Ready to watch a series of movies that will make you feel good to be a surfer? If you’re in Honolulu this month, the 6th Annual Honolulu Surf Film Festival is going on from July 6 – August 1st.
The Honolulu Surf Film Festival is the longest film festival so far. Plus, it’s being held in a museum, which we (hope) elevates surf films as a genre to something of high art. The festival is at the Honolulu Museum of Art.
According to this year’s festival curator Abbie Algar, attendance is usually around 3,000-4,000, a nice, strong number of attendees. Honolulu’s general public is phenomenally connected to the surfing world, and that kind of enthusiasm for this little corner of creative expression is pretty incredible.
So, don’t miss out on numerous awesomely enriching and fun movies which showcase how cool it is to be a surfer, including Jaws: Changing the Game, Sine Qua Non, Zero to 100, and Party Mix.

And, if you’re up for it, the closing night reception is on July 28, 6-7:30pm, where you can enjoy a live performance by Mano Kane, plus food from Da Spot, beer and wine for purchase. Vintage classic Gun Ho screens at 7:30pm.
The festival flash pass includes 10 screenings, excluding the opening and closing night receptions. $90, $72 museum members. For more details, go here: https://go.honolulumuseum.org/Welcome.aspx
