BLUE Ocean Film Festival & Conservation Event

Earlier this week, OceanGate arrived in California, marking the kick-off of the 2012 Monterey Expedition. To begin the expedition, OceanGate is attending the BLUE Ocean Film Festival & Conservation Event as a sponsor. This event, which occurs every two years, gathers ocean leaders, filmmakers, photographers, scientists, explorers, entertainment executives and the general public to honor the best in ocean filmmaking, to learn more about the issues facing our oceans, and to collaborate on improving the future of our oceans and humanity. As a provider of manned submersible solutions, OceanGate plays the critical role of enabling access to our oceans for exploration, research and observation. Our manned submersible Antipodes, in particular, is very well suited to provide media and content providers a platform from which to capture the images necessary to effectively communicate their ocean-focused messages.

BLUE is especially exciting this year, as it will feature the groundbreaking event, the DEEP BLUE initiative. Recognizing manned submersibles integral role in telling the ocean’s story, OceanGate’s co-founder, Guillermo Sohnlein spearheaded the effort to display these unique vessels for the attendees and general public. DEEP BLUE will also include industry conferences such as, “Into to Piloting a Sub,” “Oceanography in the Abyss: Exploring the Deepest Ocean: Been There, Done That- What’s Next?” and “All the World’s a Stage: Filmmakers Front Seat to the Ocean Depths.” In keeping with the deep theme, Don Walsh and James Cameron, the only two living humans to have visited Earth’s deepest point, will be recognized with Lifetime Achievement Awards for their contributions to Ocean Exploration and Ocean Filmmaking, respectively.

The BLUE Ocean Film Festival & Conservation Event will prove to be an incredible opportunity for OceanGate to meet with other ocean leaders and expose them to the opportunity to utilize our manned submersible solutions for the purpose of storytelling. Check back with our blog for updates throughout the week, as we continue our expedition in Monterey, California.
