San Diego's First International Surf Film Festival at Bird's Surf Shed

Head over to Linda Vista next month for the first ever San Diego Surf Film Festival (SDSFF). For a town steeped in surf culture, it's a wonder it took this long to create a film festival honoring those who believe a bad day in the water is ten times better than a good day out of it.

“Surf films are one of the most important mediums we have to honor our most beloved pastime and lifestyle," says Pierce Kavanagh, who, along with his wife Petra and friend Ed Lewis, created SDSFF. "We want this to be a time to come together, enjoy each others' company and be inspired by the works of art that these artists and filmmakers worked so hard to bring to life.”

The festival, which runs from May 11 - 13, kicks off with a VIP party on May 10 where the City of San Diego will present SDSFF with a proclamation. The festival will showcase 12 features and 18 shorts all centered around surfing. Screenings will be held at Bird's Surf Shed located at 1091 West Morena Blvd. in Linda Vista.

Reviews and an interview with Pierce Kavanagh will follow. Maybe next year will bring the SDSFF's premiere of Matt Lickona's Surfing With Mel. In the meantime, mark your calendar for SDSFF's first big splash. Tickets cost $5 to $10 per show with all-day passes running $40; $100 gets you a "Nautilus" pass good for all four days. Below is a complete list of the films to be screened. Click for more information.

They're replacing the usual four star ratings with the hang ten rating system:

Hang Ten = four stars Hang Five = three stars Gnarly = two stars Dude = one star Lamo = zero stars
