Mission Statement

The mission of the International Ocean Film Festival is to save our oceans one film at a time.


The International Ocean Film Festival (IOFF), is the first and largest film festival focused on the ocean in North America.

Celebrating its 18th Anniversary in March 2021 the IOFF will be a virtual online film festival and hopefully an in-person event as well. Programs include live stream discussions with filmmakers and content experts, creating a unique online public forum on the environmental, social, and cultural importance of the ocean's ecosystems, habitats and its resources.
