2) Thomas Campbell's SPROUT -- presentation of amazing globetrotting surf film from acclaimed artist Thomas Campbell will be preceded by a in theater acoustic performance by the UK-based band Mojave 3 (who also contributed to the soundtrack).
3) RESFEST Live - Emergency Broadcast Network and Hexstatic -- our closing night event will feature an audio visual event from VJ pioneers NYC's EBN and UK's Hexstatic. EBN will showcase their Video Baby Grand Piano, while Hexstatic will preview work of their forthcoming Master View DVD album.
