Embers Aquatics releases dates for new International Swim Film Festival

Embers Acquatics Film Festival

To celebrate the recent growth in outdoor swimming, Embers Aquatics has launched a new International Swim Film Festival focused solely on sharing swimmers’ stories from around the world. The event will feature short films and guest speakers assembled to inspire all open water swimmers, whether you’re just starting out or an experienced marathon swimmer.

Full details of films and speakers will be published shortly. Meanwhile, Embers Aquatics has booked the following dates and venues to give swimmers as much chance as possible to book the festival into their diaries.

  • Sat 22 June, The Lighthouse, Glasgow
  • Tues 25 June, Storytelling Centre, Edinburgh
  • Sat 13 July, National Museum, Cardiff
  • Tues 16 July, Brunel Museum, London

Embers is a Social Enterprise based in the UK that trains swimming teachers and water safety champions in developing countries. 97% drownings happen in developing countries with 372,000 people drowning every year – equivalent to someone drowning every 80 seconds. All profits from the film festival will fund Embers International Work.
