The International Underwater Film Series offers a unique opportunity to explore the beauty and discover the secrets of the oceans. Free underwater screenings, exhibitions and educational activities for all audiences.
The wait is over for lovers of the underwater world. The International Underwater Film Series, CIMASUB, celebrates its TOUR 23/24 with an exciting programme that will dazzle lovers of the oceans and nature. Admission is free, and everyone is invited to join this unique experience that brings together the world's best photographers and videographers.
In the film sessions, viewers will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in a fascinating underwater world through a selection of audiovisual works. They will take us on a journey through a variety of marine destinations. From the seagrass beds of Florida to the depths of the ocean in Indonesia. Topics such as the importance of coral reef conservation, the threat of invasive species in the Mediterranean, the impact of stress on modern life and the relationship between local fishermen and whale sharks will be explored. Through captivating visual storytelling, viewers will witness the beauty and fragility of our marine ecosystems. We will be reminded of the importance of appreciating and protecting our precious natural heritage in the ocean, and how our actions can influence the conservation of marine life for future generations. An inspiring film festival that will invite us to reflect on our relationship with the underwater world and our responsibility to care for it.
CIMASUB is not just about underwater cinema; it is a comprehensive event that encompasses multiple dimensions of the relationship between humans and the ocean. Accompanying the film screenings is a stunning underwater photography exhibition that opens its doors to immerse visitors in the mysterious seabed and the complex relationship between mankind and nature.
The Underwater Txikiziklo
CIMASUB's commitment to education and environmental awareness is manifested in the Txikiziklo Submarino, an educational tour that has involved more than 2,500 primary school students in Gipuzkoa in 2023. This programme aims to promote ocean conservation and encourage children's perception of everything that surrounds the sea, offering a unique experience to the children of the schools that visit us.
With the slogan "Building a blue future", CIMASUB reinforces the idea that building a "blue future" involves training new generations to value and care for our seas and oceans. In short, this slogan reflects CIMASUB's determination to be a beacon of hope and change in the fight for the preservation of marine ecosystems. The event is organised by Subacuáticas Real Sociedad, which since 1975 has been dedicated to publicising the underwater world and raising awareness of respect and care for our seas and oceans through the dissemination of audiovisual works. CIMASUB has become an important channel of communication between the ambassadors of the sea, underwater photographers and videographers, and the thousands of people who visit the cinemas where this prestigious international event is held, which every year is a reality thanks to the participation of the town councils of the towns we visit, the Royal Society Foundation, the Provincial Council of Gipuzkoa, the Basque Government and other sponsoring and collaborating entities.
The CIMASUB TOUR 23/24 promises to be an unforgettable experience that invites us to appreciate and protect the underwater world and to reflect on our responsibility to care for it.
