Beneath the Waves Film Festival Screenings

FORT LAUDERDALE-DAVIE, Fla.– April 11, 2014 –

The Nova Southeastern University (NSU) Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale will host the internationally acclaimed Beneath the Waves Film Festival. The Festival will feature short films ranging in topics from coral reef restoration to humans’ relationship with the ocean to the creative force behind art in marine science.

The Film Festival screening will take place in the Museum of Art’s Horvitz Auditorium and will be followed by a panel of expert marine scientists from NSU’s Oceanographic Center.

This free event, which is open to the entire South Florida community, is scheduled from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 23rd.  The NSU Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale is located at One East Las Olas Blvd., Fort Lauderdale.

Through the use of stunning footage to tell inspiring stories, the Beneath the Waves Film Festival is intended to raise awareness of marine conservation issues locally and globally.  Started by marine science graduate students and scientists who saw the urgency to create a more powerful means of communicating scientific research, the Film Festival has attracted hundreds of films from all corners of the world.  Such events have connected thousands of people from all backgrounds with the stories and issues facing the oceans.  The aim of this screening of the Beneath the Waves Film Festival is to bridge the gap between science and the public in a way that inspires awe and action.

The Film Festival is one of several events being sponsored by NSU’s Oceanographic Center Student Government Association in honor of Earth Week.  Other events include a waterway cleanup in John U. Lloyd State Park Saturday (Saturday, April 19th) and the awards ceremony for the 6th annual graduate student photography contest, Shutter Shark (Friday, April 25th.)

Because of limited seating, those interested in attending are strongly encouraged to RSVP via an online service. You can find the online registration HERE or by cutting and pasting the following URL into your Web browser:
