From Banff Mountain Film Festival jury member, Ciaran Flannery:
“Your protagonists are a pair of surfers. Your set pieces are the rocks, waves, and raw nature of Iceland. And your antagonist is visceral yet unseen – the unpredictable and relentless North Atlantic Wind. So what can a filmmaker do when he cannot control, much less visually capture a tempermental star? The filmmaker truly breaks new ground in creative achievement. He gets the wind drunk.”
Our heads are still spinning with The Accord winning this award! We never thought such a small, passion project type film could make it into Banff, let alone win an award. We’d like to sincerely thank the jury and staff at Banff and everyone who’s supported this film along the way. Thank you!
