Film exploring the impact of the Fish design takes home 'best film'

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 24 January, 2016 - The Bells Beach Surf Film Festival has been run for another year featuring ten surf films over four nights including four Australian Premieres. The surfing community was thrilled with the high standard of surf films coming from Australia and around the world.

This years award winners came from four different continents highlighting the international reach of the festival.  

Joseph Ryan’s documentary on the development of the Fish surfboard titled ‘FISH’ won BEST FILM. Mark Waters documentary THE SALT TRAIL won BEST CINEMATOGRAPHY for its stunning images of the Indonesia surf experience while FREEZING from UK filmmakers Rob Rob Lockyear & Jeremy Joyce won BEST SHORT FILM for its originality and comedy.

The Festival Awards Committee were excited to announce that MAD DOGS from Brazil won the PETER TROY 'SPIRIT OF SURFING' Award.

In 1963 Torquay surfer Peter Troy embarked on an amazing three year surf trip around the world visiting dozens of nations and five continents. It was one of the great journeys in the history of modern surfing.

MAD DOGS from Brazil was a unanimous choice for this award. The awards committee praised the story telling as Marcio Freire, Danilo Couto and Yuri Soledade travell to Hawaii in search of big waves. Their quest to paddle into the biggest waves they could find is told beautifully by writer and director Roberto Studart.

The BELLS BEACH SURF FILM FESTIVAL will be back in January 2017 for a seventh year bringing the best surf films to the Surf Coast.
