Cairns Underwater Photo Competition
Cairns Underwater Film Festival is a celebration of underwater photography and filmmaking. The festival combines an underwater film and photo competition (which focuses on the rich and diverse beauty of the Great Barrier Reef and Coral Sea) with a film festival showcasing underwater imagery from around the world.
Run by a team of passionate volunteers the festival screens a combination of local and international talent, giving filmmakers a chance to showcase their talent in the only Australian festival of its kind. The Cairns Underwater Film Festival delights those who love to explore the underwater world, appreciate nature and have a passion for world-class imagery.
All profits from the film festival will be donated back to the community through selected volunteer organisations, scientific research, conservation groups and charities.
The festival is made possible by generous local, national and international sponsors.
