June Photo Series: Beach & Surf Movies

In May, BLFJ launched its Instagram account to circulate various stills, photos, and images from classic and contemporary films from around the world. Each month, the editors will chose a theme and, over the course of the month, post images related to that theme.

On June 10th, we’ll post the last image from our inaugural “noir” theme. Inspired by the emerging California summer, the late Annette Funicello, and John Engle’s issue 80 article “August and Everything After: A Half-Century of Surfing in Cinema, from June 11th-30th we’ll be posting images related to beach and surf movies.

If you have image or future theme suggestions, post a comment below, send us a tweet, or post a message on Facebook or Google+.
