Oahu, HI (January 21, 2019) - Director Brent Storm’s film White Rhino sells out Hawaiian Premiere and takes home win for Best Surf Film at this year’s Waimea Ocean Film Festival.

US/Canadian Filmmaker Brent Storm’s latest release White Rhino (a surf film starring Bruce Irons, Nathan Fletcher, Mark Healey, and legendary Surf Photographer Brian Bielmann) is proud to be on the receiving end of this year’s Best Film in the Surf Category at the Waimea Ocean Film Festival.

White Rhino is a parallel story from the Surfers and Photographers who’s witnessed three historic swells that hit the shorelines of the South Pacific in 2011-2012.

Brian Bielmann takes the audience on an edge of your seat adventure as we discover the stories behind some of his most iconic photos and what really transpired on those epic days in surf.

On December 9, 2018 - White Rhino also held a sold-out show at Surfer [the Bar] on Oahu, HI. The Hawaiian Premiere lined the walls of Surfer [the Bar] with over 250 people in attendance for a first look at the big wave surf film. Bruce Irons, Mark Healey, Dave Wassel and Kalani Chapman were all on hand and hung around to entertain the crowd in a post Q&A.

“Whats unique about this film is that it was created on the labor of love; it was completely produced without a budget,” said Storm. “It began as a passion project that myself and Brian Bielmann originally decided to collaborate on but would not have been possible if it wasn't for the support of the surf community.”

The film has also won Best Cinematography at the Carolina Surf Film Festival and is set to continue the festival circuit in 2019. The film will screen again at major festivals world-wide including the Newport Beach Film Festival this April in California.
