The London Surf / Film Festival is looming at the end of the month (22/23 Sept & 30 Sept/1 Oct … full line up announced soon) and the legendary Shorties comp is live.
Featuring the cream of British and Irish filmmakers the entries up for being shown on the big screen and in the mix for the career boosting Shortie of the Year are all HERE so check ’em out and vote for your favourites. But cast your vote by Thursday as voting closes then.
Short films are a central pillar of modern surf culture, a creative outlet for sharing stories and inspiring stoke. Here at the London Surf / Film Festival we wanted to celebrate the short and give home grown filmmaking talent a platform to bring their visions to the surf world so we established ‘The Shorties’ which has fast become one of the most prestigious short film competitions for surf filmmakers in the world.
While the main festival is a showcase for international filmmaking, The Shorties short film contest is open exclusively to filmmakers from or based in Britain and Ireland. Surfing and surf culture are wide open to interpretation so we welcome film entries of up to 5 minutes in length that explore all aspects and angles through documentary, stop-frame, animation or anything in between from both emerging talents and leading lights.
In this competition, it’s not about whether your waves are big or small, it’s about the way you chose to shoot them. Or don’t. After all there’s more than one way to tell a surf story…
