    What: Shore Stories Film Series
    Where: Grayton Beer Company, 217 Serenoa Rd. Santa Rosa Beach
    When: Thursday March 1 6 pm

    Shore Stories will head to Grayton Beer Company Thursday, March 1st to show six short films that highlight the grassroots resistance taking place across the US, as well as stories from past oil and gas exploration. The Stories are told by a broad range of people who love the coast and stand together in opposition to drilling--surfers, fishermen, scientists, environmentalists, business owners, and coastal residents.

    After the films a discussion will be held on the proposal and how you can get involved in resisting these disastrous plans.

    Shore Stories is a film series and organizing initiative that uses short documentary films to build public opposition to the Federal government’s plans to expand offshore drilling to the coast of Florida. The six short films curated by Working Films and allied organizations, highlight the growing grassroots movement building across the U.S., as well as stories from past oil and gas exploration – including the BP Deepwater Horizon disaster. A full list of films - including preview links - can be found at the end of this release.

    These efforts follow an announcement from the Trump administration on January 4, 2018, to expand offshore drilling to the Atlantic, Pacific and Arctic oceans, as well as the Eastern Gulf of Mexico, off the Florida Gulf Coast.

    Shore Stories events will be used to drive turnout and public participation during the 60-day public comment period on the proposal, which will take place through March 9, 2018. Local environmental officials from Gulf Restoration Network and Surfrider Foundation will be onhand to lead a discussion following the films.

    Shore Stories Films will be shown at events across the Florida panhandle and throughout coastal cities in the United States.
