We welcome the 2018 Honolulu Surf Film Festival with another month lineup of surfing films at the Honolulu Museum of Art's Doris Duke Theatre. The opening night reception was sold out and aired the film MOMENTUM GENERATION which had great buzz from the Tribeca Film Festival. Unfortunately they did not allow filming in the auditorium or of the post film Q&A.
The closing night of the 2016 Honolulu Surf Film Festival combined Bud Browne's film SURFING THE FIFTIES with a reception and panel of luminary surfers honoring the surfing life of big wave rider Peter Cole. Peter assured us that he was still alive and well. Anna Trent Moore hosted the night starting with a VIP reception for Peter followed by a panel of legendary surfers in their own right who regaled the audience with personal stories about the exploits of Peter Cole.
At the 4th Annual Surf Film Festival in Honolulu I witnessed a most unusual event......Greg Noll, Dick Brewer, and Bob McTavish all smiling on the same stage. But really in the post getaway I witnessed Corky Carroll and Jock Sutherland signing a baseball.
Professional surf photographer Zak Noyle hosted the 2019 Honolulu Surf Film Festival's Rising Tide event. Rising Tide consisted of eleven video shorts made by local Hawaii surfing director videographers showcasing their talent in a three minute video format.
Following the showing of several short films related to surfing and surfers in Hawaii with larger stories than just wave after wave surfing, Sarah Fang held a Q & A session with Kohl Christensen, Mark Cunningham, and Daniel Russo. This is a straight no edit version of that session.
Surf film maker Heather Hudson brought her latest project "The Women and the Waves 2" to the 9th Honolulu Surf Film Festival at the Doris Duke Theatre in Honolulu. For this project Heather produced, directed, and became the cinematographer for the majority of the film.
One event at the 2016 Honolulu Surf Film Festival was devoted to a specially edited film of Bud Browne's work followed by a talk story and answer session from Anna Trent Moore. Anna is the daughter of big wave surfer Buzzy Trent, and she considers herself the hanai daughter of surfing film pioneer Bud Browne. She tells first hand stories about her Dad and Bud and by association she has become an active and integral part of that same surfing history.
