The first San Diego UnderSea Film Exhibition was first organized in 2000 by a small group who had been meeting at Chuck Nicklin’s dive shop to share information on shooting and editing underwater video. In the past twenty years, it has grown into one of the most prestigious underwater film festivals worldwide. Help us make the 20th festival the best ever by submitting your underwater film! Our venue is state-of-the-art Irwin M. Jacobs Qualcomm Hall, and last year was a sellout with over 500 people each night.

Our approach includes affordable tickets, the opportunity to share your work with an appreciative audience, and a panel of independent judges who are distinguished in their fields.

Among the renowned videographers whose work has been displayed are Howard and Michele Hall, Flip Nicklin, Leandro Blanco, Terry Maas, Shawn Heinrichs, and Simon Spear.
