Plunge into the energy of The Ocean Film Festival World Tour: March and April 2018
On the 23rd of March, the 2018 Ocean Film Festival World Tour will be screening at the Avoca Beach Picture Theatre, as part of the national tour screening over 40 times in more than 25 cities around Australia.
In this year's program we have some great Aussie's featured both in front of and behind the camera including CU's Jennie Gilbert. Jennie runs the Cairns Turtle Rehab Centre and is featured in a 10 minute film about her work with turtles and the volunteers at the rehab centre. We also have a film that features Sydney-born freediving champion Christina Saenz de Santamaria and surf filmmaker Tim Bonython.
Meet the characters and creatures of the environment that gave us life: the ocean. Through nine short and medium-length films, share an evening of raw power, overflowing passion, and deep respect at the Ocean Film Festival World Tour.
“These films are made by surfers, divers, sailors, and swimmers who feel compelled to share their connection to the water with us,” says Festival director, Jemima Robinson
Proceeds from select Festival events support the Australian Marine Conservation Society (AMCS), the Project AWARE Foundation, and Sea Shepherd Australia.

In 2015 Greta recorded ‘My Hero’ her debut album that became the highest ever charting Australian classical album on the pop chart and debuted at number one on the classical chart.
Accompanying her will be mezzo-soprano, Deborah Humble one of Australia’s most successful international artists. In 2004, she was awarded the prestigious Dame Sutherland Scholarship and the following year, she became a Principal Mezzo with the State Opera of Hamburg.
A graduate from the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts with a Bachelor of Music and a Diploma in Classical Voice, baritone Alex Sefton was a member of the Opera Australia Schools Company performing hundreds of times to thousands of students around Australia.
Australian/Italian tenor Virgilio Marino completes the line-up of singers.

He made his debut at Theater Regensburg in Germany performing the roles of Il Duca di Mantua in Rigoletto as well as the title role Oberon.
Pianist Francis Greep returns for his third performance with us. He has an international reputation for his work as a vocal coach, recitalist, chorus master, continuo player and conductor. He has worked for Opera Australia as part of the Music Staff and as Assistant Chorus Master.
The Opera in the Arboretum would not be complete without the ‘Central Coast Chamber Orchestra’ under the baton of Patrick Brennan.
The orchestra consists of 20 plus very talented youngsters and professional musicians from the Central Coast.
