Film 3: Fortune Wild. Ben Gulliver, CAN, 2013, 22 mins
UK Premiere. A small group of surfers set out to seek their own kind of riches on some of the most remote beaches of the Canadian coast.

Surfing, camping and foraging for food on the area’s unspoiled beaches, the three surfers step away from the modern world and into a quieter, more attuned and more self-sufficient existence.
“If Wes Anderson vibes, grizzly bears, Pete Devries, and the vivid wilderness of Canada sounds like a cocktail on which you would like to sip, then The Fortune Wild is a film for you.” STAB Magazine
