The winning entries will be featured at the Festival’s 15thannual celebration March 8 – 12, 2018. Entry details may be found online at www.oceanfilmfest.org.

 

“Although some would deny it, the threat to our oceans, which means to our planet, is undeniable,” said Ana Blanco, Executive Director for the International Ocean Film Festival. “For 15 years, independent filmmakers from around the world have brought their talents to bear, and their passion, in love for and respect for the oceans. There has never been a time more important for those talents and passions to unite on screen for our audiences, and our world.”

 

Submissions may include films of all genres – documentaries, narratives, shorts, and animation films of all lengths. Subjects may focus on all oceanographic themes including but not limited to: ocean exploration, wildlife, environmental, conservation, oceanography, seafaring adventures, maritime issues, ocean sports and coastal cultures.

“I jokingly call the show ‘Charlie Rose for the LGBT world,” said David Perry, Producer/Host of Ten Percent. “We may be only ten percent of the general population, in round numbers, but our issues are one hundred percent front-and-center in today’s world. Whether it’s the fight for marriage equality or debates about gay clergy or the right to serve openly in uniform, our issues are reflective of the world at large.”

“David has a well-known and unique voice that bridges many communities,” said Jason Holmes, Executive Producer at Comcast Hometown Network. “David’s talents and the launch of Ten Percent further enhance Comcast’s commitment to our communities and Comcast Hometown Network’s compelling, community-based regional programming,”

The Rosie’s will be present for Seniors Day from 11am – 3pm and will speak at a Salute to Seniors Forum at 11:15am and 1pm.

“We are so honored that the Rosie’s will be a part of this year’s fair on two occasions,” said Dana Stoehr, CEO of the San Mateo County Event Center & Fair. “Anytime the Rosie’s are present is a special time.
