International Ocean Film Tour
Lanzarote hosts the International Ocean Film Tour, the most important film festival on seas and oceans in Europe.
The International Ocean Film Tour comes to Lanzarote for the first time and it will not do it alone. Europe's number one environmental film festival on the oceans is opening its headquarters on the island of volcanoes to screen 150 minutes of international documentaries on the seven seas. In addition to the five works from three continents, the gala premiere of this landing at the Jameos del Agua will be full of novelties and surprises, as well as two exceptional guests: Doctor Alicia Herrera Ulibarri and the environmental consultant Ezequiel Navío.
"It is an event that places us at the forefront in the fight to curb climate change and guarantee the survival of the most fragile ecosystems on the planet" - Maria Dolores Corujo
The president of the Cabildo de Lanzarote, María Dolores Corujo, has advanced that the event that will take place next Thursday in the Auditorium of the volcanic tube transformed by César Manrique "is an event that places us at the forefront in the fight to curb climate change and ensure the survival of the most fragile ecosystems on the planet".
About the International Ocean Film Tour
The screening of 'Shobe surf', 'The deep med', 'Storm ride', 'Into the ice' and 'Cold wáter therapy', which will travel to 12 Spanish cities and 17 countries in 240 international events, will be spun from the experience, anecdotes, studies and knowledge of two greats of the oceans, lovers of the seas and ambassadors for the protection of the planet.
Ezequiel Navío is one of the best examples in the Canary Islands of unwavering defence of the seas and oceans. Naturalist, professional diver, sports diving instructor and environmental consultant, he began his conservationist work in 1985 in Madrid with the Group for the Recovery of Native Fauna (GREFA). For more than 37 years, he has not stopped fighting for the planet and those of us who inhabit it.
