Where you need to be: Byron Bay Community Centre
What time: 4:30-5:30pm
Exciting deets: The world premier of 'Pear Shaped!' Surfer Lauren Hill will host the panel about her short film; a glimpse into the little absurdities from the everyday realities of being a woman in the water: from rogue tampon strings to the ever looming wardrobe malfunction.
