Entry deadlines for the 2008 San Francisco Ocean Film Festival are coming up fast!
General deadline: September 30
Late deadline: October 31
Celebrating its 5th Anniversary in 2008, The San Francisco Ocean Film Festival is the premiere event in North America dedicated to using film to enhance public appreciation for our marine ecosystems. For the past four years the organization has produced an acclaimed festival of ocean-themed films from all over the world that are largely unavailable to the general public. Themes range from ocean science and industry to sports and adventure. The films are not only intended to entertain the audience, but more importantly, to educate and encourage active participation in ocean-specific environmental efforts.
Films should be related to the following themes:
* Ocean Sports
* Environmental Issues
* Marine Sciences
* Ocean Exploration
* Coastal and Island Cultural History
All films selected for the 2008 Festival are eligible to compete for the following awards:
* Adventure Award – for the best told adventures in, on, or around the sea
* Environmental Award for the film that best depicts an environmental issue, or is most likely to inspire action
* Wildlife Award for the film that offers the most original or insightful expression of an aspect of marine life
* Culture Award for the best film portraying people for whom the sea is intrinsic to their lives
