New and independent surf documentary films are hard to come by.  Years of planning, scrapping together funds, surfers, and swell can be a disheartening, long and winding process.  What Ben Gulliver has delivered in The Seawolf surpasses expectations of what modern surf films hope to accomplish.  Cold water discoveries all over the world, an incredible original score, and the absolute highest quality performance surfing seen lately stands alone this winter as the best surf film we’ve seen in a while.  Hold on tight.  Ben will be at the festival to discuss his latest work with fans.
