2nd annual San Sebastian Surfilm Festibal announced

2nd annual Surfilm Festibal announced for San Sebastian

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 03 April 2004: - - We are proud to announce the second edition of the Surfilm Festibal. The international surf film and photography festival that took place for the first time in the fall of 2003 in Donostia, Basque Country, Spain.

This year the event will start on the 24th of September with the inauguration of a surf photography exhibition in the Okendo Kultur Etxea, 200 feet away from the waves of La Zurriola beach in Donostia and will get to its best the 21, 22 and 23-rd of October, weekend during which the movies will be screened.

In the first edition of the Surfilm Festibal, we talked about the beauty and art involved in the pursuit of the perfect wave, this elusive form that we, surfers, go after, all our lives. This year we want to go further and we will try to reflect with films but also with photography all the feelings and sensations surfing enables us to reach.

This is why we´ve set up a photography show. We want to explain through images the most important surf feelings, peace, relaxation, power, anger, relations, loneliness, harmony... A few surf action photographs, surf photographers but also artists of other fields whose works also reflect the life of a surfer. The installation will be completed with artworks from Blami, a renowed basque artist. The exhibition runs from September 24th all the way to November 1st.

The exposition is curated by Jamie Brisick, guest editor of the surfing issue of Big Magazine, former editor of Surfing Magazine, Tracks, etc…but most of all a SURFER. We met, we talked about surfing, we agreed, we were on the same wavelength: SOUL SURFING

The film festival runs on the weekend of the 21st, 22nd and 23-rd of October.
This year it will be happening in the coolest theatre in Donostia, the Teatro Principal, an old cinema in the old part of the city, which offers us the perfect atmosphere for our purpose.

We are getting ready the program. It will be 9 movies. Of course we keep loyal to our philosophy: all the movies talk about feelings, all the movies have artistic or argumental qualities besides the perfection of the waves or the radical surfing, all the movies are atemporal.

Hope you can come and enjoy with us the fantastic “art” of surfing!
