LS/FF 2019… it’s coming
Looking back reminds me why we’re so looking forward to this year’s London Surf / Film Festival – it’s the surf, film, art, music, culture, community and good times. Check out this little recap of the last 8 years in just 20 seconds!
2019 is the 9th Edition of LS/FF and we’re stoked to welcome Vans onboard as our presenting partner. We founded the London Surf / Film Festival around our kitchen table late one night in 2011 and have been stoked to grow it into a truly international celebration of the cream of surf culture. We’ve worked with some of the most exciting and relevant surf creatives across the globe to bring to the UK the very best of surf culture: the movies, the makers, the doers, the artists, the icons.
We’ve premiered more than 200 handpicked films at London Surf / Film Festival from documentaries, travelogues and biopics to experimental arthouse movies, animations, narrative features, comedies as well as the very best surf action that showcases the very pinnacle of ‘eyes-wide’ surfing right in that moment.
We champion both established names and emerging talents bringing to the big screen those films that most resonate with us, from international premieres to the cream of short films from homegrown filmmakers. We’re stoked to have premiered the most relevant movies of our times from highly anticipated, award-winning features to underground projects, presented by the most exciting names in surfing, icons like Rob Machado and world champion Stephanie Gilmore to big wave pioneers including Albee Layer, Paige Alms, Chris Bertish, chargers like Laura Enever, Dion Agius, Chippa Wilson and explorers such as Keith Malloy and Kepa Acero, plus artists, photographers, musicians, writers, directors and more.
LS/FF was founded by surfers, writers and filmmakers dedicated to celebrating and elevating the culture that exists in surfing… can’t wait to share what we have lined up for this year!
9th Annual London Surf / Film Festival is hosted 9 – 12th October 2019 at the iconic Regent Street Cinema, the birthplace of British Cinema in the heart of central London. Tickets will go on sale this week. Sign up to our news letter to find out first what’s coming >>> HERE
