"If you see just one film this year make it STAND - regardless of if you support a pipeline or not - the cinematography is unreal! " - Dave Clark, BC


STAND is a surf & SUP film about a threatened coast. In partnership with Quiksilver, STAND is an environmental film that rallies against the potential harmful effects that business ventures evoke on natural habitats.


Showcasing the west coast of BC and what's at stake with the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline - tanker route. Taking place in Haida Gwaii, Great Bear Rainforest, Bella Bella and Vancouver Island; STAND takes the viewers on a journey through the coast showcasing the rich First Nations culture and the incredible terrestrial and oceanic environments of the coast.


Outline

STAND has three main characters: Norm Hann, who paddles 350km along the east coast of Haida Gwaii visiting the Haida Watchman sites along the way; Raph Bruhwiler, who lives the quinessential west coast life in Tofino BC, with surf at his back door and an ocean that feeds the family; and the students from Bella Bella Highschool woodworking class, who's journey is followed as they build standup paddleboards in class.

STAND is supported by Quiksilver Waterman, Pacific Wild, Ikelite Underwater Systems, Wefi surfboards, Coast Mountain Culture, SBC Surf, The Escape Route, Boardworks, Kalavida Surf Shop, and Standup Magazine

THE ISSUE:

Enbridge Inc, a Calgary-based oil and gas company has proposed the construction of a 1,170 km pipeline running from Alberta’s tar sands to Kitimat on British Columbia’s west coast. From here, crude oil would be loaded into super tankers bound for Asia. Before reaching the open ocean, these tankers would first need to pass through some of the most dangerous navigable waters in the world―the narrow inlets of the Great Bear Rainforest.

Long protected by the 1972 Trudeau government moratorium on crude oil tankers plying British Columbia’s north coast, these waters are now facing the risk of oil spill. Potentially, 225 Very Large Crude Carriers (VLCC) per year would each transport approximately 2 million barrells of oil through the Great Bear Rainforest. In context, today’s supertankers carry ten times the volume of the Exxon Valdez oil spill. Put simply, the pristine marine and terrestrial ecosystems as well as the people of the Great Bear would likely not recover from such an incident.

This issue is perhaps the most important environmental issue in B.C. history. Whats more, a catastrophic oil spill could reach beyond borders and impact much of the Pacific North West coastline.
