The Save the Waves International Surf Film Festival will be held on Wednesday 15th March 2017 from 6.30pm until 10.30pm at Surf World, Currumbin.

Save The Waves Film Festival is an international film tour and fundraiser in November of each year – a benefit for Save The Waves’ environmental programs and campaigns. Movies alone can’t change the world – but the people who watch them can. Save The Waves documentary films and the Film Festival educate and inspire audiences to protect the coastline. Our interest is not to make films promoting nor glorifying activism, but rather film as activism.

Refreshments can be purchased at the venue.

To wrap-up the International Surfing Symposium 2017, a live music gig will be held at Currumbin RSL - Starring James Reyne and Band and Felicity Lawless and Band on Friday 17th March 2017 from 8.00pm until 11.00pm.

James Reyne Band .......

“I just feel that I’m getting better,” James Reyne says. “I’m a better singer and a better songwriter.” It’s a simple statement, but also remarkable – considering that this is an artist who has sold more than two million albums and written some of the most memorable Australian songs of all time. But as critic Ed Nimmervoll – who has followed James’ career since it started – remarked when he reviewed James’ 2012 album, Thirteen: “He’s a better singer today than ever, better songwriter, better lyricist. Every track on Thirteen tells you how important all three of those aspects of his craft are to him.” James Reyne’s songs have provided the soundtrack to endless Australian summers, including “The Boys Light Up”, “Reckless”, “Beautiful People”, “Lakeside”, “Daughters Of The Northern Coast”, “Fall Of Rome”, “Hammerhead”, “Motor’s Too Fast” and “Slave”. James has been a part of our lives since making an unforgettable debut on Countdown in 1979, with both arms in plaster (the result of being hit by a car, crossing Swanston Street in Melbourne). “Lucky for the Australian music industry that James Reyne chose to strut through its door in 1979,” Wendy Milson and Helen Thomas wrote in their 1986 book Pay To Play. “His was exactly the profile … an injection of chutzpah to recharge a listless business burdened with hard-to-market punk acts.”

The gig is open to conference delegates and the general public.

Introducing Felicity Lawless and Band .......

Visionary, Bohemian rocker, Felicity Lawless stimulates the senses and elevates the soul with music fusing Gypsy, world, rock and folk elements. She is on a mission to uplift the world with an ethereal style which  combines soaring vocals with passionate Spanish guitars. Her all-star band features guitar maestro Scott French (Lovestreet Studios, Cheap Fakes, Lamplights), Geoff Green (George, Women in Docs, Taylor) and Timothy Leayr (Phil Barlow, Ivory). Felicity Lawless and her band rocked the house at Bluesfest (2016), Blues on Broadbeach (2016), Island Vibe, Caloundra Music Festival and Perisher Peak Festival to name just a few.
