2019 Short Film Competition


Thats right, we have officially opened up the call for short film submissions to the festival and we encourage surf filmmakers from New Zealand and around the world to enter the competition. This is your opportunity to get your film on the big screen! Submissions are open till January 8th, so plenty of time to still capture that all time swell or dust off the VHS archive and get editing. All kiwi and international surf filmmakers welcome, and we would love to see professional, amateur and first-time filmmakers submit. Films must celebrate the art of wave-riding in all its diversity, simple as that. Categories will be announced in late November 2018 including best kiwi-made film and grassroots kiwi filmmaker. 

With a major prize pool to be announced, get your films in now. Deadline is Tuesday January 8th 2019.  We like to keep submission as simple as possible. No fees and simple digital film delivery.
