California Coastal Views Film Festival

Greetings!

The First Annual California Coastal Views Film Festival has begun. Film entries providing non-commercial California coastal views are being acquired from those submitted to Youtube.com. The film competition will be judged as follows:

Films are being collected from those tagged with key words indicating they contain scenes of the California coast. Until May 1st, they will screened and separated into logical categories (coastrides, places and wildlife, trips, waves and surfers, etc.). From May 6th until May 2, a group of judges will be asked to narrow the selections to the top ten in each of the categories. The final judging will be done by the members of the 2003 California Coastal Expedition, those who walked the entire coast of California during that spring and summer. Links to the winning films will be sent to this year's coastwalkers prior to their scheduled walks on California's coastal counties. Coastwalk's reputation for hosting walks in California counties over the past 24 years makes it especially qualified to partner with us to help coastal activists enjoy these films.

    Thank you so much for selecting my video to such festival event. I admire the California landscape a try to capture it into creative footages. I’d also suggest you look into other of mine at youtube.com like Surfers at the "Hook", Venice surfers, Sunset, Purple Sunset, Sunset Surfer, California Sunset, Surfing Away, Sunset at Ocean Beach or any other it might appeal to you. Such shame I got no time to edit others like my last Yosemite & Monterey trip. Once again: I appreciate your interest on having my work at the Festival!
    Sincerely,
    Carlos

    Thanks for considering my video as well! Quite surprised to see my video, "California Birthday Trip 2006", picked up -since it was intended to just be a personal travelogue.

    I've bookmarked this page to watch the other videos and keep as a reference to other place to explore when along the coast. Keep it up.
