By Eric Hanauer
Thirty two short underwater films, produced by leading professional and amateur videographers from around the world, will be highlighted at the 12th Annual San Diego UnderSea Film Exhibitionin Qualcomm Hall’s big screen auditorium on Friday and Saturday evenings, September 9 and 10, 2011. Starting at 7:00 pm, each evening will feature 16 different films, most in high definition, limited to 5 minutes each of fast paced action. A state of the art digital projection system will bring the world beneath the surfaceto the eyes of the audience.
This exhibition is unique because there are no entry fees and no prizes, except for the prestige of having a film chosen. An independent panel of three distinguished judges will select the best films among many international entries. Each year the bar is raised in terms of quality and excitement. From the kelp forests of California to the coral islands of Indonesia, from the sperm whales of the Caribbean to the mantas of the Maldives, there will be something for everybody. Also shown for the first time will be the winner of Capture the World, an international video competition.
