A new documentary celebrating one of the few women big wave surfers to conquer the incredible swells at Nazaré in Portugal is screening next weekend as part of the virtual Virgin Media Dublin International Film Festival.

BIGvsSMALL follows courageous Portuguese surfer Joana Andrade as she confronts her fears of the water, and takes on an unusual training programme in the frozen lakes of Finland with a champion free diver revered in her own right.

The film streams next Sunday 16 March from 4pm for a limited time for viewers on the island of Ireland, and includes a Q&A with the director Minna Dufton hosted by film-maker Claire Dix.

Tickets are available now at the VMDIFF website HERE.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
