Approaching Lines tell good stories well on screen, in print, on line, and in person. Bringing to life the stories that matter as journalists, screenwriters, editors, producers and curators, they find the hook, the line, the story and put them into words that resonate, developing original, creative concepts into fully-fledged projects that always deliver.
London Surf / Film Festival is an Approaching Lines Production.
