Last Hope by Andrew Kidman

Hi there!

Finally!! The moment has arrived to disclose the whole programme of the AMSTEL Surfilm Festibal7 – 2009. And also to announce the 20 short films that make it to the final and that will be screened at prime time at the Teatro Principal (it wasn't easy, believe us!!!).

It’s going to be 4 crazy days of movies, with 3 daily sessions and 2 films per session at 1 spectacular venue: The Teatro Principal. And alter the success from last year we’ve decided to invite Smile to play again live while we watch some classic surfing footage on the big scren. We’ve got two World premieres: Last Hope, a collaboration of Andrew Kidman, Patrick Trefz and Alby Falzon (and others) and Kelly on Cloud 9, which tells the story of Kelly Slater’s 9th World Title last year. We are also presenting two European premieres: Searching for Michael Peterson, Picaresque; and the long awaited The Present. Also lots of European movies and local firsts (Axi XXL, Mission89, A taste of California...), local short clips that have won festivals abroad (Madera) and, just like last year, the election of the Best Short Film as voted by the public winner during what's going to be –again.- the craziest session (Saturday afternoon). So click HERE to see the full programme and infos and HERE to find out which 20 short films made it to the final.

See you soon… very soon!!!
