Gray’s Reef National Marine Sanctuary will present the Ocean Film Festival on Friday and Saturday, Jan. 29-30, 2016, at the Lucas Theatre and Trustees Theater in down Savannah.
“This year’s film festival is slated to be the best ever,” said Gray’s Reef’s Michelle Riley.
For the first time, the festival will include 3-D movies, including “Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Secret Ocean 3D.”
“When I was introduced to the new technology developed specifically for us, I immediately understood that this was a breakthrough in underwater filming that would allow us to capture extraordinary, never-before-seen images that I had never witnessed in my 69 years of diving,” Cousteau said.
The wonderful sports film, “The Current,” features people of all abilities who enjoy adaptive sports and shows participants scuba diving and ocean kayaking alongside whales and dolphins in exotic locations, including Bimini, the Bahamas, Mexico and Hawaii.
“Another film we will present is “The Crystal Labyrinth,” featuring cave diver and explorer Brian Kakuk,” Riley said. “The film is a fascinating look at the Bahamas’ cave network.”
