Shorties 2014 // Vote Now!


Voting is now open for the 2014 London Surf / Film Festival Shorties competition presented by REEF. 18 shorts from the very cream of British and Irish filmmaking talent have been longlisted and are available to watch, enjoy and vote  HERE – that’s some 90 minutes of surf films, right there so if you love surf movies, your day just got a whole lot better.

‘We started The Shorties as a way to support and showcase homegrown surf filmmakers and celebrate the wealth of creative talent on British and Irish shores,” says LS/FF Director Chris Nelson. “Every year we’re blown away by the sheer quality and diversity of films entered and this year, the bar has been raised yet again. It really does speak volumes about the creativity that is thriving in our surf community. After careful deliberation, 18 films from established, emerging, professional and student filmmakers have been longlisted, so we are asking the wider surf community to get involved, to support independent filmmaking and vote on their favourite entries in order to help us select the short list of films that will be showcased as part of this year’s London Surf / Film Festival.”

Voting is open until midnight on Sunday 14th September 2014. Check out the longlisted entries and cast your votes HERE.

The shortlist is decided by a combination of peer votes cast by the wider surf community and votes cast by the screening panel; the selected films will be showcased on the big screen as part of the 4th Annual London Surf / Film Festival, presented by REEF,  9-12 October 2014 at Genesis, East London. Tickets will be available from 12th September.
