Surfalorus Film Festival Lineup Announced
Dare County Arts Council and Cucalorus are stoked to announce that over 30 international and regional surf films will be screening on the Outer Banks at the 5th Annual Surfalorus Film Festival September 15-17.
The free family friendly event will showcase a new slate of the coolest surf films and ocean documentaries, featuring Psychic Migrations directed by Ryan Thomas, It Ain’t Pretty directed by Dayla Soul, Forbidden Trim directed by George Trimm, and The Zone directed by Jack Coleman.
“Welcome to an alternate surfing dimension, where creativity and imagination are boundless, and the vicissitudes of life pale in comparison to the utter joy of experiencing the moment,” said Director Jack Coleman. “The Zone was shot over two years throughout Australia, South Africa, Costa Rica, Mexico, and California and is a surf odyssey, exploring the future of free surfing and board design. I am psyched that The Zone is being featured in the Surfalorus Film Festival.”
Surfalous will kick off at the Outer Banks Brewing Station on Thursday, September 15 at 7pm with nine films and live music by Outer Banks surf rock band Frozen Head and the Squirrels.
“I am super excited to see my film, Southeastern NC Surf, at Surfalorus featuring Wilmington, NC surfers and shapers. I can’t think of a better venue than the Outer Banks with outdoor showings and plenty of sun and surf in-between films,” said Director John Burkett of Red Tide Productions.
Surfalorus will travel to downtown Manteo for film screenings at Dare County Arts Council on Friday, September 16 at 7pm. Five films will be shown after the Collectors Classic Longboard Exhibit reception at DCAC, which begins at 6pm. The exhibit by Steve Wise will feature a curated selection of 30 unique surfboards and Outer Banks surf photography by Mickey McCarthy.
On Saturday, September 17 Surfalorus will begin at 4pm with a casual afternoon of coffee and surf films at Front Porch Café in Nags Head.
Surfalorus will return to the Outer Banks Brewing Station on Saturday at 7:30pm for its biggest night featuring 15 films and live music by Wilmington, NC based rock-reggae band Medicated Sunfish.
Presented by Outer Banks Blue, Surfalorus is a gathering of coastal North Carolina surfers, outdoor enthusiasts, and the local art community to celebrate all things aquatic. The event is sponsored by the Outer Banks Visitors Bureau, TowneBank and Front Porch Café. SAGA Construction & Development helps underwrite all 2016 DCAC programming, including the Surfalorus Film Festival.
Surfalorus is a premier collaboration between the Dare County Arts Council and Wilmington, NC-based Cucalorus Film Festival, which will celebrate its 22nd anniversary this fall.
