Board Shorts 2012 Surf Films by Socal Artists Inspired by Women Calling all SoCal Surf filmmakers, established and emerging! San Diego Surf Ladies and The Loft at UC San Diego present: Board Shorts: a festival of short surf films by Socal artists, inspired by women. Date: Saturday, February 25th Venue: The Loft at UC San Diego Time: 7pm Afterparty: 9.30pm Media Contact: Liz Bradshaw – ejbradshaw@ucsd.edu / 858.405.4589 Following the success of the Oceanides premiere last October the San Diego Surf Ladies have decided that more events are in order to celebrate the athlete’s and artists that make up the surf community in Southern California! On February 25th SDSL will be hosting it’s first annual short film festival at The Loft at UC San Diego and invite all filmmakers in the Southern Californian area to submit their short film to be screened at this special event that will also play host to surf inspired visual artists and musicians. As a female surf club the Surf Ladies recognize and are inspired by the growing population of sisters in the surf industry doing it for themselves! Winning world championships, shaping boards, making music and films all without the help from any major brands! Plus they love any opportunity to get together with the community and geek out on the sub-culture that inspires them. Seeking entries from seasoned and emerging filmmakers we invite all artists male and female (no gender discrimination here!) to send us their best!! Entries will be being collected by SDSL from now through Sunday February 5th when selections will be juried by a panel of industry professionals from the world of surfing, art and the media! Following the screening will be a Q&A with filmmakers, panel members and notable surfers then we’re on to a meet and greet whilst hip world beats get the dance party started! Dinner and drinks will be available all night from Zanzibar!
