Global Surf Film Festival Collective Launches New Submission Process

Apr 2, 2012

Author: Press Release

The New York Surf Film Festival (NYSFF) presented by Barbados is pleased to join surf film festivals around the world in the collaborative launch of the Global Surf Film Festival Collective (GSFFC) at gsffc.org, a streamlined one stop submission process to worldwide surf film festivals. The New York Surf Film Festival along with San Diego Surf Film Festival, Portuguese Surf Film Festival, Wavescape Surf Film Festival, SAL – Surf At Lisbon Film Festival, British Surf Film Festival, Yallingup Surfilm Festival, Ombak Bali International Surf Film Festival, X-Life Film Festival, Fesitvalma, Bondi Beach Surf Film Festival, Sao Paolo Surf Film Festival, Berlin Surf Film Festival & Puerto Rico Surf Film Festival have formed this association of film festivals to share films and ideas in an effort to unify the global surf film festival community for both filmmakers and fans.

“Filmmakers spend too much time, funds, and resources shipping off DVD’s around the world to each individual festival. We wanted to help ease this financial and logistical burden,” said Morgan Rae Berk, Founder of NYSFF. “Surf film festivals around the world have been sharing information and resources behind the scenes for a while now and this is a natural evolution in the digital age to ensure films are considered for as many festival screenings as possible around the world.”

Filmmakers can head to gsffc.org, fill out a simple electronic submission form, and securely upload films and other supporting documents to GSFFC’s private viewing site accessible to the associated festival curators. Each festival maintains its own unique program and independently chooses their film lineup. Acceptance to one festival does not necessarily imply acceptance to all. Individual festivals will reach out to filmmakers direct to secure films for their lineup. Festival’s submission close dates are year round. Kindly check individual festival websites for important dates, deadlines, rules, guidelines and general information for each festival. The GSFFC is proud to include the following international surf film festivals:
