A celebration of our waters through film and visual arts

Start your decade off with a splash and join us for the inaugural Wave Film Fest.

Immerse yourself in the underwater world through the eyes of world renowned underwater filmmakers, photographers, and artists on February 29, 2020.

This celebration of our global ocean will include screenings of original short films, panel sessions, roundtables, meet and greet moments with ocean conservation champions and organizations, and an exciting evening event where great minds can connect.

Start a wave of change with us and connect through creativity, collaboration, and conservation at Columbia College Chicago as we share visual stories and explore ways to love and protect Earth's precious aquatic resources.

Together, we will work toward creating a bluer, more sustainable future with 20/20 vision in 2020.

Counting down to February 29

We'd like to thank DocYourWorld, Columbia College Chicago, the Department of Cinema and Television Arts at Columbia College Chicago, the Department of Science and Mathematics at Columbia College Chicago, and Microcosm for helping us create a professional and inspirational event that's accessible to the public.

Without their support, we wouldn't be able to bring you this exclusive dive into our underwater world.
