Happy Sad Man: $15 (Sat 1.30 – 3.30pm) 
(not included in full festival ticket)

Happy Sad Man is a charming and uplifting insight into the lives of five very different Australian men.

“When five men – a surfer, a farmer, an artist, an ageing hippy, and a war correspondent open up about feelings, mental health and masculinity – weird and wonderful things can happen on streets, in public places and even kebab shops.”

Outdated Children AUSTRALIAN FILM PREMIERE : $15 

(Sat 7.30 – 9pm. Q&A with Mick Waters + featured surfer Glen Casey followed by film)

A new film by Australian filmmaker Mick Waters. 

Mick’s movie is titled after the Dr.Suess quote, “Adults are just outdated children”.

A Wayne Lynch voiceover opens the film. The secret to getting older, says Wayne who cops to being very old these days, is keeping that childlike appreciation of the world without becoming childish in the way you do it.  Three years ago Mick packed his family up into a caravan and took off around the southern coasts of Australia.

The movie, in essence, is a string of short vignettes about the menagerie of characters he meets along the way. When you drive along the bottom of the Australian coast you’re going to meet some interesting cats.

The surfers include Wayne Lynch, Glen Casey,Dustin Hollick, Marti Paradisis, Sandy Ryan, Mick Fanning, Jeff ‘Camel’ Goulden, Heath Joske, Paul Joske and AddyJones. 


Crystal Voyager SURF CLASSIC 1973: $15

Crystal Voyager is a 1973 Australian surf film directed by David Elfick with Cinematography by Alby Falzon & George Greenough.

It documents Greenough’s search for uncrowded waves, which led to the construction of his 37-foot ocean-going yacht. Music by Pink Floyd, G. Wayne Thomas (Tix on door as available)

NOTE: This was originally a showing of the re-mastered version but as George was not 100% happy with the final masters it is being finished at present and we are showing the original version via DVD
