Submissions for the 10th Annual London Surf / Film Festival X Vans are now open. Surfing and surf culture are wide open to creative interpretation and we welcome submissions from across the globe and across the genres that explore all aspects and angles from documentary to action, stop-frame to animation and anything in between.

LS/FF plans to run October 2020 in line with government guidelines relating to events and the evolving Covid-19 global situation. As things remain fluid and in order to support creatives during these uncertain times, we are waiving filmmaker submission fees for this year’s event for both features and short films.

The London Surf / Film Festival is a showcase for the cream of international surf culture. We source the very best in independent films by both leading lights and emerging surf filmmakers to curate a line-up that celebrates the underground while embracing the most hotly anticipated new releases, creating a broad-reaching programme that consists of the very best of independent filmmaking.

Since the beginning we’ve been stoked to work with talented filmmakers from across the world to showcase some incredible premieres at the festival, hosting many filmmakers and surfers from the likes of 6 times world champion Stephanie Gilmore, freesurf legend Rob Machado, big wave chargers Paige Alms and Albee Layer, plus surf explorer Kepa Acero, multi award winning directors including Keith Malloy, Kai Neville, Ava Warbrick, Peter Hamblin, Marion Poizeau, Chris McClean, Ian Thomson, Julian and Joaquin Azulay, George Trimm plus writers, photographers, commentators, musicians, artists and more.

All screened features are considered for prestigious awards including London Surf / Film Festival Best Feature Film, Best Documentary, Best Cinematography – as selected by the Screening Panel, comprising experts from the worlds of surfing, filmmaking and media – as well as the Viewer’s Choice, as voted for by the knowledgeable UK audience.
