Know a budding movie director? Have a video camera lying around that needs to be used? Make a short movie about surfing and it just might premiere at the Parrish Art Museum!

The museum, located in Water Mill, has invited East End filmmakers to submit short surf movies to be considered for Atlantic Vibrations, Volume 2. Selected films will premiere at an outdoor screening at the Parrish Art Museum on Friday, August 22 at 8 p.m.

Atlantic Vibrations was originally created as a platform for emerging and established filmmakers in order to acknowledge the connections between art, film, and surfing. Volume 1 debuted last summer at the Parish to a sold out audience, and featured a surf-themed raffle in addition to fish tacos and Corona beer. Because of last year’s success, the program is being moved outdoors to accommodate a larger audience this summer.

There is no entry fee for submissions.

Films will be selected for the screening by filmmaker Michael Halsband, artist Mike Solomon, and surf film producer Tyler Breuer.

The short movies, which can be any genre from experimental to documentary, must be shorter than 10 minutes. Settings for the films are not restricted to the East End, but participants must reside on the South Fork between Westhampton and Montauk.

Interested filmmakers are asked to send a link to their video and a brief synopsis of the project to Andrea Grover, Curator of Special Projects, at [email protected].

The deadline for entries is July 23.
