Waimea Ocean Film Festival starts Jan. 3
The upcountry town of Waimea and the sun-drenched Kohala Coast will provide the backdrops for the 2013 Waimea Ocean Film Festival opening Jan. 3.
The third annual event will immerse participants in a greater understanding and awareness of the ocean. Through a combination of films and activities, Ocean Film inspires, educates and engages participants in a celebration of the ocean and island culture.
Films will be screened Jan. 3-6 in Waimea and Jan. 8-11 at the Four Seasons Resort Hualalai. In addition to screening 30 to 40 exceptional and award-winning films, Ocean Film offers breakfast talks, Q&A filmmaker sessions, compelling panel discussions, artistic exhibits, receptions, a Taste of the Island and ways to get wet, including yoga on the beach and outrigger canoe lessons.
“We’re proud to be partners again in the Waimea Ocean Film Festival,” says Robert Whitfield, regional vice president and general manager of Four Seasons Resort Hualalai.
“The works and events presented within this festival are inspiring, entertaining and quite frankly, a lot of fun.”
Festival passes are available as six-punch passes, film passes and contributor passes and can be purchased online. Kamaaina and Early Bird Pass Rates are available until Nov. 15.
A festival schedule will be posted online in mid-December 2012 and updates can be found on Facebook at Waimea Ocean Film Festival.
Special hotel rates are offered at area resorts.
