“We champion projects that bring fresh perspectives, whether through exceptional cinematography, story telling or surfing,” says London Surf / Film Festival Director Demi Taylor. “Surf filmmaking is not about big cameras, or big waves, it’s about big ideas.” Get your short films in now!

“Over the last decade, we’ve worked with the most exciting surf filmmakers to bring to the UK films that represent the pinnacle of our culture – inspiring documentaries, travelogues to stir the wanderlust and jaw dropping surf performance, and this year is set to blow minds,” says LS/FF Director Chris Nelson. “The pleasure has been in premiering those films as they’re meant to be enjoyed – on the big screen, in a stoke filled cinema of like minded crew! See you there, for the 10th Edition!”

London Surf / Film Festival was founded a decade ago by surfers and writers Chris Nelson and Demi Taylor. It began, where all the best ideas start life, around the kitchen table, in the deep mid winter, after a few good waves. The aim was to bring together the UK surfing tribes to share the stoke, the storytelling and the cream of surf culture; after 9 editions, some 225 film premiers, with art shows, live music, talks and a whole heap of good times, it has grown to become a must attend gathering for the global waveriding collective.
