Presented with Michael Halsband
Juried by Chris Gentile, Taylor Steele, and Michael Halsband
Surf Movie Night is an outdoor screening of short, noncommercial surf movies made by filmmakers from both the East End and the rest of New York, and selected by Photographer and Film Director Michael Halsband, Pilgrim Surf Shop owner Chris Gentile, and Surf Filmmaker Taylor Steele. Previously known as “Atlantic Vibrations”, the Surf Movie Night program was created by Michael Halsband as a platform for emerging and established filmmakers, and acknowledges the timeless connection between art, film, and surfing.
Filmmakers include Stefan Beaumont, Nate Best, James Katsipis, Calvin Knowlton, Ben Potter, Kurt Rist, Bartholomew Schwarz, Levi Shaw-Faber, and Nick Whelan, plus a short film by Michael Halsband.
$5 raffle tickets will be for sale for a chance to win prizes donated by Norton Point Sunglasses, Flying Point Surf Shop, Breezin’ Up, and more.
This program has been made possible, in part, thanks to the generosity of
Southampton Arts Center
Co-curated by musician and painter Scott Avett, lead singer of the folk-rock band The Avett Brothers, and David Kratz, president of the New York Academy of Art, this exhibition asks viewers to slow down and consider the story inherent in every human face.
