General Admission

Men of Wood And Foam tells the story of the birth of the surf boom, a golden decade when surfing was transformed from a cultish offshoot of lifesaving into a sport and culture with its own music, movies, fashions and heroes. Underpinning this transition was a small group of artisans "The Brookvale Six", who moved from backyard wooden surfboard production along Sydney’s eastern beaches to a former market garden at Brookvale, close to the favoured wave spots where they could experiment with "blowing foam" to make lighter and more responsive surfboards from plastics.

Using in-depth interviews with many of the leading surf personalities of the day, seamless re-enactment sequences and rarely-seen archival footage covering surfing in Australia across seven decades, Men of Wood & Foam tells this important story before it is too late.


Band of Frequencies

They call the Sunshine Coast home yet the Band of Frequencies has been one of the most diverse outfits in Australia for more than a decade, incorporating acid rock, modern jazz and funk into an amazing repertoire of original music. Band of Frequencies will perform a jazzy set and original soundtrack sounds before and after the film.
