Enjoy film explorations of our rivers and oceans at the second annual River & Ocean Film Festival on April 25, 2015. This event, held in conjunction with the RainFest River & Ocean Days and the Washington Coast Clean-up, celebrates the freshwater and marine environments of the west end of the Olympic Peninsula. Short films from the Olympic Peninsula and beyond will highlight the beauty and opportunity of this region, as well as some of the issues faced by its marine and freshwater habitats and the human community.

The event is free and open to all. The selected films are primarily shot in a documentary style and are family-friendly.

This year we are partnering with Forks High School Senior Parents, who are cooking up an authentic Latino dinner to include chicken enchilada, tamales, rice, beans, chips and salsa, and a drink. Come get a meal and enjoy the films while you eat. Dessert, coffee, and bottled water will also be available for sale, also to benefit the Forks High School Senior Parents.
