Why we’re coming to Boardmasters

This year, the British Film Institute (BFI) is celebrating Britain on Film; a three-year project that reveals hidden histories and forgotten stories of people and places from the UK’s key film and TV archives.Cornwall has a rich heritage and history surrounding surfing and shipping. To celebrate this initiative and the popularity of surfing in Cornwall, We’ll be screening a series of of sea and surfing short films at the world famous Boardmasters music festival. Just days later we are running an outdoor screening of Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003) at Kimberley Park in Falmouth.
