DIY surf ethic ripe in German surf film festival
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 2 December, 2013 - Slowly but surely the year 2013 comes to an end. Leaves begin to fall, days are getting shorter and summer surfing memories seem to fade further away. HHonolulu Events is kicking off the surf film-festival season, which is filled with European and German and world premieres.
The Surffilmfestivals in Hamburg, Cologne and Munich will give you in each city a 4 day-long journey to escape from the daily routine. Enter the world of bikini bottoms, wild tube riding, urban surfing and the desire for beaches and big waves.
This year’s workshops focus on film and photography to provide handy hints to the ambitious need for documentation of our generation. We will support young surf photographers getting them mentored by professionals.
In addition, the participants have the opportunity to attend a shape workshop following the motto “Building your essential surf trip equipment” which will be held by Backwood surfboards. In close connection with the workshops, a national shortie competition, Blue Tomato Best Shortie, will be held to give you the chance to present your work on a big screen to a great and thankful audience.
The highly desired trophy “Best Shortie Award”, as well as 300 Euro cash, camera equipment worth 1.000 Euro per city as well as a lot of fame will be your reward.
