We hope you find these films inspiring and entertaining.

The offices of Georgia Strait Alliance are located on the unceded territories of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations (also known as Vancouver) and of the Snuneymuxw Nation (also known as Nanaimo). Our staff and volunteers also work on the unceded territories of many other Coast Salish Nations. All these territories are also now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples.

We respect and honour the people of all territories, and acknowledge that this land was never surrendered, relinquished, or handed over in any way. We also acknowledge the harms and mistakes of the past, and we are committed to moving forward in partnership with Indigenous Nations in the spirit of reconciliation and collaboration.

For more than 10 years, the Festival of Ocean Films has been helping to raise interest and awareness of the ocean, the threats to its sustainability, and the importance of taking action together to protect oceans, here in the Salish Sea, and around the world.

 

The Festival also supports our mission, grounded in environmental justice, to mobilize and support collective action to protect the Salish Sea region, as we work towards our vision of a Salish Sea teeming with life, where thriving and just communities live in balance with the environment

 

From February 3rd through the 11th, both in person and online, the Festival will be a part of IMPAC5, a global forum that brings together ocean conservation professionals and high-level officials to inform, inspire and act on marine protected areas. We look forward to sharing some great films with you!
