About

The New York Women's Surf Film Festival, a project of Lava Girl Surf, celebrates the filmmakers and female wave riders who live to surf, highlighting their sense of adventure, connection to the ocean and love for their own communities and those they discover.


Purpose

In New York, we'll share through film the spirit and inspiration of women wave riders from around the globe. Surfing is our passion. As women surfers, we share a special connection through our mutual love for the ocean and the creative energy sparked by celebrating our adventure stories. The New York Women’s Surf Film Festival aims to generate awareness of this special subculture and the local businesses that support them. 


 

Testimonials

 

The NY Women’s Surf Film Festival makes it on my very short list of festivals I trust to ignite all aspects of storytelling when holding a screening. Connection, inspiration, and spirit. So grateful this festival exists. 
— Devyn Bisson, Filmmaker "The Wave I Ride" 
Showing one of your films in front of a big crowd is a nerve-racking experience, but working with Davina at her festival was so smooth that all my fears were gone as soon as saw the quality of the festival she had organized. The New York Women Surf Film Festival not only allows women’s work to be shared and showcased, it inspires us to create more.
— Marina Zawisza, Filmmaker "3KY1K"
LUNA Bar is proud, and so very fortunate, to be able to partner with the NY Women’s Surf Film Festival in 2016. This celebration of incredible women from around the world and their love of surfing (both behind the camera as well as in front of it) is a perfect match for LUNA. We look forward to supporting this year’s festival, and to supporting its growth in 2017 and beyond.
— Will Yandell, Regional Marketing Manager at LUNA.
