UK PREMIERE: CRADLE OF STORMS, Dir: Bryce Lowe-White and Ben Weiland, USA, 2014

Alex Gray, Josh Mulcoy, and Pete Devries went on a journey through the remote Aleutian Arc of Alaska, the birthplace of storm systems that send swell back to the whole Pacific region. They braved heavy weather, flew on rickety prop planes, and ate seal meat en route to discovering one of the best cold-water slabs in the world. The film follows the cold-water crew as they traverse the island on quads, tracking pulses of swell to remote bays and never before surfed points. Set against the stunning volcanic backdrop of the Aleutian Islands, The Cradle of Storms is cold-water surf exploration at its finest.

A small group of surfers set out to seek their own kind of riches on some of the most remote beaches of the Canadian coast. Starring Peter Devries plus Reid and Arran Jackson, this is an expedition to the far-flung shores of Haida Gwaii, a chain of wave-swept, lushly forested islands off the British Columbia mainland. Surfing, camping and foraging for food on the area’s unspoiled beaches, the three surfers step away from the modern world and into a quieter, more attuned and more self-sufficient existence.

Missing-3CORNWALL PREMIERE: MISSING, Dir: Taylor Steele, USA, 2013

Mick Fanning drops out of the competitive circus and drops into a three week magical mystery tour with a rad crew. Legendary filmmaker Taylor Steele is there to capture all the highs and lows as John John Florence, Jordy Smith, Taylor Knox, Matt Wilkinson and Tom Curren all hop onboard in the search for something different.
As Mick explains “I wanted to work with Taylor and was trying to come up with a concept, but it all got too hard. I didn’t need another thing to concentrate on as my life can be so regimented at times that I just said to him, you know what, you surprise me. I’ll give you 21 days in July between events and whatever you want to do, I’m up for it.” The result is a transcontinental goose chase of epic proportions. Hop onboard, go Missing!
