The Mill Valley Surf Film Festival is happening on Oct. 20 at the Sweetwater Music Hall in Downtown Mill Valley. The festival will be featuring five full-length films, including Taylor Steele’s “This Time Tomorrow,” and nine short films. The night will be capped off with a performance by the Mermen. Doors open at 11 a.m., and the films begin at 1p.m.
