The Shorties x Surfdome are live!

London Surf / Film Festival Shorties x Surfdome Go Live!

Swell is in bound, there’s a chill in the air, Autumn is afoot. To coincide with this, the most glorious time of the surfing calendar, we’ve just revealed our longlist of Shorties. 13 of the very best shorts from the cream of homegrown filmmaking talent have made the cut. That’s some 60 minutes of surf movie magic lined up right there – just what the lunch hour was created for!

We need your help in selecting The Shorties to be premiered on the big screen at this year’s festival. And this year, marking the 10th anniversary, a £1000 filmmaking fund will be awarded to the winning short! Until 6th November, we’re asking you – the esteemed surfing community – to support your favourite films by watching, sharing and voting for them>>> HERE 

We’re super stoked to welcome our friends at Surfdome on board as presenting partners for the 10th Edition of our annual Shorties short film contest – the strand which sits at the very heart of our international celebration of surf culture. “LS/FF is a reliable gold mine of surf culture and talent and The Shorties is one of its richest veins, always packed with unexpected nuggets,” says Surfdome. “It’s a fantastic space for new and established filmmakers to express themselves in shorter form, and we’re stoked to be supporting it – we can’t wait to see what this edition has in store.”

Voting is open now and will run until midday 6th November. Check out the longlisted entries >>HERE and support your favourites.

The shortlist is decided by a combination of votes cast by the surf community and the screening panel. The selected films will be shown on the big screen as part of the 10th Annual London Surf / Film Festival x Vans hosted 2-4 December at the iconic Genesis Cinema in East London.

Tickets for the festival will be released soon. For the inside line, sign up to our newsletter >> HERE.
