We spent a great time in Marseille during the last week. The Festival de l’Image Sous-Marine is not only a photo contest as a lot of people think. It features lots of films (short and long) all around the underwater world. The screening of these films starts on Wednesday and goes through to Saturday. Sunday is the last day of the festival when all winning films and photos are showcased.
Concerning the films, I had 3 favourites in the lot I’ve watched :
In the Dragon’s Lair is a incredible documentary on giant Nile crocodiles in the clear waters of the Okavango Delta.
The Great White sharks of Guadalupe is one of 5 documentaries of Adventure Ocean Quest. A series produced by the German ZDF. This film won Gold this year in Marseille. It’s just wonderful to see these 3 freedivers in the water with the Great Whites.
Under The Pole makes you freeze right on your chair! Diving under the ice of the North Pole carrying all the stuff over the shelf! Wow, what an adventure!
My Mr.Hungry and Chris’ lionfish placed both 23th in the colour category
