Did you know that 94% of life on Earth is aquatic? That makes us land-dwellers a very small minority. 

Come join fellow ocean-loving land-dwellers, filmmakers, and environmental luminaries at the International Ocean Film Festival (IOFF) Off the Reef Gala. Off the Reef features scrumptious food and wine, sensational auction items, a truly exciting guest speaker, ocean-inspired trailers of upcoming films, and live music by The Overcommitments

The IOFF is dedicated to using film as a medium to increase public awareness of the environmental, social, and cultural importance of marine ecosystems and foster a spirit of ocean stewardship. Commonly referred to as the "Sundance of the Ocean Film Festivals," the IOFF is now the premier ocean event in North America for ocean-related films. Learn more about the IOFF.

We all love our oceans and need to protect them. With concerted effort and passionate people we can bring about significant change. That begins with each of us, and especially with the next generation. 

Please help IOFF fulfill its mission and support our youth Education Programs
