The Ocean Film Festival Australia was held in 15 towns and cities (19 screenings) across Australia in March this year, showcasing the best of the ocean both above and below the surface through a series of short films. In association with PADI and the Project AWARE Foundation, the events aimed to inspire viewers to explore, respect, enjoy, and protect our oceans.
Inspiring and thought-provoking, the Ocean Film Festival Australia was filled with moving footage, touching interviews and insightful narrations with each of the festival’s films conveying a deep respect and appreciation for the world’s oceans and the creatures that call them home.
The event was not only a great success for marine conservation efforts however, but a great success for promoting PADI’s stance on the protection of our marine environment – a positive message sent to all event attendees.
With stimulating scuba diving and other underwater footage shown to hundreds in each location, while exposing the PADI brand to just shy of 6,000 people overall, it encouraged and motivated onlookers to explore and protect the diving locations close to home – great news for all PADI Members and Dive Centres in the area.
