STOKED AND BROKE WINS BEST FILM AT THE 1ST CANADIAN SURF
FILM FESTIVAL

Halifax, Nova Scotia (October 5th, 2010) – The Canadian Surf Film Festival (CSFF) would like to congratulate Cyrus Sutton and Ryan Burch on winning the award for Best Film. The combination of humour, great surfing, and a poignant message about consumer culture, made Stoked and Broke an inspiring and thoughtful film.

Nico Manos and Julian Crick won Best Canadian Short for Nico in Indo. The Best International Short award went to Mickey Smith for Dark Side of the Lens. And a Special Mention was given for Sean Mullens for Birthright.

The first ever Canadian Surf Film Festival took place September 30th to October 2nd. From the opening reception and art show at Argyle Fine Art, to the screenings at Empire Theaters Park Lane, to the after parties at 2540.ca, the festival roared and trembled with excitement as the Canadian surf community came together to celebrate and enjoy the films and each other.

To finish things off, a sold out show at the Paragon Theater featuring Matt Mays, Maddison Avenue and Andrew Hunter, capped what was already a very successful first event. And if that wasn’t enough the ocean cooperated with perfect waves over the weekend.

The Canadian Surf Film Festival was made possible by the generous contribution and support from the following sponsors: Empire Theaters, The Atlantic Film Festival, The Coast, AFCOOP, The Surfing Association of Nova Scotia, Power Post, Quiksilver, If Only Surf Shop, McAuslan Brewery, Ticketpro.ca, Local Source Catering, Etc. Press, One Life Surf and Edit Farm.
