The Waimea Ocean Film Festival brings a rich and dynamic program to remarkable venues on the Big Island of Hawaiʻi every January.
Over 60 films, coupled with filmmaker Q&As, presentations and panel discussions highlight ocean experience, ocean environment, island culture, inspirational stories and epic adventure, set amidst the beauty of the Kohala Coast. Venues include some of the most stunning and exclusive resorts in the world – the Four Seasons Resort Hualālai, the Fairmont Orchid, Hawaiʻi, Mauna Kea Resort – along with historic theatres in the town of Waimea. There is simply nothing like it anywhere else in the world.
During the festival, passes can be purchased at the Festival Hospitality Desk, where the festival team is also available to answer questions. Updates to the program or event are posted to the website and on Facebook.
