The Margaret River Heart will host the world premier of Facing Monsters on Tuesday 24th August as part of the Cinefest Oz opening night. This captivating documentary follows big wave surfer Kerby Brown as he takes on some of the most dangerous waves off the Western Australian coast – and, it brings a touch of red carpet magic to Margaret River.
