Cape Town – It’s that time of the year again that Capetonians get to roll up their jeans and kick off their shoes for a relaxing movie festival on the beach!

It’s time again for the annual Wavescape Festival.

The fest was born out of a love of surfing and ocean culture, and the simple idea of sharing these good feelings with an audience.

Eleven years on and it’s still going strong.

This year the festival is divided into 5 different parts.

Here are 5 things you need to know:

1) Art Board Exhibition & Auction
