Surfing, as a cultural movement, is reaching its maturity and is going in as many different directions as there are ways to enjoy its act.
The surf scene in Donostia – San Sebastián has its own style, and is developping its way of seeing and being perceived. Now it is possible to analyse the relationships created by surfing , the local community and its urban landscape.
This year the festival creates the workshops, invites several international filmmakers of prestige, integrates them in the local context of the La Zurriola beach, and interacts with local up and coming filmmakers.

This exercise, under the leadership of Juan Aizpitarte, presents new ways of creating moving images. Coordinating the different cinematographic styles of the filmmakers, and with the participation of the classes part takers, we propose the filming of “collaborative” 5 min. short film themed around Donostia and its idiosyncrasies.
To fullfill this objective, we propose 2 clear edges. The first is to film with Iphones, claiming this way how a huge critical mass of users of portable devices can “make moving images”, a symbol of democracy. Also, we can explore the potential of these devices.

The second, is the investigation of narrative resources that can create a bridge between action videos, film script and story telling, the creation of a photographic storyboard and the editing of a film under the video clip genre, discipline.

To promote the local production, show up and coming, amateur film makers, students, how to work with alternative technical and narrative resources.
Facilitate the access to new filming tools, and film distribution schemes.
Enrich traditional surf narration with elements from classic cinema.
