For the first time in 3 years, the amaysim Australian Surf Movie Festival (ASFM) returns to venues across Australia, and SWIFF is proud to bringing you ASMF Swell Chasers - To Swell and Back, with 5 jaw-dropping films that capture the world’s best big wave surfers battling the biggest waves on the planet. Featuring some of the world’s best big wave riders, including: Kai Lenny, Rodrigo Koxa, Matahi Drollet, Ross Clarke-Jones, Dan Corbett, Bradley Norris, Henry Davies, Shane Ackerman, Jake Osman and many more.

All films featured are directed by AACTA Award-winning cinematographer and multi-award winning surf film producer Tim Bonython, who has over four decades of experience filming and documenting surfing. Tim has spent the last 4 years chasing massive swell events for this year’s festival - an adventure that has taken him around the globe.

Recording some of the most ground-breaking scenes in recent big wave surfing memory, including pioneering big wave surfer Kai Lenny riding the futuristic foil surfboard in gigantic surf at Jaws, and fellow big wave rider Rodrigo Koxa breaking the world record for the biggest wave ever ridden.

To see these big wave gladiators charging down monster waves is just the most exciting thing,” said Tim, who is not only the films’ main cinematographer, but also the founder of ASMF.

The five awe-inspiring films include big wave surfers at Nazaré in Portugal, Mullaghmore in Ireland; Teahupo’o in Tahiti, at The Right in Western Australia, and at Cloudbreak in Fiji.

ASFM promises to bring surf cinema fans to the very edge of their seats, witnessing some of the world’s wildest waves with a stellar cast of hardcore chargers and spectacular, spine-tingling swells. Yew!

Recommended all ages. Please note, this session will have an intermission.
