Bringing an evening of seafaring adventure to Stockport in September is The Ocean Film Festival World Tour. Now in its fifth year, the event has become a popular fixture at the town’s Plaza Cinema. Presented will be a brand-new selection of films about the many kinds of people who live for the sea. Standouts include ‘Kiwi Breeze’, which tells the story of a London-based New Zealander who spent nine years building a yacht in his back garden. His first obstacle is to get the 44-foot boat from a suburban street to the London docks, and then comes the even trickier 15,000-mile journey back to his homeland. ‘Touched by the Ocean’ follows two Latvian friends with a second-hand rowing boat, no rowing experience, and a grand plan: to become the first team ever to row from Namibia to Brazil. ‘The Big Wave Project’ centres on a crew of leading surfers as they attempt the sport’s greatest challenge: riding the world’s biggest wave. To be in with a chance of winning two tickets to the film tour at The Plaza, simply enter your details into the form below.
