Ocean Youth Eco International Film Festival (OYEIFF) is an annual film festival for young filmmakers focusing on raising awareness about ocean protection. 

Short films (no longer than 30 minutes) made by primary and secondary school students will be screened online and on location in Hong Kong (depending on covid restrictions). 

The festival is open to young filmmakers (primary and secondary school students) from around the world. 

The language of the submitted movies can be English or Chinese. In the case of films made in other languages, they must have English or Chinese subtitles.

 

Ocean Youth Eco International Film Festival OYEIFF relates directly to SDG14 Life under Water.

WHO WE ARE

Ema Poposka Founder

Hi, my name is Ema and I am passionate about ocean protection, circular economy and social justice. I believe art and storytelling can create empathy and inspire action.

Charisse Li Head of Marketing

Hi! Most of the social media posts and the OYE promotional materials you’ll be seeing will be created by yours truly! I enjoy figureskating (competitively!), drawing, reading, and baking snickerdoodle cookies. 

Alyssa Leong Head of Events

Hello. I am in Year 9 at RCHK. I like reading books and sometimes drawing things. I joined this club because I want to learn more about protecting the ocean and the animals that live there.

Hrithik Samtani Head of International Relations

Hey everyone. I’m a Y11 student at Renaissance College. I enjoy socialising, debate, and giving back to the community.
