Films, fun and a Fish Pub

30 Aug 2011 0 Share

In 2012, the Yallingup Surfilm Festival moves to a brand new venue at Clancy's Fish Pub in Dunsborough.

Clancy's Fish Pubs have been serving excellent food and local brews to West Australians for over 20 years.  Their Dunsborough venue, which opens this summer, sits on stunning terraces surrounded by native bush on the site of the old Banamah Wildlife Park on Caves Road.

Festival Director Jesca Maas said she was excited that the Yallingup Surfilm Festival would be the first major event to be held at the new Clancy's, located in Western Australia's south-west region and spiritual home of surfing.

"Both Clancy's and the Yallingup Surfilm Festival are family-friendly, community conscious, environmentally aware, ocean loving and of course West Australian.

"Clancy's is legendary for its entertainment and a fun atmosphere for all ages, and the location of its new venue between Dunsborough and Yallingup on Caves Road is going to make it one of the south-west's most visible and iconic places, and a perfect fit for our festival," Jesca said.

The Yallingup Surfilm Festival will be held both indoor and outdoors at Clancy's, with the main festival features shown on the terraces, which overlook a chain of ponds and natural bush.

"One of the things that's most exciting for us is the range of hospitality options our festival attendees will have at Clancy's.

"They'll be able to enjoy anything from fish and chips on the lawn to a full dinner with a bottle of fine wine from the region at a table above the action, all with an uninterrupted view of the screen," Jesca said.

Film submissions for the Yallingup Surfilm Festival close on 1 October 2011, and entry is open to anyone wishing to share their love of surf and its culture through either short or feature length films.

A panel of industry specialists from the surfing and film worlds, including publisher of Surfing World Magazine Doug Lees and renowned photographers Jon Frank and Ian Regnard, will judge all films entered.

The finalists will be screened under the stars at Clancy's from Friday 20 to Sunday 22 January 2012. Films will be in the running for Best Feature, Best Short, Best Cinematography and the People's Choice Award.

The film screenings are just one element of the three-day festival. It will also showcase music, art and workshops, all with a surf culture theme. More information and submission guidelines can be found at www.yallingupsurfilm.com.au...
