Mysailing in partnership with Multihull Central, WASPcam, Pantaenius Insurance and All Marine Spares are proud to the present the SEAbbatical Short Film Festival. We are searching for the world’s best cruising short films shot in the spirit of adventure. Capturing the most inspirational experiences caught on camera while cruising on some of the worlds most breathtaking bodies of water.
Video entries are open worldwide to anyone who has filmed an experience, culture, destination and wildlife above or below the water that tells a good story of their voyage or ‘SEAbbatical’. You may be an aspiring filmmaker, or perhaps someone who was in the right place at the right time with the red light flashing.
With the rapid rise of small but technically capable cameras and affordable editing software, anyone who goes cruising is now capable of producing quite stunning videos of life at sea. However it’s getting to these remote destinations that makes the footage and stories so special and so difficult to capture. We want to celebrate the videos and films of those living their dream of adventure on the ocean and in the process, inspiring a new generation to follow.
The judges will select the best films which will be showcased on the big screen at the Village Theatre on the opening night of the Sanctuary Cove Boat Show on May 25 2017. The top films will be awarded the prestigious SEAbbatical Short Film Festival “Brass Bell” plus prizes including a WASPcam.
Multihull Central’s Brent Vaughan explains his concept, “There are some incredible amateur film makers cruising around the world making beautiful videos”
“However if you didn’t go looking you may never know about them, so we want to bring them to boat shows for all to see and give some recognition to their creators”
“I find these videos so inspirational and they help show not only what is out there worth exploring but also that it is very possible for regular people”.
Customers can view them at our Sydney marina in Annandale and they will also be available to purchase through the Mutlihull Central website. We will display them at the upcoming boat shows including the Gold Coast Marine Expo and Sanctuary Cove Boat Show.
