Wade in the Water, a tiny film fest

Saturday, June 19, 2021

Hello Community! Please join us on Juneteenth for Wade in the Water: A Tiny Film Fest featuring the premiere of BELONGING, a Belmar History + Art site-specific film honoring early African Americans in Santa Monica. This in-person outdoor screening of short films celebrates Black culture and the water. From spiritual rituals to migration and sports, water is an integral part of how we rejuvenate and restore joy.

Before the screening, enjoy food trucks, music by DJ Moni Vargas, and the history panels and sculpture that make up the Belmar History + Art exhibition. At the close of the event, stick around for a prize giveaway!

Bring your blankets or beach chairs for lounging on the field. Limited seating will be provided for accessibility.

Please note we will be following the COVID County Health public health and safety guidelines that are in place at the time of the event.
