 Festival Program will be available for download from the website around Dec. 20, 2017. For a sense and feel of the festival and festival schedule, please view the 2017 Festival Program.
