The SLO Film Fest is delighted to put South Africa in the spotlight this year for its 14th Annual Surf Nite in SLO! Join us for the California premiere of SATORI by South African filmmaker Rick Wall! The filmmaker, SATORI surfer Rod Torr, and South African surfer Shaun Tomson will attend for a Q&A hosted by Coast 104.5’s Adam Montiel.
Opening for SATORI will be a 30-minute documentary by filmmaker Graham Nash, and produced for Vans: CAN'T STEAL OUR VIBE. This doc follows the journey of four pro-surfers to provide surfboards and a positive outlet to disadvantaged youngsters to help overcome the adversities of poverty, violence and abuse. Filmmaker Graham Nash will attend, along with pro surfer Dane Gudauskas.
There will be a wine/beer bar in the lobby beginning at 6:00pm. A raffle of surf-themed items will be part of the excitement that evening, as well as an After Party at the Festival Lounge in downtown San Luis Obispo.
Surf Nite in SLO is presented by Surfing for Hope, a non-profit organization in Pismo Beach created to help inspire people challenged by cancer through the positive energy of surfing.
Surf Nite is also presented by the City of Pismo Beach and sponsored by Cliffs Hotel and Spa, SeaVenture, Sycamore Mineral Springs Resort, Apple Farm Inn, Coast 104.5, Quality Suites San Luis Obispo, Anthony Peckham and Hilary Saner.
