OCEAN VALOUR

Lifelong friends Tom Rainey and Lawrence Walters set out from Manhatten, New York, to row 4,000 miles across the North Atlantic to Salcombe in Devon. Battling 80ft waves, brutal sleep deprivation, jellyfish, sharks and some unpleasant fungus, the young Brits spend a gruelling 93 days at sea, breaking two world records and raising over £130,000 for the Brain Tumour Charity in memory of Tom’s dad. 

CAMEL FINDS WATER

Sometimes the biggest dreams have the humblest origins. When surfer Trevor Gordon discovers the remains of a tiny dilapidated boat in a landlocked field, he dreams of restoring her to her original glory and sailing her to find remote waves in British Columbia. But after 1,000 hours of work, will Camel be up to the challenge? 

TIDAL

Filmmaker: Trygve Heide

While recovering from a horrific BASE-jumping accident, Lisa Beasley rediscovers her childhood love of diving and the ocean, using Cape Town’s tidal pools to heal both mentally and physically. But when these unique spaces become under threat, Lisa embarks on a journey to protect the marine life that is flourishing there.

A CORNER OF THE EARTH

Filmmaker: Spencer Frost, Frost Films
25 minutes

Struggling with the harsh realities of competitive surfing, pro surfer Fraser Dovell goes in search of wild waves in the breathtakingly beautiful and treacherously remote Arctic. With extreme elements, the magnificent northern lights and plenty of close calls, this is a stunning cinematic celebration of a brutal northern winter, and Fraser reaches a new appreciation of what it means to be a surfer.

BARE EXISTENCE

Filmmaker: Max Lowe

Polar Bears International (PBI) is a team of scientists dedicated to protecting polar bears and their habitat.

SWIMMING WITH GENTLE GIANTS

Filmmaker: Stefan Andrews
9 minutes

Over the past two decades, wildlife photographer Scott Portelli has devoted himself to documenting and capturing the behaviour of humpback whales in the South Pacific.

STREET SURFERS

Not all surfers have access to the sea. In landlocked Johannesburg, Thabo Mouti and Mokete Mokete swoop the streets to collect plastic and paper for recycling.
