The Annual London Surf / Film Festival is the UK’s largest celebration of contemporary surf culture bringing to these shores the very best surf films from around the globe – a hand picked line up of must-see premieres to inspire, excite & entertain while redefining the parameters of possibility.
Now in its 12th year, we’ve grown the event organically, working with some of the most exciting surf filmmakers from across the globe, hosting packed out premieres and audiences with some of the most inspiring names in surfing. The festival has become a must attend for surfers from the 4 corners of our island.
Founded in 2011 by surfers and writers Chris Nelson and Demi Taylor, it began, where all the best ideas start life – around the kitchen table, in the deep mid winter, after a few good waves. The aim was to bring together the UK surfing tribes to share the stoke, the storytelling and the cream of surf culture.
Over the past decade or so, we’ve been delighted to premiere some 260 film presented by the most exciting & unexpected names in surf & culture inc. 7x world champion Stephanie Gilmore, icons like Rob Machado and Stacy Peralta, big wave pioneers Paige Alms & Albee Layer, chargers Torrey Meister, Chippa Wilson & Dion Agius, explorers like Kepa Acero, Keith Malloy surf creatives including Lee Ann Curren, Alex Knost plus leading filmmakers, musicians, artists, photographers, writers & the most relevant names in surf culture
For many of the films we showcase at London Surf / Film Festival, it will be the only chance you’ll get to watch them as they were intended to be enjoyed – on the big screen, in surround sound, accompanied by a packed crowd of likeminded individuals. Surf movie releases have always been community happenings – the original “social media” experience and that is exactly what the LS/FF is all about.
