“We are thrilled to bring the International Ocean Film Tour back to Philadelphia for the second year,” said Debra Wolf Goldstein, executive director of the film festival. “This is a unique, outdoor adventure-focused film experience for all ages. We’re delighted to partner with the Academy for this one-night-only event.”

Presenting the sea in all its diversity and beauty, the program takes viewers on a wondrous voyage of the cosmic ocean.
