Das Partnerfimfestival von Cinemare auf Seiten San Franciscos, das IOFF International Ocean Film Festival, hat sich entschlossen, das traditionell im März des Jahres stattfindende Festival auf einen späteren Zeitpunk des Jahres zu verschieben.
Dear Friends of the IOFF,
We here at the IOFF have made the difficult decision to postpone the festival currently scheduled for March 12th - 15th due to the current status of the COVID-19 virus. Film screenings at all three Bay Area theaters; Cowell Theater in Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture, the Roxie Theater in San Francisco, and the Smith Rafael Film Center in San Rafael have been postponed until further notice.
Out of an abundance of caution, we feel that this is the most prudent choice at this time to ensure the health and safety of our patrons, filmmakers, partners and volunteers. Refunds have been issued to those who have purchased tickets thus far.
Our plan is to schedule the film festival at a later date in the year, so we can showcase the wonderful films that comprise our 2020 Official Selections as well as the submissions of the Student Film Competition. We will keep you posted on when that will be.
We are grateful for the overwhelming support and understanding we have received thus far, and we look forward to seeing you hopefully in the near future. Our oceans need us, and we need you.
In the meantime, please continue to support our mission by supporting the current Ocean Unite campaign of #Love30x30, an ongoing initiative to protect 30% of our oceans by 2030.
For our oceans,
