    Aloha and Welcome to Beach Shorts Film Fest.  if this is your first time visiting our site Welcome Aboard!

     

    Beach Shorts Film Fest is all about having Fun and Sharing Aloha!

     

    We are gearing up for our Tenth Annual Beach Shorts Film Fest.  Coming August 20th 2016 Beach Shorts Film Fest is a film festival for short films 6 to 10 minutes in length with Surfing or Beach Lifestyles as the theme.   Beach Lifestyles covers a broad stroke.  We have had films featuring Skateboarding, Beach Volleyball, Sailing, Sandcastle building,  and so much more.   Over the years the Filmmakers have varied as much as the films.  We have had films from a 12 year old girl to a 66 year old Grom.

     

    All of our films are Family Friendly.    Our Screening night is a Fun Filled Family Friendly event.    Along with the awesome shorts films.  We also feature art and photography on display from local artists.   Each Year we are Proud to raffle a Brand New Longboard.  Generously Donated by Shaper Adam Davenport and Davenport Surfboards.

     

    We hope you will join us August 20th at 7pm  in the Historic Hermosa Beach Community Center for the Tenth Annual Beach Shorts Film Fest

     

    Remember,   Have Fun and Share Aloha!
