BLUE Festival Brings Ocean Films, Conservation to St. Pete

St.Pete/Clearwater (Nov. 3, 2014) - Given St. Pete/Clearwater's reliance on healthy waterways, it's only fitting that the area welcomes the world's premiere ocean-focused event, BLUE Ocean Film Festival & Conservation Summit, to St. Petersburg this week.

BLUE, which runs through Sunday, features the likes of James Cameron and Jeremy Irons as they debut films associated with ocean exploration and conservation. Events from workshops, film screenings, lectures and parties, like the blue carpet awards gala, will be held at numerous venues around St. Pete and are open to the public.
