2nd Annual Ocean Film Tour
The blue wonder on the big screen—the Int. OCEAN FILM TOUR presents the captivating sea in all its diversity and beauty. This exclusive program consists of six visually stunning documentary films and has a total runtime of two hours.
The Int. OCEAN FILM TOUR takes the viewer on a wondrous voyage of the cosmic ocean, well beyond ordinary cinema. The protagonists rollick on and under the water, showing what’s possible with a board under their feet, daringly defying the forces of nature, and arousing a desire to heed the call of the sea. Every year, the Int. OCEAN FILM TOUR also promotes an environmental policy focus, providing inspiring messages to take action and protect our natural resources.
Beginning in March 2018, the International OCEAN FILM TOUR Vol. 5 will embark on a world tour with over 130 events across Europe, Australia, and the U.S.

THE BIG WAVE PROJECT – A BAND OF BROTHERS
Big wave surfing in Portugal: The name “Nazaré” makes all surfers’ hearts beat faster. The small fishing village on the Atlantic coast of Portugal has become synonymous with gargantuan mountains of water, massive waves that push the world’s big wave elite to its limits. When the tide is high in Nazaré and sets of Atlantic storms roll onto shore, only the best surfers dare to get in the water. We come aboard for a wild ride with Sebastian Steudtner, Garrett McNamara and Andrew Cotton.
Off the coast of Mozambique, a pristine and dazzling
treasure chest awaits—one of the oldest coral reefs of the planet. But this paradise of biodiversity is under threat. Coral bleaching is a warning sign of global warming. VAMIZI takes us into the fascinating world of coral reefs and shows what we can protect by establishing “hope spots”.
Around the world in 220 days. Despite being in his landlocked homeland, the Swiss sailor Yvan Bourgnon dreams big. He embarks on a solo trip around the world in his cockpit-less catamaran. No protection against the elements, no crew, and 55,000 kilometres of open water ahead. On his journey, Bourgnon faces storms, pirates, and polluted seas.
An ode to waves. Morgan Maassen plunges under the water with his high-contrast, slow- motion camera to show us the world, the waves, and the sea from a new perspective. WATER II is Maassen‘s visual declaration of love for his muse, the sea.
AND THEN WE SWAM
They didn’t have a clue what they were about to do and they had no experience at all. But that wouldn’t stop rowing rookies Ben Stenning and James Adair from pursuing their dream: Crossing the Indian Ocean. When Ben and James rowed off, they were nervous, but still optimistic. At least the boat had the experience that her crew was lacking. Knowing no safety boat could reach them, should they ever get into trouble, the thought of the 3500 miles from Australia to Mauritius grew even more daunting. But James and Ben couldn’t resist the call of adventure. After 116 days on the ocean they finally approach Mauritius. That's when a gigantic wave hits their boat - they capsize five miles offshore...
WHY NOT NOW
When Vivian Stancil was 49 years old, her doctor told her that she needed to immediately improve her health. Despite being afraid of the water—she’s legally blind and had never been in a pool before—she was determined to learn how to swim for exercise. Now at 70 years old, she’s an award winning senior olympic swimmer.
Kai Lenny—kitesurfer, windsurfer, and big-wave, tow-in, and stand-up paddle surfer—is aptly described as a total waterman. The 25-year-old Hawaiian, who stepped on a surfboard for the first time at the age of five, is regarded as an exceptional talent. Like no other surfer out there, Lenny thrives on the water, feeling his way into the wind and waves, independent of the equipment. In Paradigm Lost, he shows us the ultimate watersports action in a variety of disciplines and in the best spots worldwide!
