Maritime Film Festival

January 17 @ 12:00 pm - January 19 @ 10:00 pm

This film festival is a unique event for the UK, organised by Woodbridge Riverside Trust and the Wolverstone Project, it is a celebration of yachting and maritime films. During the three days we will be showing a wide range of films celebrating the very best in yachting and maritime films from all eras, but with a focus also on the East and the way in which it has inspired filmmakers.
