Dare County Arts Council and Cucalorus are seeking entries for the 8th Annual Surfalorus Film Festival, returning to the Outer Banks Sept. 19 to 21.

Featuring an array of the year’s best surf films, with a series of sunset screenings and assorted festivities, Surfalorus is a free, three-day cinematic synthesis of all things aquatic.

Film screenings will be held at Dowdy Park in Nags Head on Thursday, Sept. 19, Dare County Arts Council in Manteo on Friday, Sept. 20, and the Outer Banks Brewing Station in Kill Devil Hills on Saturday, Sept. 21.

Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. each evening.

Surfalorus accepts shorts, features, documentaries, and any other surf-inspired films. Films must have been completed within the past two years to qualify.

Submit films online at FilmFreeway.com/surfalorus. The deadline is May 15.

For questions about eligibility or submission contact programming@cucalorus.org.

“Surfalorus is something I now look forward to every year,” says filmmaker Chris Hannant. “It’s an incredible opportunity for local filmmakers to showcase their work and, even better, it serves as inspiration to create new films. Winning an award last year made me feel really valued as an artist and is pushing me in 2019 to craft my best film yet!”

Awards for Best Short Film, Best Feature Film, Best Soundtrack, Best Cinematography, and Emerging Filmmaker of the Year will be presented again at this year’s screenings.

The festival will also feature live music, pop-up performances, a surfboard exhibit curated by Steve Wise, and locally made ocean inspired artwork.

“As an Outer Banks artist and surfer, the Surfalorus Film Festival is really special to me,” said artist Mark Slagle, who makes jewelry out of surfboard resin and is also a photographer. “I love how the event captures the stoke of surfing and expresses that feeling throughout the entire festival.”

Artists interested in selling their creative goods at the Surfalorus Film Festival can find the application online at DareArts.org/surfalorus. The application deadline is July 1.

Surfalorus is a premier collaboration between Dare County Arts Council and Wilmington, NC-based Cucalorus Festival, which will celebrate its 25th anniversary in November of this year.
