The 2021 Carolina Surf Film Festival today announced that it will be held at Mex 1 Coastal Cantina in West Ashley. The festival is being held Saturday, October 16th, 2021, with doors opening at 5 pm and the surf films beginning at dusk.
The lineup for this year’s festival includes short films like:
- Tidal Wave, an animated film by Jack Brown that will show various surfers riding waves
- VACA, a film about a vacation trip to Puerto Rico that was supposed to only be 8 days and turned into a 50-day vacation chasing windy edges, glassy tubes, and fat air sections
- One of the features is Rainbows In the Rearview, a film by Albee Layer. It features Albee alongside Matt Meola, Tanner Hendrickson, Torrey Meister, Kai Barger, and Tyler Larronde
- A full list of all the films being shown can be found here.
Mex 1 will be throwing a block party at their West Ashley location with overflow parking in the old Ryan’s parking lot. Guests will be able to listen to live music by the Destinators, shop with the local vendors onsite, and enjoy food and drinks being served from multiple bars available for film goers to imbibe and watch a variety of surf films.
The event’s fundraising partner – and recipient of a portion of the proceeds – is Waves for Women, a nonprofit therapeutic surf program that empowers women to build emotional and physical wellness as well as safe supportive communities through a combination of surf instruction, women’s wellness groups, and community building.
Tickets purchased in advance are $15 or they are $25 at the door, The link to purchase tickets is here.
