EXCLUSIVE SCREENING OF KAI NEVILLE’S “MODERN COLLECTIVE”

NEW YORK SURF FILM FESTIVAL PRESENTED BY JET BLUE AIRWAYS

AND THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC ANNOUNCES THE FIRST EXCLUSIVE

SCREENING OF KAI NEVILLE’S “MODERN COLLECTIVE”


New York, NY, September 17, 2009- The New York Surf Film Festival

presented by Jet Blue Airways and the Dominican Republic will be showing

the first exclusive screening of “Modern Collective” on Saturday 26th, 2009 at

TriBeCa Theaters. The movie is still currently in production but audiences will

get to see six chapters of the voyage. The final version of Modern Collective

will be out in November.

The “Modern Collective” is a collective of six surfers set out on a voyage to

alter one’s perception of modern day surfing. Forget pre-dawn charging.

Forget golden lighting. Forget glassy waters. They ignore perfect point breaks

in favor of chunky onshore wedges. This is about high performance, state of

the art, modern-as-hell. Onshore=keepers.

Follow these vogue individuals and obtain a candid look at what a session is

actually like with the worlds best. The future has already happened! You will

just be watching the replay.

Starring Dane Reynolds, Dion Agius, Yadin Nicol, Mitch Coleborn, Dusty

Payne and Jordy Smith.

“Modern Collective” premieres along with Russell Brownley’s “Gum For My

Boat”, a story of Hope focusing on the Bangladesh Surf Club and its

members, The “Red Bull Surfing Mentawais” movie, with the now famous

Jordy Smith Rodeo, and finally rounding out the film block with a teaser for

Alex DePhillipo’s first high definition surf film “Dark Fall”, a look at the lifestyle

of a cold water surfer as well as the most prestigious time for a New Jersey

surfer-Fall.

All these films premiere on the Saturday night of the New York Surf Film

Festival, September 26th at 10:10PM.
