Following the success of the inaugural Wavelength Surf Film Festival on the clifftops of Watergate Bay, we’ve decided to take the show on the road!
On Wednesday the 13th October, we’ll be bringing some of our favourites films from the bill to a popup cinema in the centre of Bristol as part of the Blue Earth Summit. Get your tickets to the evening here.
Bringing together a variety of outdoor adventurers and sustainable business leaders, the Blue Earth Summit will set out to explore how we can all live and work more sustainably. Kicking off on the 13th of October in the centre of Bristol, day one will feature a series of inspiring keynotes, panel discussions and hands-on workshops. Then, day two will see the Summit head to The Wave Bristol, offering attendees the chance to get outdoors and meet like-minded people, with an action-packed schedule of surfing, biking and running. You can find out more about the event here.
As with our Newquay event, the bill will feature a heady mix of all-action shorts and feature-length documentaries, representing the very best contemporary releases from the world of surf cinema. Plus there’ll be food, a fully stocked bar and a live conversation on stage with two of Britain’s most storied surfers (more info on that coming soon).

Starring Alexandre Wolthers, Caio Teixeira, Fellipe Ditadi, Marina Carbonell and Pedro Scansetti
Following a crew of Brazil’s best loggers, who, like their shortboarding counterparts, are among the world’s dynamic, as they set off north to expand their horizons, finding heavy beachies and spinning points along the way. Come for the great surfing and feel-good vibes, stay for the end section, which features an endlessly long and impossibly smooth ride on the Pororoca river bore.
Starring Dion Agius, Craig Anderson & Chippa Wilson.
The latest in a long line of mind-bending collaborations from Dion Agius and filmer Joe G, Dark Hollow features unparalleled cinematography and radical surfing from an all-star cast.
Inspired originally by Dion’s desire to both showcase and promote the protection of his home state of Tasmania, over several years the film morphed to also include segments shot in Japan and Indonesia. The core aim though remained the same, with Globe and Dion pledging to donate a sizeable sum to a Tasmania based environmental foundation following the release of the film and the associated clothing capsule.
With mesmerising visuals and incredible action, this is another from our billing we highly recommend watching on the big screen, with loud surround sound, rather than on your phone.
Water Get No Enemy
Starring Damien Castera & Arthur Bourbon.
Fifteen years after the end of a civil war that ravaged Liberia, the West African country is slowly rising from the ashes. In this feature-length documentary, professional surfers and filmmakers Damien Castera and Arthur Bourbon take the opportunity to visit, surf the plethora of perfect waves and meet former child soldiers who have swapped their assault rifles for surfboards and are looking towards a brighter future.
Thank You Mother
Starring Torren Martyn
Torren Martyn and Ishka Folkwell’s award-winning Thank You Mother is a sincere cinematic celebration of surfing and simplicity. Narrated by Alby Falzon – director of the seminal Morning Of The Earth – the film begins as a story about the act of creating a surfboard and the art of riding it and morphs into a meandering pontification on creativity, friendship and connection.
Shot on location in South Africa, Indonesia and Australia, it features Torren’s signature blend of stylish and powerful surfing which combines with a compelling narrative and beautiful cinematography to create what is, in our opinion, one of the best surf films of recent years.
When? 1900 – 2300 on Wednesday the 13th October 2021
Where? The Marble Factory 74-78 Avon St, Bristol BS2 0PX
