Less than a week to go until September 13, and the much anticipated opening night of OmbakBali Festival, South East Asia’s one and only surf film fest. A stellar line-up is rolling in this year with all the latest and best surf films and documentaries, promising three action-filled nights filled with films, art, music and good times.
OmbakBali Surf Film Festival offers a high quality line-up of carefully selected surf documentary features, action films, shorts, animations and art. The festival embraces innovative, adventurous and independent filmmaking and its focus is on recent work. Both talented newcomers and more established directors are being celebrated during the three-day event. All screenings are free of charge and take place open-air, under the stars next to the sandy shores of Canggu beach in Bali, Indonesia.
OmbakBali Festival is a yearly event, and since its debut in Kuta in 2008, it has become a solid landmark to celebrate surfing and surf lifestyle in its most creative forms.
Eighteen carefully-selected films from 13 different countries light up the big screen this year, so expect three salty nights filled with surf travels, personal missions, mind-blowing stories and a whole lot of good surf. The complete line up of films can be found on www.ombakbalifestival.com.
This year’s event has a new venue, the one and only La Laguna which sprawls across the beachfront between Seminyak and Canggu. A bohemian wonderland of wooden caravans, ornamental gardens and tropical lagoon, this atmospheric open-air venue has a natural lawned amphitheatre perfect for screening movies under the stars.
Films start daily at sunset from September 13 to 15.
The complete festival program is free of charge.
