Surf Movies Tonight!

In the jury category, director Eric Ebner was happily surprised with his win for Best Documentary short for The Bull, a profile of evergreen Baja denizen Glen Horn. And perhaps the event’s biggest winner, considering a unanimous decision by the festival jury for Best Documentary, was Takuji Masuda’s Bunker77, a wrenching, well-documented cautionary tale profiling the very brief life and times of ‘70s wild child Bunker Spreckels.

One of the great things about surf film festivals is that they not only provide an opportunity for an audience to watch surfing up on the big screen, they provide that same thrill to those who make these movies, many who’ve only seen their creation on tiny monitors. And in this sense the Florida Film Festival is one of the best around, honoring the genre, its fans and filmmakers with such a well-run—and really fun—event.
