12th Annual San Francisco
International Ocean Film Festival
February 27 – March 1, 2015
Cowell Theater, Fort Mason Center
We are very pleased to announce the return of the film festival to the Cowell Theater at Fort Mason Center, where the film festival first launched its maiden voyage along the beautiful
San Francisco waterfront.
The 12th Annual San Francisco Ocean Film Festival is proud to be North America’s premier cinemaquatic© film event for ocean-related independent films. Offering a carefully curated group of diverse films that capture the beauty, power and mysteries of the ocean, SFIOFF solicits films of all genres – documentaries, narratives, shorts, animation and full length films from around the world. Film topics focus on all aspects of our Blue Planet, including ocean exploration, wildlife, environmental, conservation, seafaring adventures, sports and coastal cultures.

During the film festival in March, our visiting filmmakers were treated to a day of sailing on the San Francisco Bay aboard the Derek M. Baylis, a 65-foot auxiliary-powered sailing research vessel. We had the chance to learn more about their inspiration for making their film and the effect the ocean had on them during the process. Enjoy!
