What an Event!

On March 18th and 19th, we had our second annual Santa Barbara Surf Film Festival!

The 2022 festival was an experience that celebrated Santa Barbara's rich surf history at the beautiful Community Arts Workshop space. We showcased captivating surf cinema, live music, art in multiple mediums, local charities & vendors, and food & artisan drinks. In line with our mission to support our community, we partner with three local non-profits The Surf Happens Foundation, Heal the Ocean, and Surfrider Foundation.


We were honored to work with an incredible group of film directors, creatives, and surfers to feature a fantastic lineup of films. From "Searching for Tom Curren," "Snapt4," "Birth of the Endless Summer," "Waterman," and "Morning of the Earth." Along with featured short films "93 Letter from Marge," "805 Presents: Beautiful Silence featuring Nate Tyler," "RE-MOTE: The Lost Reels," and "Art Form." The festival also showcased a two-day curated large format art exhibition of works by Albert Falzon. 


Our sold-out event was filled with art, live music, great food & drinks, local vendors, sponsor activations, and non-profit booths. We are grateful for our surf communities support in making this the best festival yet.
