CERF 2019 Film Festival

CERF is pleased to announce that this year's meeting will include a film festival. Any member can submit a short video, and we encourage everyone to come to the film festival screening event during the November meeting in Mobile. Films should be six minutes or less and align with one of four categories: Research, Places, People, and Coastal Connections. Coastal Connections is a broad category that includes films addressing social or other topics highlighting a connection to the coast. One filmmaker from each category will win the prestigious CERF Film Festival Best in Category Award. This is a great opportunity to showcase your research or coastal system in a creative way. Now is the time to start planning and filming! Films can be submitted via www.wetransfer.com to Jace Tunnell ([email protected]) by 1 September, 2019. Feel free to email film festival co-chairs, Jace or Cassie Gurbisz ([email protected]) with questions.
