About the event

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.

 THE BBFF MISSION 

The Big Blue Film Fest is hosted at the Hatfield Marine Science Center, OSU’s coastal research campus which has operated in Newport Oregon for 58 years. The campus is dedicated to education and exploration with classes, internships, research and community outreach. Our goal is to inspire, educate and captivate our audience members with science and ocean entertainment. Help us tell the stories that will shape our future understanding of one of our planet’s most important resources.

 THE GLADYS VALLEY MARINE STUDIES BUILDING 

The GVMSB on the Hatfield campus boasts the confluence of the marine arts and sciences that enhances student access to marine education at the coast with a contemporary auditorium, collaborative research labs, and an innovation lab. The building hosts permanent and temporary art exhibits, creating the perfect blend of science, art, and nature. This is where filmmakers and community members will mingle at our Friday night mixer.

 WORKING TOGETHER 

The film festival is brought to you in partnership with Oregon State University, Hatfield Marine Science Center, Marine Studies Initiative, OSU Productions and community partners.
