LS/FF 10… THE DROP
The 10th Edition London Surf / Film Festival x Vans hit the capital 2-4 December 2021, bringing to the UK a handpicked line-up of the very best surf films from across the globe – hotly anticipated premieres, documentaries to inspire, travelogues to stir the wanderlust and mind blowing surfing.
Accompanied by Q+A’s and ‘Audiences with…’ some of the world’s most exciting names in surfing including big wave chargers Joana Andrade, Gearoid McDaid and Noah Lane, surfer / musician Lee-Ann Curren, surf stylist Margaux Arramon-Tucoo plus award winning filmmakers including Minna Dufton, Peter Hamblin and Lewis Arnold, live music from special guests Jack Bessant and Lee-Ann Curren, a story telling work shop, good times and more, LS/FF is the essential celebration of the cream of surf culture.
Founded in 2011, LS/FF has brought to the UK some 240 World, European Premiere and UK Premieres. But it’s about more than that. Founded a decade ago around our kitchen table, after a few good deep mid-winter waves, we had the idea of bringing together the UK surf community to share the stoke, the storytelling, the culture. We’ve made friends, films and some fine cocktails along the way and LS/FF has grown to become the gathering for the global waveriding collective, championing emerging and established creatives, weaving together a true showcase of the very best of surfing in the here and now.
For many of the movies we premiere, the festival is the only chance to watch them as they were intended to be enjoyed – on the big screen, accompanied by likeminded folk – the original “social media” experience.
