“The feature programme showcases the very pinnacle of surf filmmaking on a global scale. It delivers a full range of perspectives on waveriding from cutting edge performance in films like Dear Suburbia and Sally to thought provoking features such as Otelo Burning and documentaries like The Boardroom that celebrate the roots of our culture,” says London Surf / Film Festival Director Chris Nelson. “I’m hugely excited about the line up which includes 5 huge European Premieres and 4 UK Premieres and award winning films from USA, Australia, Tasmania, Norway, Brazil and South Africa. The cinematography is stunning, the sound tracks are epic while the surfing pushes things to a whole new level – I can’t wait to see the films played out on the big screen in this cultural capital to an amped and knowledgeable British audience.’
The full line up includes The Shorties short film competition presented by National Trust, created to support and promote homegrown filmmaking talents on the world stage. The weekend’s celebration will be accompanied by a gallery show plus talks with filmmakers of note including Directors Markus Davids and Inge Wegge.
