       Less than Two Weeks Until Opening Day!
Terra-Antarctica-Kayakers-a.jpgLess than two weeks to go until opening day of the 7th annual San Francisco Ocean Film Festival, February 3-7, at Theatre 39 on PIER 39.  With more than 50 Films, ranging from sharks to surfing, island culture to conservation and much more, this year's Festival is set to be the most action-packed yet.

The Festival is divided into 12 programs, which each feature 3-5 films as well as the opportunity to interact with filmmakers. 

Isla-Holbox-Whale-Shark-mou.jpgMore than 25 filmmakers will be onsite to lead Q&A sessions during film screenings, as well as to mingle at the Meet the Filmmakers Reception at Aquarium of the Bay on Friday, February 5.  Participating filmmakers for the 2010 Festival include:

Individual program tickets, Film Program, Festival Passes, VIP Passes, Discounted Parking Passes and more are available to purchase online.

                          Benefit Drawing

Purchase your $10 benefit raffle drawing ticket today, for the chance to win an adventure of a lifetime, compliments of O.A.R.S. Imagine paddling alongside orcas as you and a guest spend four days exploring the magnificent coastline of western British Columbia in your new Kokatat TecTour Anorak jackets, returning each night to gourmet meals at a seaside lodge. In the summer, more than 150 orcas gather in the Johnstone Strait to the northeast of Vancouver Island.

The drawing will be held following the last screening on Sunday, February 7th. The winner-and it could be you-need not be present to win.
