While you’re deciding which Standard Boardshort is your favorite, you can gear up for the 4th Annual NYSFF slated for September 15-17, 2011! The New York Surf Film Festival is the premier showcase for international independent surf film. The mission of the New York Surf Film Festival is to provide filmmakers who are exploring the diversity of surfing an opportunity to present their work to a larger audience. As surf culture becomes more popular, the notion of what it means to be a surfer expands. The New York Surf Film Festival’s aim is to build upon and shape the idea of what a surf movie is, while fostering the growth of this global community in NYC.
The 2011 International Screening Panel includes:
• Grant Washburn, Big Wave Surfer
• Ron Schein, Surf Journalist + Artist
• Gerry Lopez, Mr. Pipeline
• Micah Abrams, Senior Action Sports Editor, ESPN + Screenwriter
• Buzzy Kerbox, Legend

It’s 4th of July weekend. By all means, go find a body of water somewhere (Pool Side at The Standard, Hollywood perhaps?), throw something delicious on the BBQ, grab a beer, and work on that sunburn. All we’re saying is that maybe you should consider taking a few breaks this weekend. You know, get yourself in some air conditioning, something sweet to munch on, and maybe see a few good movies. We don’t mean the latest blockbuster, come on, that’s not our style. Nope, we have a much much better suggestion. This weekend, those wacky cinematic geniuses at Everything Is Terrible have partnered up with one of our besties, The Cinefamily, to bring you The 2nd Annual Everything Is Festival!
It’s been 25 years since Ferris Bueller hit theaters. We know. It’s shocking. It feels like yesterday we were introduced to the saga — to quote the movie’s logline — ”one man’s struggle to take it easy”.
The LA Film Festival recently held a moment of honor by creating a standing room screening at the Ferris Bueller’s Day Off outdoor screening hosted by Arts Brookfield at FIGat7th (Formerly 7+Fig). For more information from the fest this week, check out the LAFF blog.
Here’s a little trip down memory lane (below).
