Lights! Camera! Action!
What do you get when you combine the world’s greatest expedition motoryachts with video footage of remote, exotic locales and exhilarating high seas adventure? You get the most exciting film festival ever to hit the boating industry: The Nordhavn Film Festival!
At the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show last year, Pacific Asian Enterprises, Inc. (PAE) announced the Nordhavn Film Festival (NFF), a unique way to challenge the scope of Nordhavn cruising video posts. In response, we received commitments from 26 budding filmmakers vying to tell their Nordhavn cruising story. With a $10,000 cash prize at stake, you can bet contestants will be cranking out painstakingly produced documentaries aimed at telling a meaningful narrative, painting a captivating picture, evoking emotion and drawing the viewer into the wonderful world of Nordhavn.
The NFF movie premiere will be a great spectacle, taking place at PAE Headquarters in Dana Point, CA, on Saturday, October 12. The premiere will showcase the films of the 10 finalists, preceded by a sit-down dinner, cocktails and entertainment. The goal of the NFF organizers is to mimic the Hollywood film festivals in terms of aesthetic and esteem. A limited number of tickets are available for Nordhavn owners to purchase at a cost of $50 per person. Please email email@example.com if you are interested in purchasing tickets.
