Beneath The Waves Film Festival

Join us at the Living Coast Discovery Center for a unique evening filled with insightful ocean themed films and engaging conversation about our world beneath the waves.

Beneath the Waves Film Festivals: We feel like there is truly no experience like bringing people together, dimming the lights, and presenting the issues and stories first-hand. After the films, we engage the audience with local scientists, to allow them to learn about the important work that is being done right in their own community.
