Posted 24 March 2005 - 09:11 AM
Dear Underwater FilmMaker,
We are very pleased to announce the 6th Annual San Diego UnderSea Film Exhibition scheduled for Friday and Saturday evening, October 15 & 16th, 2005 at the state-of-the-art, large-format theater at the San Diego Natural History Museum in Balboa Park. Last year's Film Exhibition at the Oceans 2003 conference / Scripps Centennial, was an overwhelming success and we hope this year's will be even better.
Each evening’s program will consist of 14 to 16 short films, submitted by both accomplished professional and aspiring amateur underwater filmmakers and videographers.
To enter a film, edit a presentation and submit it to us so that it is RECEIVED no later than July 1, 2005. Submissions are limited to three films/videos per filmmaker. However, only two films will be allowed to be presented, regardless of the judges decisions, to create a wider diversity of showcased film makers.
Films may contain a suitable narrative and/ or thematic soundtrack. Filmmakers are also encouraged to introduce their film on the night of the show. No film can be longer than five minutes and at least 50% of the footage must be underwater. Please ensure that no part of your film infringes upon any rights, whether music, visual footage, personal, copyright, or any other legal right.
We are accepting only mini-DV NTSC tapes . Please submit a master copy, as these will be the show tapes. Please leave a 10-15 sec. blank leader at the beginning of your submissions. More than one film may be entered on a tape. If you have questions regarding the submission, feel free to contact us. To have tapes returned after the Film Exhibition, please include a proper sized, self-addressed, stamped envelope with proper postage. The San Diego UnderSea Film Exhibition is not responsible for lost or damaged tapes.
Film selection will be made by the 1st of August by our judges, who are renowned in the fields of visual arts and media. No entrant will be allowed to participate in the actual judging of the films/videos submitted for consideration.
The San Diego UnderSea Film Exhibition reserves the right to use the films for the promotion of this event. All rights will remain with the owners of the films.
