Whether you’re interested in plastic pollution, water quality, climate change, beach cleans or even simply surfing, there should be something here for you in SAS Films.
Spread the message of ocean optimism to your friends, families and communities by sharing the films and, if there’s a film you really like, why not organise a little screening to bring people together?
