Filmmakers will be notified by June 8 as to whether their film will be screened at the 2017 film festival.

CHAPTER MEETING  
May 31, 2017, Wednesday 7:00-9:00 pm
Old Rapp Saloon, 1438 Second St, Santa Monica, 90401

Cemex mines about 270,000 cubic yards (and perhaps more) of Southern Monterey Beach’s sand a year, essentially like carrying away one 14-yard dump truck full of sand from the beach every 40 minutes, around the clock. And this has been going on at the plant for decades – without a requisite Coastal Development Permit. The Monterey Beach now has the highest coastal erosion rate in California!

Join Surfrider for a very special chapter meeting where we’ll be screening SAND WARS, an important documentary about this globally critical and oftentimes public resource that is being pilfered by corrupt politicians and greedy developers. Screening will be followed Q&A with our rock star California Policy Manager, Jennifer Savage. Chapter meetings are always free and open to both Surfrider members and the public. See you there!
