Ahead of the Tide

Ahead of the Tide is a short film highlighting the effects of sea level rise and climate change through the stories and voices of local Floridians. Each showcases various aspects concerning sea level rise and includes interviews with scientists, engineers, politicians, conservation directors, educators, authors, activists.

Facing the Surge

Facing the Surge documents the tangible costs of sea level rise for the people of Norfolk, VA. Norfolk is home to the largest naval base in the country and to thousands of hard-working Americans struggling to adapt to the rising tides and an uncertain future. But Facing the Surge is not a film about loss and inaction. It tells the stories of citizens from across the United States as they step forward to raise awareness and push their government to solve climate change.


Tickets are $8 in advance and $10 at the door (proceeds benefit four local sustainability nonprofits).  Walk-ups welcome yet pre-registration really helps us avoid food waste and other planning logistics!
