First of all, from the organisation, we would like to thank all the participants who have sent their works to the competition of our 45th edition of the International Underwater Film Festival of Donostia - San Sebastián. You make it possible for CIMASUB to be an event with a high quality and variety that is highly valued by the public that visits us and that grows every year.
Since 1975, the Underwater Activities Section of the Real Sociedad de Fútbol has been working to ensure that this competition grows and reaches as many people as possible, and it is your work that achieves the main objective of our competition, to make the underwater world known and to raise awareness of respect and care for our seas and oceans.
