11th London Surf / Film Festival hits the capital 25-26 November at the iconic Riverside Studios, 2nd December at East London’s legendary Genesis Cinema, with pop up events in between. Bringing to the UK the very best surf films from across the globe – hotly anticipated premieres, documentaries to inspire, travelogues to stir the wanderlust and plus cinematography and surfing to blow minds, you’re not going to want to miss this. Full details londonsurffilmfestival.com
Accompanied by ‘Audiences with…’ some of the most exciting names in surfing including enigmatic hard chargers Balaram Stack and Tom Lowe, surf adventurers, The Knight Family, award winning filmmakers including Ben Gulliver, Mikey Corker, a very special Q+A with Dir. Lewis Arnold hosted by Looking Sideways’ Matt Barr, plus special guests, winter wetsuits from our friends at Finisterre up for grabs, workshops, good times and more, LS/FF is a true celebration of the cream of surf culture.
For many of the movies premiered, the festival is the only chance to watch them as they were intended to be enjoyed – on the big screen, accompanied by likeminded folk – the original “social media” experience.

Evening passes include entry to a whole night of film, a free beer from Sharp’s, goodies from Jimmy’s Iced Coffee plus a now iconic Ltd Edition tote bags for the first100 people each night.
