Save The Waves Film Festival

In All, Film & Video by Richard Gonzales

Hello UC Film Departments & Associated Faculty,

My name is Trey Highton, PhD student at UC Santa Cruz, and the director of the Save The Waves Film Festival – the only environmental surf film festival in the world.  Last year, our film tour spanned four continents with over a dozen screenings.  This is an incredible opportunity for aspiring and established filmmakers to have their work seen by a truly international audience, and to support a great cause at the same time.

I am happy to extend a 50% discount to all UC affiliates on the submission fee, making it only $10 (please note your UC affiliation with your submission).  All funds raised go directly to STW’s environmental programs, including World Surfing Reserves.

Our submission window is open until 6/1/17 and should be sent to
