2017 #SLOIFF Surf Nite – Between Land & Sea

Posted by Larry Gleeson


Presented by San Luis Obispo Collection

Also sponsored by Apple Farm, City of Pismo Beach, Cliffs Resort, Quality Suites of San Luis Obispo, Sea Venture Resort, Coast 104.5, and Sycamore Mineral Springs Resort & Spa.

Directed by SLO Film Fest alum, Ross Whitaker (his short Bye Bye Now screened at SLO Film Fest in 2010) Between Land and Sea,  screening March 17th at 7 PM in the stunning Art Deco inspired Fremont Theater, chronicles a year in the life of an Irish surf town at the mercy of the Atlantic Ocean.

Against the backdrop of Ireland’s stunning west coast, this film digs deep into the day to day lives of the surf community, taking the audience beyond the bluster of the typical adrenaline fueled film to create a very real portrait of those who choose the surf lifestyle.

Irish Big Wave surfer Ollie O’Flaherty will be in attendance, along with the Irish Patagonia surf ambassador, Tom Doidge-Harrison. Both are featured throughout the film and will be traveling to San Luis Obispo for the Premiere.

And if that’s not enough for you, the evening will begin with a short called CHANDLER’S ARK, about Scott Chandler’s quest to put a record number of dogs on a surf board and have them catch a wave! It’s entertaining, amazing and…no dogs were harmed in the making of that film.

But wait there’s more…

Coast 104.5’s Adam Monteil will host the event! Join Surf Nite special guests, visiting filmmakers, and fellow Surf Nite attendees at an After-party in the Festival VIP tent after the movie and Q&A. $10 and a Surf Nite wristband is the cover charge for beer, wine and snacks in the Filmmakers tent.
