Big Blue Film Fest

The Big Blue Film Fest (previously the Hatfield Marine Science Center Film Festival) showcases ocean-themed films at the confluence of the marine sciences, humanities and arts. Hosted at the Hatfield Marine Science Center (HMSC), Oregon State University’s premiere marine sciences campus in Newport, Oregon, the festival not only engages the community and provides a lively weekend of research-based entertainment, but it also raises awareness about marine issues and how we might solve them.

The event will be in-person from January 27-28, 2023. The primary venues include the Hatfield Marine Science Center and the new Gladys Valley Marine Studies Building (GVMSB) auditorium.

Enjoy a wide range of films, Q&As with filmmakers and special guests, mixers with filmmakers and local experts, and an awards ceremony to celebrate our wonderful ocean-themed films.
