2017 Gray's Reef Film Festival
14th annual Gray's Reef Film Festival!
Thursday, February 2 - Sunday, February 5, 2017
in Savannah AND now, on Tybee Island!
Save these dates!Last year we brought Savannah's first underwater 3D films to town and it was a smashing success. So, we've added a second full night of films, both nights will be at the Trustees Theater!
And... we're presenting a Sunday matinee at the Tybee Post Theater with award winning films courtesy of the San Francisco Ocean Film Festival.
This year's festival will again feature inspiring films from local, national, and emerging filmmakers with the aim to instill marine conservation and ocean stewardship in Georgia’s coastal residents. These films allow us to explore the creatures and beauty of the sea, the complexity of the marine ecosystem, and our maritime heritage.
We believe our relationship with the ocean is crucial to sustaining a healthy environment for Georgia’s underwater treasure: Gray’s Reef. Therefore, our theme this year is “Our Community, Our Ocean.” In what ways do we impact the ocean? In what ways does the ocean influence our community?
And, on the live entertainment front, you won't want to miss this year's VIP Founders' Party. If the techno-gods are with us, YOU will come as close to experiencing a dive on Gray's Reef as is possible without getting wet! Want a hint? Okay, what comes between 3D and actual reality?
