Save The Waves Film Festival is a one-night film festival tour of 3 California cities on consecutive Fridays in November 2012. Held on the thriving coastlines of Santa Barbara, Santa Cruz and San Francisco, this 4th-annual film and music event brings together our singular community of surfers, environmentalists and ocean lovers for intimate screenings of environmental, surf and ocean films in a unique and inspiring way.
In Santa Barbara on November 2, Save The Waves Film Festival at the Arlington Theatre features the world premiere of Chris Malloy’s latest surfing documentary, Groundswell, in which a group of activists set sail for an exploratory surf trip along British Columbia’s unspoiled but threatened west coast. The STWFF tour continues in Santa Cruz on November 9 and in San Francisco on November 16.
Save The Waves Film Festival also features the world premiere of Ode to California -- an alternative look at the northern California wilderness surfing experience -- by underground Santa Cruz lensman Patrick Trefz. Additional films are announced daily on our film festival blog. On November 9, Save The Waves Film Festival visits the Rio Theatre in Santa Cruz, and the tour ends at the historic Victoria Theatre in San Francisco on November 16. Event proceeds benefit the environmental programs of Save The Waves Coalition and World Surfing Reserves.
Save The Waves Film Festival is presented by Patagonia, Teva, Clif Bar and O'Neill Wetsuits.
Save The Waves Film Festival is also supported by: LoaTree, Zola Acai, 7x7 Magazine, Cannonball Press, San Franpsycho, Peligroso Tequila, Guayaki Yerba Mate, Sierra Nevada, Ocean Vodka, Hotel Indigo and Figueroa Mountain Brewing Co.
