Blue Water Film Festival to Host Opening Night at Museum of Photographic Arts in Balboa Park

Thursday, June 8, 2023 from 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM
Museum of Photographic Arts
Tickets sold online + at the door.

The 2023 Blue Water Film Festival (BWFF) takes place June 8 - 11, 2023 at various locations throughout San Diego County, in celebration of United Nations World Oceans Day. The event will feature a total of 34 films; 11 feature films, 19 shorts, and 4 animated short films.

Opening night will be held June 8 at MOPA in Balboa Park screening "THE WATER WALKER" with Oceanside-born Producer Stevie Salas in attendance and "WHO ARE THE MARCUSES?" with Director Matthew Mishory in attendance.


"THE WATER WALKER" is a documentary-animation hybrid that illustrates the journey of an Indigenous youth climate activist, Autumn Peltier. Narrated by Indigenous Hollywood icon Graham Greene, "THE WATER WALKER" is a stunning documentary-animation hybrid tracing the roots, passion and perseverance of leading Indigenous youth climate activist, Autumn Peltier.


"WHO ARE THE MARCUSES?" is Matthew Mishory’s feature documentary about a mysterious and unlikely pair of philanthropists: the unassuming Long Island couple and Holocaust refugees Lottie and Howard Marcus, whose half a billion-dollar gift to Ben-Gurion University in Israel—the single largest charitable donation to the State of Israel in its history—inspired peace and climate action through water technology. The film features Warren Buffett and Israeli President Isaac Herzog, among others.
