Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 12 March, 2013 : - - The annual New York Surf Film Festival [NYSFF] has officially opened 2013 submissions for our sixth installment in NYC coming Fall 2013. The NYSFF is the premiere international surf film event, celebrating independent short and feature films, cult classics, and world premieres from established and emerging surf filmmakers.
Continuing our annual tradition to the surf community in New York City, the NYSFF has crafted a global platform that empowers aspiring filmmakers with shoestring budgets to expose their work to a wider audience. The New York City surf and general art communities pack the theaters to appreciate the creativity and beauty of surf film, celebrate these selected filmmakers, hear their inspirational stories and participate in intimate Q&A sessions with films’ production teams.
“We are excited to continue our partnership with the NYSFF in 2013 — as a creative agency we are inspired by this independent film and artist community, and look forward to supporting the showcase of their talents again in New York City,” says Dave Finger, Group Director for Action Sports at kbs+
The New York Surf Film Competition is open to feature-length and short films in the surf genre. In order to be considered for the Festival’s Film Competition, submitted films must have been completed after July 2008. The running time for features must be greater than 30 minutes. Short films under 30 minutes in length are eligible for participation in the Short Film Program. Submissions are open thru June 30, 2013.
