The PicknPay Wavescape Surf Film Festival is back this year and it looks like it’s gotten even bigger. Controversial cartoonist Zapiro will be decorating a surfboard, along with other well-known artists such as Guy Tillim, Brett Murray and Richard Scott, that will be exhibited from December 1 to 8 at the Field Office, in Barrack Street, Cape Town, and auctioned for charity on Thursday 8 December.
The art exhibition is part of the 7th edition of the Wavescape Film Festival, which is presented by Pick ‘n Pay. The 2011 festival features an open air screening on Clifton 4th Beach, and indoor screenings at venues in Kalk Bay and the city bowl. The beach screening is truely majestic and I recommend that you check it out if it’s a nice evening in Cape Town
Films this year include the avant garde production Year Zero, as well as hot surfing movies Leave a Message, Minds in the Water and Come Hell or High Water. Wavescape also screens the amazing Art of Flight snowboarding movie and MTB film Life Cycles.
An international premiere of a film about Surfers and Sharks will take place at the Labia Cinema in Orange Street on Friday, 16 December, while we also screen the amazing proudly South African production by Jason Hearn called The Africa Project.
