HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Get ready for Hawaii's premiere international surf film showcase, the Kona Surf Film Festival from December 2 & 3, 2011. The eighth installment of this epic weekend of film, music, art, ono grindz and drinks is set to be the biggest festival yet with special guest Rob Machado, undeniably one of the world's greatest surfers, on board to share in the stoke.
The Kona Surf Film Festival showcases independent short and feature films from established and emerging surf filmmakers from around the globe. The event is a benefit for the Seathos Foundation, which promotes education and awareness of the human impact on the world's oceans.
This year festival organizers received a record number of film submissions and have attracted a line-up of big-name sponsors including Nike, Alaska Airlines, Hurley, the Kona Brewing Company, and more. The line-up of films is set to be announced next week but organizers have hinted to expect a mix of American, Australian, European and locally produced works.
