ABOUT US

We are eager to inaugurate Wild Oceans Film Fest. In 2020, the Bioparc Foundation organizes this event with an ambitious objective: get the Spaniards to understand the delicate situation of our seas and oceans and the need to react urgently to reverse it. Thus we are going to rely on the documentaries to pass a conservationist message through art and beauty.

 

We begin this adventure in Gijón, at the Cantabric Sea shore, a rough sea with large and wide waves that reflect the strength and conviction of the sailors that sailed its waters. This is the same determination Wild Oceans FilmFest weighs anchor. We are going to bring to Gijón the best movies about oceans, seas and coasts so, through their immense beauty, they inspire to take care and love the nature. Also we will bring on board top level experts who will explain the problems and solutions that they have found through the oceans of the world.

 

An ambitious idea? For sure! You are not the only one loving and trying to defend our seas; from Bioparc Foundation we are going to help you to take action. See you in November!
