Young filmmakers wanted

A SURFER being consumed by a 10m barrel, falling on his back and flipping inside the wave is a taste of the type of footage a Coolangatta gallery is chasing from young surfers.

Aspiring surfers, filmmakers, and photographers are encouraged to showcase their own short films as part of the ongoing film sessions Kallalu Gallery is hosting on Saturday nights.

The gallery will screen short films by locals in the hour before the featured films by professional surf filmmakers are shown.

After the success of the premier of 'Uncut and Raw' by surf filmmaker 'Shagga', the venue has decided to extend the event and encourage the local community to be a part of it.

Kallalu Gallery owner Julie Maloney said they are focused to help the local community, especially young surfers.

"We want the grommets (young surfers) to live their dreams, find their passion and run with it," Miss Maloney said.

The idea was to showcase surf movies to for young surfers to aspire to, and surfing families to come and enjoy.

Miss Maloney is also seeking to make the invitation for film and photography students to have a space to showcase their work.

She said she was looking to do Saturday and Sunday afternoon sessions over winter.

The film viewing starts at 6.30pm on Saturday nights and tickets are $5 for adults and children are admitted for free.
