In conjuntion with the Surf Film Archive, step into a surf film x music experience with Flotsam: Lightwaves ’23.

Live music x surf flicks = the Flotsam: Lightwaves immersive experiment.

Surf movies and music have been intertwined forever – entire eras of fads and fashions have been influenced by this combo. Co-joined once again for a double-headed night of entertainment, the Tom Atkin Hall will be lit up with epic footage and projections and some atmospheric, soundtrack-worthy live sounds.

Drop in + tune out with the live sounds of Luja Murfi.

Add vision in the form of the classic A Winter’s Tale, photo projections, short edits and clips for a night of wall to wall surf imagery and live tunes.

Buy a single ticket for Lightwaves, or a combo pass that entitles you to entry to the International Surf Flick Fest earlier in the evening. One pass, double session.
