The Surfer on Stan – Stan,Australia’s unrivalled home of original productions, today released the first look clip of the Stan Original Film The Surfer with Academy Award® winner Nicolas Cage (Dream Scenario, Leaving Las Vegas) ahead of its world premiere at the 2024 Cannes Film Festival.

Director Lorcan Finnegan’s (Vivarium) psychological thriller The Surfer, will premiere at the 2024 Cannes Film Festival in Official Selection for the Midnight Screenings section this weekend. 

The Stan Original Film The Surfer joins a long legacy of classic Australian films premiering at Cannes including Baz Luhrmann’s Strictly Ballroom (1992), Moulin Rouge! (2001), Stefan Elliot’s Priscilla, Queen of the Desert (1994) and more recently the Stan Original Film Nitram (2021).

Written by Thomas Martin, The Surfer is an intensely unnerving feature film shot in a single location in Yallingup in Western Australia.

Alongside Cage, the film stars an impressive Australian ensemble cast including Julian McMahon (Nip/Tuck), Nic Cassim (Mr Inbetween), Miranda Tapsell (The Dry), Alexander Bertrand (Australian Gangster), Justin Rosniak (Last King of the Cross), Rahel Romahn (Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga), Finn Little (Stan Exclusive Series Yellowstone), and Charlotte Maggi (Rebel Moon – Part One: A Child on Fire).

When a man returns to Australia to buy back his family home after many years in the US, he is humiliated in front of his teenage son by a group of local surfers who claim ownership over the secluded beach of his childhood.

Wounded, he defies them and remains at the beach, demanding acceptance. As the conflict escalates, he is brought right to the edge of his sanity and his entire identity is thrown into question.

The Surfer, an Australian/Irish Co-Production, is produced by Tea Shop Productions, Robert Connolly’s Arenamedia, Lovely Productions and Gramercy Park Media with support from Screenwest through the Western Australian Production Attraction Incentive.

North.Five.Six (formerly Mossbank) is handling international sales. In Australia, The Surfer will release as a Stan Original Film, in partnership with CinemaPlus and Madman Entertainment, who will be releasing the film theatrically in Australia and New Zealand.

The Surfer on Stan – coming in 2024.
