Call for Films

Save The Waves Film Festival Announces 2012 Call for Entries 

Save The Waves Film Festival is excited to announce the official 2012 call for film entries for its fourth annual installment of this cutting-edge film festival. For the first time ever, Save The Waves Film Festival 2012 will travel to 3 select California cities near you in November: San Francisco, Santa Cruz and Santa Barbara. 

Save The Waves Film Festival is a one-night film festival event featuring documentary surf films, ocean activist campaigns, live music, athletes and artists that highlight the environmental elements of surfing, ocean conservation, and the coastal lifestyle we know and love.

Save The Waves Film Festival is not restricted by film genre; however, we encourage filmmakers to explore unique and personal stories that link surfing and the environment, environmental activism, surf culture and the cultural value of waves and surfing. We encourage and welcome submissions that explore all aspects and angles of surfing, coastal environmentalism, and cutting-edge artistry from documentary to animation to engaging, experimental and unique works of ocean-inspired art.

Aspiring filmmakers from all walks of life should visit to learn more about the film festival, read the festival guidelines, and submit a short or feature length film. Film festival rules and guidelines and the official Film Submission Form can also be accessed via the below links: 

The deadline for the receipt of film submissions to Save The Waves Film Festival 2012 is August 31, 2012. Filmmakers can submit films early and often.
