Submissions are now open to the 9th Annual London Surf / Film Festival!
Hosted 9 – 12 October 2019, London Surf / Film Festival is a showcase of the cream of international surf culture. Bringing to the UK the very best surf films from across the globe – a handpicked line up of premieres of hotly anticipated, award winning features and underground projects to stoke the fires, London Surf / Film Festival celebrates the creativity that exists in surfing.
Filmmakers are now invited to submit their short and feature length films exploring all aspects and angles of surfing and surf culture for consideration for this year’s festival programme. Submissions close August 18th and you can find more details and enter online HERE.
While the main festival is open to filmmakers from across the globe, The Shorties short film category was created to exclusively champion homegrown talents. Filmmakers from or based in Britain and Ireland are invited to submit their short films of up to 5 minutes in length that explore any aspect or angle of surfing through documentary, comedy, action, arthouse, animation or anything in between. Shorties submissions close 9th September 2019 and you can find more details and enter online HERE.
We’re delighted to offer a platform to the most exciting established and emerging surf creatives, bringing to the UK the very best in independent filmmaking. We’ve been fortunate to work with standout surfers and creatives since founding the LS/FF in 2011, curating broad reaching programmes that celebrate the underground while embracing the most hotly anticipated new releases, and as always we’ll be championing those film projects that bring a fresh perspective to our culture, through exceptional story telling, surfing or cinematography.
Films will be considered by the panel for awards including: Best Film, Best Documentary, Best Cinematography, Best British Film, Shortie of the Year and Viewer’s Choice, as voted for by the knowledgeable London Surf / Film Festival audience.
London Surf / Film Festival 2019 will be hosted at the iconic Regent Street Cinema, the birthplace of British Cinema.
