Groundswell is going on tour

Victoria is the next stop on the Groundswell tour! Tonight, November 2nd, Groundswell premieres at the University of Victoria. This comes on the heels of last night’s premiere in Canada’s surf capital, Tofino BC.

A diverse and star-studded team of surfers, filmmakers, scientists and environmentalists will subsequently take the show to Vancouver and then to Patagonia Outlet Stores in major cities and surf meccas of the west coast.  The final US show will be Nov 17th in Cardiff, CA. Groundswell will screen with another short Raincoast documentary, Reflections: Art for an Oil-Free Coast that opened at the 2012 Vancouver International Film Festival.
