Ocean Film Festival

The San Francisco Ocean Film Festival, now in its sixth year, once again hopes to inspire folks to celebrate Mother Ocean and work to conserve her precious resources. The event, which opens Friday and runs through the weekend at the Cowell Theater in the Fort Mason Center, will feature submissions from around the world. Some of the more West Coast-centric entries include:

  • Cordell Bank: Blue Water Oasis — Check out what’s lurking in the granite towers and reefs off Bodega Head.
  • The Farallon Islands: Past, Present and FutureEnjoy a virtual tour of the ‘Galapagos of California’.
  • Attack of the Sea Slugs — It may be only six minutes long, but we have a feeling this is one not to miss!
  • The City of the Shark — Sure, San Francisco is known for a big red bridge and a notorious rock, but it’s also home to some toothy critters.
  • Quest: Ugo Conti’s Spider Boat — This is your chance to learn more about that spider-like contraption that was plying the Bay’s waters a couple years ago.
  • Tomorrow’s Baja — Find out how Baja is being loved to death.

Festival passes are just $60 for the entire schedule of short films (nearly 40 films in nine programs), or $10 per individual program. For the full schedule and ticket information, go to
