aMORE - Festival of the Sea

aMORE* festival of the Sea is first festival within the region which is entirely dedicated to sea and which intertwines and brings together art, culture, science, sports and entertainment.

The Festival’s goal is to draw attention to environmental, social and cultural importance of marine ecosystems as well as to human activities causing their degradation all with the goal of their preservation.

aMORE aims to raise the level of public awareness and to improve the relations developed and cultivated between local communities, visitors, tourists and sea. aMORE wishes to contribute to the activation of more mindful and responsible communities and tourists / travellers, whose collective action can contribute towards fulfilling The Global Goals for Sustainable Development, in order to preserve this priceless and crucial resource of ours.

Festival wishes to instigate networking and to support all the initiatives which are in some way related to sea, contributing to its preservation and valorisation.

This year’s Festival edition offers international documentary movie screenings, a photo contest, two exhibitions (photo and multimedia), open lectures, workshops, a seabed cleaning action and poetry reading night.

It starts the 8th of June with the screening of Planet Ocean  by Yann Arthus-Bertrand, Michael Pitiot.

 “Put your finger into the sea you are connected to the whole world.”
