August 29, 2013 - KIND partnered with the SMASH (Surf/Movies/Art/Shaping/History) Film Festival to host their first 24-hour short surf film competition.
Five directors representing different New York surf communities came together to create three short films. The teams were asked to incorporate an act of kindness into their stories. Each film was presented during SMASH Fest (July 25-28) at the start of each official film screening.
Until August 31st, you have a chance to return the act of kindness by voting for your favorite film. Your vote will determine which team will receive a $1,000 grant from KIND to carry out an act of kindness for New York City’s coastlines, in partnership with Waves for Water. Watch the films, cast your vote and share these #kindawesome surf stories with your friends:
