Jason Perryman, Producer & Director
24 minutes
Country: South Africa

Tiger Sharks are regarded as one of the most dangerous ocean predators. In South Africa, Walter Bernardis, a leading expert on these animals is taking us on an amazing adventure that he has been doing safely for years, free diving with Tiger Sharks. This film explores Walter free diving with Tigers Sharks, tigers caught in beach nets to separate swimmers from sharks and the excitement of these majestic ancient creatures. Walter shares his philosophy, 'the best Shark is not a dead shark but a live Shark".

Death of a Deity
333 Productions
Joe Romeiro & Bill Fisher, Producers
8 minutes
* New York City Premier

Sharks, once the mighty rulers of the sea, are now facing the legitimate threat of extinction. Seeking to dispel the myths and sensationalism surrounding them, Death of a Deity submerges you into the world of the shark and shows you why they are in desperate need of our help.

White Shark Cafe
Sean Aronson, Producer & Director
24 minutes
* New York City Premier

White Shark Café tells the curious tale of great white shark research. The film explores the new technology that allows researchers to track the shark's migration patterns and these new findings are helping to change the image of sharks from scary creatures to fascinating animals.

Manta Ray of Hope
BlueSphere Media
Shawn Heinricks, Producer
7 minutes
* New York City Premiere

"Manta Ray of Hope" takes the viewer on a breathtaking journey to some of the most remote and exotic places on earth, to personally experience the magnificence of these rays. Through the eyes of naturalists and researchers, the people who know these animals best, we begin to unravel the mysteries of the manta. We experience their joy of new discoveries and also their pain, watching mantas they know fished in front of their very eyes.

We then go deep undercover, from the remote fishing villages to the bustling cities, to better understand and expose the trade that is threatening their very future. And, we challenge the medicinal health 'claims' that are driving this destructive trade. Finally, as a ray of hope, we meet those who are making a difference, from scientists, to politicians, to local businessmen, and learn how we all can make a difference for these magical creatures too.

Beachmaster of Avo Nuevo
Christopher J. Gervais, Executive Producer
Stan Minasian, Producer & Director

The northern Pacific Elephant Seal once numbered in the tens of thousands, reduced to just a few hundred animals by hunting the species is a success story as it has recovered from near extinction. This film will be completed in 2014 and will make its debut at the WCFF.

Shark Culture
333 Productions
Joe Romeiro & Bill Fisher, Producers
Duration: 8 minutes
* New York City Premier

As humans, our fascination with Sharks is obvious. Whether they are loved or fearedthey captivate our attention. In many ways they are ingrained in our culture, and in our lives. Unfortunately, sharks have an undeserved reputation. They are not the monsters they are believed to be, but rather a critical element in the natural order. Join us, and witness a connection between shark and human never thought possible.

Befriending Giants
Shawn Heinrichs, Producer
Blue Sphere Media
6 minutes
* Award Winner for Best Short Category

This short film brings to attention the controversy surrounding the recently discovered Oslop, Philippines whale shark situation because of the feeding of the sharks that accompanies the tourism. However, as with all things in life, there are many strong opinions and diverse viewpoints. And as such, there is much to be learned by opening our minds to alternative perspective.

Day of the Tiger
Stan Waterman Producer
6 minutes
Country: Bahamas

This vintage film ( 1960's) brings the audience close to "Scarface" a gentle 18 foot Tiger Shark whom Stan Waterman befriended and filmed for years. It is an example that sharks are not the "killers" and "monsters" that some people have been brought up to believe.
