A 22 months anthropological expedition in the African Continent. Two brothers travel in a 1985 former military ambulance from Spain to South Africa. The aim is to encourage horizontal human relationships through an unprecedented surf exploration and exchange of cultures in this diverse and endless continent. The scars left by colonies, civil wars and contemporary social inequality, political instability and exploitation of resources make the continent one of the most intense in the world. From now on, Africa will set the rules.

19h00 // 72min
Réal: Łukasz Ratuski
Prod: Łukasz Ratuski & Grzegorz Wyrębiak-Warabida
The Baltic: cold, dismal, not a place you’d associate with surfing. Waves only form there for a couple of weeks a year. Even though they live 500 km from the sea, Paweł and Artur make sure to be in the water during those days. But not everything goes according to plan. They spend a few years seeking their dream wave. Is it even possible to catch it? And is it only about surfing for the two of them? A captivating story about chasing dreams, friendship, waiting, determination and overcoming barriers, it is the director’s debut feature-length film
THURSDAY JULY 7
SURF VIDA JESUS (Hong Kong)
Réal: Rocco Patella
Prod: A Small Company LTD
Paracuru is a small fishing town surrounded by majestic sand dunes, about 60 miles from Fortaleza, the capital of Cearà, one of the poorest states in Brazil. Life in Paracuru is punctuated by the tides, the swaying hammocks and the wind, which blows with relentless force for more than six months of the year. The sun rises every morning at 6 a.m. and sets at 6 p.m., every day, all year round.
No one is as reliable as the sun in Paracuru. There, an army of children and teenagers, mostly from extreme poverty, wait for five long months for the rainy season. It starts in December and ends in May. With the rain, the wind dies down and the waves come in. The heroes of these children are the Brazilian surfing champions: they train to become one of them. They dream of improving their lives, helping their families economically and getting out of their condition of being invisible among the invisible.
SATURDAY JULY 9
IT’S ON 4 (Polynésia)

Réal: Heiarii Billard et Karim Mahdjouba
Prod: KHM Media
This surf movie tells the story of the historic surf day on Friday 13 August 2021 in Teahupo’o. On Friday 13 August 2021, in French Polynesia, « It’s On! » echoed in the streets and was posted on all social networks. Because a never before seen swell was expected that day on the mythical and feared spot of Teahupo’o, at the southern end of the island of Tahiti, where the road ends. And the reality exceeded the wildest expectations.
WEDNESDAY JULY 6
PRESENTATION OF THE 2022 JURY
This year we are hosting the Sportjam Surftest in France!
From July 7 to 10 from 11AM to 8PM during the Surfilm Festival on the beach at Anglet.
Free trials of surfboards and accessories.
The festival takes place right on the beaches of the Chambre d’Amour, with 3 projection sites, open-air screenings, surfing, movies, art and concerts – all entirely free and open to the public. From Friday 7th to Monday 10th July 2023, The International Surf Film Festival in Anglet will celebrate it’s 19th anniversary. During four days, Anglet will be home to one of surfing’s major cultural film events, gathering both amateurs and professionals around this year’s best cinematographic achievements. Since its creation in 2004, close to 200 films have been shown during the festival, offering each year an international overview of the best pictures from the surfing world. An international jury composed of members from the surfing world and the media will select 7 winners during the closing night’s awards ceremony.
The International Surf Film Festival has built itself upon a strong goal: give recognition to the artistic merit of surf films and enable a wider audience to discover them. With an ever growing creativity in film-making from directors around the globe and the evident lack of exposure given to these types of films in the past within Europe, the ‘surf film’ deserved a fitting cultural and artistic event in its own right. In 17 years, the festival has progressively imposed itself as such.
The quality and diversity of the films showcased each year, proposing a rich variety of images and stories from the world of surfing, have made it an unmissable key event in the season. Presented by Bruno Delaye Production and the city of Anglet, the festival is entirely free and open to the public – allowing for a moment of exchange and fun for everyone.
