Surfers For Climate is hosting their new film ‘Great Ocean Love’ as well as panel discussions focused on the boundless oceanic opportunities for addressing the climate crisis and we’d love for you to join us.  
Part documentary, part road trippin’ surf flick, Great Ocean Love is all about the saltwater women of the deep south and their shared love for the rugged coastline we call home. The film follows Belinda Baggs, Linley Hurrell and Lilly Pollard on a journey of discovery that features local women who love the coastline like they do, as well as a whale dreaming story that can teach all of us a few lessons on why we need to protect the places we love. 

Make sure to grab your tickets for a night of conversation and big ocean love!

Tickets: $10

'Two World's, One Ocean'

ALICK AND ALBERT explores the intersection of art, science and nature. At an exhibition of Torres Strait art in Monaco, artist-activist, Alick Tipoti, invites Prince Albert of Monaco to Badu Island.  To Alick's surprise, Albert accepts the invitation but it takes some years before he is able to visit Badu with a delegation from the Monaco Oceanographic Museum. 


Albert stays at the local motel, goes reef diving with Alick, meets with artists and talks with Elders. The two friends reflect on the similarities of their tiny communities, worlds apart but interconnected by the ocean.  They agree to raise awareness about the global tsunami of plastic pollution and rising sea levels facing the Torres Strait.


Special Festival Guest Alick Tipoti will be at the screening and taking part in a Q&A afterwards, thanks for the generous support of Skytrans with Alick’s travel to Sydney.Don’t miss hearing from this world—renowned artist and activist, who is on very friendly terms with Prince Albert II of Monaco, working together to create solutions to the climate crisis that is affecting the oceans and the unique Torres Strait Islands.   

Tickets: $10 / $5 children and concessions
