14th Annual San Diego UnderSea Film Exhibition

Friday and Saturday evenings, October 11th and 12th, 7:00 pm at Qualcomm Hall

San Diego’s original and most prestigious undersea video exhibition returns to Irwin M. Jacobs Qualcomm Hall for its 14th annual two night run on Friday and Saturday, October 11 and 12, at 7 PM. This year’s Masters of Ceremonies are the world’s leading underwater cinematography team: Howard and Michele Hall. For over two decades, they have traveled the globe shooting award winning documentaries in iMax, 3D, and on international television. Howard will also be presenting his latest film, “Leviathan,” a stunning look at humpback whales in the clear waters of Tonga.

These two amazing evenings of underwater films were produced by videographers from around the world, and shot on locations including Indonesia, the Maldives, Mexico, the Red Sea, Papua New Guinea, the Caribbean, and our own California coast. A different program will be presented each evening, consisting of 15 fast-paced, 5 minute videos. They will be shown at Qualcomm Hall’s 530 seat auditorium, with its state-of-the-art, high definition digital projection system.

An independent panel of three distinguished judges have chosen the best 30 films among some 70 entries from around the world. This year’s judges are diving industry professionals Bonnie Cardone, Karen Ellerbrock, and Andy Sallmon.

Previous years’ shows have been sellouts. Tickets are available online for $15 per evening at www.sdufex.com. It’s open seating; the auditorium opens 30 minutes prior to the show. Free covered parking is on site on the Qualcomm campus.

SDUFEX is incorporated as a 501c3 nonprofit organization. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Birch Aquarium at Scripps.
