Have A View San Diego, From Under The Sea!

So, you think you’re a townie? You know every nook and cranny of our sweet city and its hoods?

Well, allow us to give you a fresh, new view of San Diego – from under the sea!

All you have to do to catch this new twist of SD, is snag you some tix ($20) and show up to the San Diego Undersea Film Exhibition (SDUFEX) going down at the Irwin M. Jacobs Qualcomm Hall, Friday, October 6th and Saturday, October 7th!

This is the 18th annual SDUFEX and one of the most prestigious underwater film festivals worldwide. As an incorporated nonprofit organization, a portion of proceeds from the event will go to local ocean-related environmental groups.
