2012 Coverage Highlights
London Surf / Film Festival 2012 was another ‘standing room only’ success – thanks to everyone who came and all the filmmakers who submitted their projects to us. Across 4 nights we showcased 13 of the year’s very best features from across the globe including 5 huge European premieres, 4 UK premieres, the pick of international shorts plus the very best short films from homegrown filmmaking talent in the culmination of The Shorties – our short film competition open to filmmakers from or based the UK and Ireland. Alongside we curated a creative space ‘The Approaching Lines Room’ where we hosted a gallery show of works from leading photographers, artists and artisans, a display of some of the most progressive boards being shaped in the UK, talks, Q+A’s, workshops, live music and beers.
The festival was featured in the media in publications from The Guardian, Time Out, Outside Magazine and The Discovery Channel to The Surfer’s Path, Carve, MagicSeaweed, Wavelength, Surf Europe, Cooler, Huck, Surf Girl, Desillusion Magazine and beyond. For a snap shot of the coverage, check below:
