For two years, eight surfers travelled to the farthest corners of the globe — Scotland, Iceland, Norway, Faroe Islands, New Zealand, California, and Canada — and the film “The Seawolf” tells their journey.
Directed by Ben Gulliver, the artistic piece about winter surfing will headline Surf Movie Night XVI on Wednesday, August 1, at 7 p.m. at Guild Hall, located at 158 Main Street in East Hampton.
Proceeds from the evening will benefit the Surfrider Foundation Eastern Long Island Chapter’s Clean Water Programs, including Ocean Friendly Gardens, Rise Above Plastics, Ocean Friendly Restaurants and the Blue Water Task Force water quality-monitoring program — which tests and reports on 50 local beach and freshwater sampling sites. The program provides critical data to residents and decision-makers to inform on health and safety issues pertaining to bacteria and other contaminants.
Hosted by Andy Brosnan, the event will feature interactive courtyard exhibits highlighting chapter programs and initiatives, a raffle and silent auction, and other short surf films.
“An all-ages event, this is a great family tradition and serves as the primary clean water fundraiser for the chapter,” according to a press release.
Tickets are $20. For more information, call (631) 324-0806 or visit guildhall.org.
