November 20th - 22nd, Surfrider Pacific Rim is hosting their Annual Short Film Festival. Local and international environmental short films are screened that show diverse efforts to celebrate and protect the ocean, beaches, and waves. Surfrider Pacific Rim will also be showing surf films from near and far that tell unique stories around people's connections to the sea. Many of the featured films highlight intersectionality in surf and in the environmental movement. The Film Festival includes a national online auction fundraiser of the best west coast items and experiences, as well as a "Film Fest Kit" which local residents (Tofino & Ucluelet) can purchase and enjoy the festival with!
All proceeds will benefit Surfrider Pacific Rim's work addressing plastic pollution and shifting to a circular economy on the west coast of Vancouver Island.
The sponsors of the Film Festival include the District of Tofino, Tofino Brewing Company, and Patagonia.
