Minds by the Sea

If you missed the Outdoor Screening last night for the Byron Bay Film Festival, well… YOU REALLY MISSED OUT!

Dave Rastovich’s film Minds in the Water, accompanied by a series of incredible short films. Jack Johnson making a cameo appearance, alongside Will Conner, Rusty Miller and Garret Kato. The Full Moon put on a show, families and friends, food and blankets, it was an incredible community feast!

Enjoy the pics!
