The Festival was created in 1974 by Daniel Mercier and the Spondyle Club team. It programs underwater audiovisual productions that promote the wealth of the underwater world, that represent ecology and preservation and that create public awareness about the marine environment. Alongside the festival, the “Ocean Forum,” devoted to the subjects of abysses and biodiversity, is held. This round table is open to both the general public and experts. With many competitive categories for film, photography, literature, websites, music, and more, the festival awards prizes in excess of 35,000 Euros each year.
