The Festival

Over the past twelve years, the Waimea Ocean Film Festival brought a rich and dynamic program to the Big Island of Hawaiʻi every January.

The Festival Program features over 70 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 the picturesque settings and special properties of Four Seasons Resort Hualālai, the Fairmont Orchid, Hawaiʻi and Mauna Kea Resort.

The full festival is on pause for 2021 while the island settles back on its feet. We hope to host a small, fun event in the coming year. We look forward to seeing you then!
