Press release

The San Diego Undersea Film Exhibition (SDUFEX) is now accepting entries for its 2021 film festival.

SDUFEX is the largest film festival in the world dedicated solely to underwater films. In 2020 our virtual festival had over 20,000 views from attendees in over 50 countries.

No Entry Fees are required for submission but at least 50% of each film’s footage must be shot underwater. A distinguished panel of independent judges will review each film.

There are two submission categories, consisting of either a 5 or a 10-minute duration limit and a maximum of two films (total) per filmmaker may be submitted.

All films must be submitted through FilmFreeway by June 15, 2021

The online version of the 2021 San Diego Undersea Film Exhibition is scheduled for October 15-24. If possible, SDUFEX also hopes to host an in person festival on October 8th and 9th at the Irwin M. Jacobs Qualcomm Hall in San Diego.
