Starting in May 2012, California surf fans will have one more reason to be stoked about San Diego. There is a brand new surf film festival coming to the city and it promises to provide fun and fellowship for all comers. Here’s the scoop:

Surf Film Fest Basics

The San Diego Surf Film Festival is slated to run from May 11 through May 13, 2012 at Bird’s Surf Shed in San Diego, California. The event is designed to pay homage to independent surf films and serve as a communal meeting place for all those who love to surf. Surf films are currently being accepted for consideration and as such the list of films to be screened will not be revealed until April 15, 2012. Tickets to the festival are expected to be available for purchase after that date and prices are tentatively set at $10 for adults and $5 for groms.



Those interested in submitting a film have until March 31, 2012 to get their entries in. The cost of entering a film ranges from $25 to $50, depending on the film’s length. Full details on what films will be accepted and how to go about submitting one are available on the event’s website.

Llyod’s surfboards are a thing of beauty as is the photography and artwork of Cher Pendarvis, another member of the festival’s screening panel.

But don’t just take my word for it. Those that have never scoped out their work really owe it to themselves to do so. Photos are available on their respective websites.

About the Venue
