We have come out of a Covid hiatus to welcome back the 14th Honolulu Surf Film Festival at the Doris Duke Theatre, Honolulu Museum of Art.
The opening night began with a reception in the Luce Pavilion which included live music by Temple Waves and a buffet dinner by the HoMA Café.
Halona Norton-Westbrook, the museum director welcomed the crowd back to the only surf film festival in the world that runs for a whole month. Doris Duke Theatre manager Sarah Fang and her committee chose the Sonny Miller classic ‘Searching for Tom Curren’, remastered by Derek Hoffman of Nalu TV, as the opening night film. Special guest surfer Tom Curren was on hand to field questions after the movie. Sarah Fang gathered together Martina Durand, Jon Santos, and Crystal Thornburg-Homcy to help select the films for this year’s festival.
Thanks Sarah Fox for the use of her instrumental music on this video.
