“Kicking off our screening of the Summer Surf series brought everyone together on our beautiful beach at Hotel Del Coronado, and the evening couldn’t have been more perfect,” said Merridee Book, Executive Director from CIFF. “Dana Brown and Jesse Billauer (featured in the film) joined me for a post-film Q&A and inspired our participants with their stories. Respectfully, they are truly changing the way the world views surfing and action sports and I couldn’t think of more humble, gracious and impactful ambassadors for living to the fullest.

For Mike Hazlett, the screening epitomized the epitome of the San Diego experience.

“Watching one of Coronado’s most iconic sunset surf movies has been an experience I won’t forget,” said Hazlett.

If you missed the first event, don’t worry. There is a projection of A Life of Endless Summers: The Bruce Brown Story set for August 29. It has been postponed from the 2020 film festival due to the pandemic.

“It’s an intimate retrospective documentary about Bruce, his family, his films and his circle of friends,” Book said. “It captures a nostalgic snapshot of Bruce’s legacy that continues with the success of groundbreaking films directed by his filmmaker son, Dana Brown.”

This screening will be part of an event at the Hotel Del with a seaside lounge in partnership with the surf and snowboard brand ROXY. Activation of the lounge will run from August 23 to September 6, and over the course of the two weeks, ROXY will host famous surfers, surf lessons, workshops, tastings, and it will be a cool place to relax on the beach. .
