As part of the Centennial Celebration for Scripps Institution of
Oceanography, two acclaimed San Diego film organizations will host two
outstanding evenings of digital films and slides at the San Diego
Underwater Film Festival. The Undersea Film Exhibition (UFEX) will present
the winners of it's Fourth International Competition. The world famous San
Diego Underwater Photographic Society (SDUPS) will exhibit its first all
digital slide shows. Each evening's unique program of short films and
slide shows will utilize a state of the art large-format digital projection
system. Enjoy our artists' visions of the colorful marine life large and
small, from such exotic locales as the tropical waters of the Indo Pacific
and Caribbean to the temperate waters of North America, and of course our
own backyard, San Diego.
Each evening's performance will be introduced by a keynote speaker.
Sunday night will feature deep sea explorer Ralph White who will guide us
on a dive through the interior of the sunken Titanic taken by Jim Cameron's
ROVs. On Monday, National Geographic's Photographer-in-residence
Emory Kristof will present a spectacular short film on deep sea hydrothermal
vents. The Master of Ceremonies for both evenings will be Chuck Nicklin,
an underwater filmmaker and pioneer of diving in San Diego. Different show each night.
Tickets are $10 per evening, available at local dive shops.
