The Event

London Surf / Film Festival Returns for 8th Edition October 2018

Hosted 10 – 13 October at Regent Street Cinema followed by a week of pop up events, London Surf / Film Festival is the UK’s largest celebration of contemporary surf culture bringing to these shores the very best surf films from around the globe  – a hand picked line up of must-see premieres to inspire, excite & entertain while redefining the parameters of possibility.

Now in its 8th year, we’ve grown the event organically, working with some of the most exciting surf filmmakers from across the globe, hosting packed out premieres and audiences with some of the most inspiring names in surfing.

For many of the films we showcase at London Surf / Film Festival, it will be the only chance you’ll get to watch them as they were intended to be enjoyed – on the big screen, in surround sound, accompanied by a packed crowd of likeminded individuals. Surf movie releases have always been community happenings – the original “social media” experience and that is exactly what the LS/FF is all about.

The 7th annual London Surf / Film Festival presented by Reef went down in a blaze of stoke. Hosted across the capital, across two weeks we were thrilled to work with some of the most exciting filmmakers across the globe to bring to the UK the very best surf films for a celebration of the cream of international surf culture. Accompanied by talks and Q+A’s with heroes of the sea and screen, music from LeeAnn Curren and Colin Macleod, plus artisans, writers, the very best in art and culture, a gallery show of works from the UK’s leading artists and more, the festival has become a must attend for surfers from the 4 corners of our island.

Here’s a quick glimpse of what went down in 2017 and previous years.
