11th Annual San Francisco
International Ocean Film Festival
Final Deadline Extended to December 10, 2013
We know its a busy time of the year and with the holidays, and all the hustle and bustle, we’re extending our final deadline for submission to December 10th. We hope the extension gives our filmmakers some extra time to make the final edits and put the finishing touches on their films. And for those that may just now be hearing about the festival, there’s still time to submit your film! Good luck and we look forward to seeing your film.
The 11th Annual San Francisco International Ocean Film Festival is proud to be North America’s premier cinemaquatic© film event for ocean-related independent films. Offering a carefully curated group of diverse films that capture the beauty, power and mysteries of the ocean, SFIOFF solicits documentaries, narratives and animated films of varying lengths from around the world. Film topics focus on all aspects of our Blue Planet, including ocean exploration, wildlife, conservation, seafaring adventures, sports and coastal cultures. Mark your calendars! This year’s festival will take place in San Francisco from March 5-9, 2014.
Final Submission Deadline is December 10, 2013.
