Ocean Feature Films

Since film making began, the ocean has been the setting or the subject of a number of feature films.  This section of OpenOceans Global’s portal is the place where the ocean community can link to some of the best ocean films of all-time, and maybe a healthy list of other ocean films, too!  Here are 20 great ocean films.  Do they all belong on the Top 20 list?  Only you can tell us!  At some point we will have an online poll to determine which movies really do belong in the top 20.

  • Clicking on each title will link to the Internet Movie Data Base and a trailer for the film (if available)

The list of movies on this page is not considered comprehensive. If you have suggestions for ocean feature films that we should add to the list, please let us know by filling out the form at the bottom of this page!
