Byron Surf Flix continues this March on Tuesday 19th with The Heart & The Sea ❤️🌊

Main Presentation at 7:30pm, Bar, Music and Food from 6:00pm and during intermission

Come in early to the Byron Theatre to enjoy some live acoustic music and an icy cold Stone & Wood in the Beer Garden. Catch up with the local surf community and perhaps bump into a surprise guest or two involved in the making of this beautiful film.

Over three years in the making, The Heart & The Sea explores the joy that lies at the very centre of a surfing life: family, friends and a shared intimacy with the sea.

Beautifully captured and sensitively crafted, The Heart & The Sea features Dave Rastovich, Lauren Lindsey Hill, Alex Knost, Tom Wegener, Sage Joske, Brett Caller, Johnny Abegg, Kassia Meador, Clovis Donizetti, Belinda Baggs, Paul Joske, Ryan Burch, Chris Del Moro, Matt Chojnacki, Jared Mell, Dane Peterson, Joel Tudor, Harrison Roach & many others.

The Heart & The Sea was the third release from independent Australian filmmaker Nathan Oldfield, the creator of the highly regarded left of centre surf films Lines From a Poem and Seaworthy. Nathan’s latest film, Church of the Open Sky, will be screened by Byron Surf Flix on Tuesday 16th April.

"Nathan Oldfield is a maverick, a filmmaker who wants a surf movie to say something important, to move us and make us grateful for the sea around us and the life within
us. His films are quiet, beautiful and brimming with sacred purpose."
TIM WINTON, Acclaimed Australian Novelist

Over three years in the making, The Heart & The Sea explores the joy that lies at the very centre of a surfing life: family, friends and a shared intimacy with the sea.

Filmed in stunning locations in Australia, New Zealand, France and Spain, this is a gently refreshing and quietly enchanting contribution to the surf film genre.

"Who said reaching the age of retirement had to be boring? The 2019 seniors’ expo certainly challenged that assumption! The seniors’ expo shone a light on our golden years and has potentially redefined the age of senior-ism (totally not a word but sounds like it certainly should be) as our days of glory and something for the younger generations to LOOK FORWARD TO. In one word, the 2019 seniors expo was sen(ior)-sational."
