As a small pacific nation with their roots deeply connected to the native forefathers of surfing and an infinite coastline, New Zealand is a country of surf enthusiasts and ocean lovers. In order to keep the surf masses happy across the small coastal communities, surf film festivals are held to bring the community together. Next year, 2015, brings the third annual O’Neill Aotearoa Surf Film Festival and right now they’ve put out an open call for film submissions to national and international surf filmmakers.

For 2015, ASFF has a $5,000 prize pool for filmmakers. A new category has also been established to assist local filmmakers with the best New Zealand-made film taking away $1,000 cash and prize pack.
Submitted films will be judging by the festival screening panel consisting of Craig Levers, Gavin Bisman, Andrew McAlpine and Danny Clayton.
DEADLINE TO SUBMIT IS DEC. 20 SO DO IT NOW!
