LDS Film Festival: Duke Kahanamoku Documentary ‘Waterman’ Opens Festival Kahanamoku, who died in 1968, also once used a surfboard to save eight men from a capsized fishing boat.

“Waterman,” an award-winning documentary on the life of Kahanamoku, will be the opening night feature of the LDS Film Festival, scheduled for March 2-5 at the SCERA Center for the Arts in Orem. This year, the festival is changing hands. Marshall and Michelle Moore, who are co-owners and directors, acquired the festival in March 2021. Their first decision was to rebrand the festival with a new name.

The LDS Film Festival, founded in 2001, provides filmmakers with a venue to showcase family and faith-based projects. The film “Waterman” tells the story of the life of Duke Paoa Kahanamoku, considered the father of modern surfing.

New co-owner and co-director Marshall Moore speaks at a former LDS film festival. This year’s festival includes feature films, documentaries, short films and music videos. The festival program can be found at ldsfilms.com.

“The films at this year’s festival are inherently different from each other, ranging from true stories that inspire to films that will make you laugh and make you cry,” said Marshall Moore. “Watching the movies, we realized there were still so many untold stories.” “After extensive deliberation, consultation with filmmakers and some polling, we have determined that a rebranding and renaming of the festival is necessary,” said Marshall Moore. “At the end of this year’s LDS Film Festival, we will change the name and rename the festival to Zion International Film Festival 2023.”

Many films will be presented for the first time at the festival and the filmmakers will be available to answer questions after the presentation. “After extensive deliberation, consultation with filmmakers and some polling, we have determined that a rebranding and renaming of the festival is necessary,” said Marshall Moore. “At the end of this year’s LDS Film Festival, we will change the name and rename the festival to Zion International Film Festival 2023.”
