KQED has ten free tickets to give away to the 15th Annual International Ocean Film Festival, a four-day festival that runs March 8-11. Featuring over 48 ocean-inspired films from around the world, the screenings will be held at the Cowell Theater and Roxie Theater in San Francisco and the Lark Theater in Larkspur. And two of our very own Deep Look short films have been selected for this year’s festival. One film puts the spotlight on the Californian grunion and their unusual mating habits on the beach (Saturday, March 10 at 4pm.) The other short focuses on pelicans and their death defying dives (Sunday, March 11 at 4pm.)

How can you win tickets? Take our Deep Look quiz “Can You Guess The Animal By Its Close-Up?” and you’ll be automatically entered for a chance to win two tickets to festival!
