Honolulu Surf Film Festival 2017

July 1–August 2

The Honolulu Surf Film Festival turns 10! The lineup of films old and new includes in-depth documentaries on today’s biggest surf talents, creative and comedic ventures, and psychedelic odysseys. Each Thursday night, we honor the history of surf filmmaking with classics selections, including a free screening of John Severson’s Pacific Vibrations. Throughout the month, vote for your favorite surf films during the screenings and we’ll announce the winners of the audience-choice awards before our closing-night screening of Bud Browne’s Going Surfin’.
