Get set for our opening night, Cult Cinema Club 2020!
Join us for a night of top-shelf cinematic goodness, accompanied by smooth tunes, tasty food and brews, and the sweetest vibes in town!
We’ll be kicking off from 5.30pm with the live sounds of Ash Laforteza, delicious soulfood and herbal teas from Herbal Potential caravan, our licensed pop-up bar stocked with smooth brews and sweet treats, and of course, cult-status cinematic viewing inside the Village Cinema from 7.30pm!
PROXIMITY, a visceral portrait of modern surfing. This film follows eight of the world’s best surfers as they search for new waves and deeper understanding in exotic destinations. From 11-time world champion Kelly Slater and champion John Florence, to big wave icon Shane Dorian and breakthrough performer Albee Layer, with six-time women’s champ and legend Stephanie Gilmore, radical activist Dave Rastovich, and style masters Rob Machado and Craig Anderson completing the cast.
Rated G (55min)
We’ll also be screening as our pre-film entertainment, these exceptional short surf films:
Smile and Wave – Georgia Matts (Australia) 23 min. In a time when female surf movies are far and few between and tend to feature bikinis and lifestyle over skill and style in the surf, “Smile and Wave” aims to bring the focus back to highlighting the tremendous surfing abilities of female surfers.
The Guero – Jacopo Cosmelli (Italy) 3 min. Follow Italian surfer Alessandro Ponzanelli as he searches for golden sunrises and endless right point breaks in The Baja California Peninsula.
No To Noes Toes – Kensuke Saito (Japan) 3 min. Check out Kensuke and his mates, having a sweet ol’ time surfing around the Bay of Plenty and Coromandel, New Zealand.
Lights down inside the Village Cinema from 7.30pm
