One Planet: The 19th Annual International Ocean Film Festival

On this edition of Your Call’s One Planet Series, we're discussing this year’s International Ocean Film Festival in San Francisco, which will be in person this year after two years online.

The four-day festival, which begins on April 7th, features more than 50 films from around the globe covering a wide range of issues, including coastal island culture and conservation, the true cost of deep sea mining, and fish with superpowers. How do films help us celebrate and protect the ocean?
