2021 Florida Surf Film Festival

Festival to Resume in 2021

We are hoping to get back to our traditional festival dates on June 19, August 28, and November 19 and 20 of 2021.  Please mark your calendars.

NEW PODCAST: From the moment we locked eyes on Ben Gulliver’s work, we fell deeply in love.  He’s not so bad himself, but when offered the opportunity to interview him and beat his ass in golf down in Jupiter, FL, we jumped all over it.  The update and stories are funny and often a little scary when it comes to the Pacific Northwest or Scottish Isles.  Please enjoy.

When submitting, enter password “Surf”.  This eliminates irrelevant submissions for us and keeps the cost at $0 for filmmakers.

Due to transmission and health risks presented by COVID-19, our gathering of surf movie fans must be deferred until 2021.  Therefore, Florida Surf Film Festival presented by Monster Energy is announcing the following:

1.     February 2021 event is canceled, and we’re planning to go live June of 2021 on Father’s Day Weekend.

2.     All sponsorships will be extended by 12 months from their original expiration date.

Submissions for the 2021 festival are open via our website here. We will begin the process of acceptance for the 2021 festival all over again, and we will notify filmmakers individually if their 2020 official selection status will remain active for 2021.
