New Smyrna Beach, FL – We had an amazing June event over Father’s Day Weekend at Atlantic Center for the Arts.  We are thrilled to have had Scott Hulet, pictured above with Kevin, John, and Cam Richards, with his new book Flow Violento, for sale now at The Surfer’s Journal.  Grab your copy today.  We were also honored to have filmmaker Joaquin Azulay attend the screening of African Territory II, and do a Q and A with us after the show.  Thank you to all the filmmakers who submitted their work to the festival.  We sincerely appreciate all the hard work you’ve done to make it this far.  

Photos are up at our Pixiesite from June 14th and 15th.  Thank you for coming out.  Our next festival event will be August 17, 2024, at the News Journal Center at 221 N Beach St., Daytona Beach, in partnership with Daytona State College and the School of Digital Media Production.
