Selected independent surf films to be screened
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 2 August, 2014 - London Surf / Film Festival is now accepting international feature submissions for the 4th annual London Surf / Film Festival presented by Reef. “The London Surf / Film Festival is an international celebration of the cream of contemporary surf culture,” says Festival Director Chris Nelson.
“The art of story telling and filmmaking is deeply embedded within our surfing heritage and we’re stoked to invite filmmakers from across the globe and across surfing genres to submit their films for consideration for this year’s festival programme. Surf culture is wide open to creative interpretation and we welcome films that explore all aspects and angles of surfing from action and documentary to stop-frame animation and anything in between.” Deadline for submissions is 31st August.
Selected features will be screened in the capital across four nights this autumn in a showcase of international surfing’s hottest releases. As always, the programme will consist of the very best in independent films by both leading lights and emerging surf filmmakers, award-winning features by internationally acclaimed directors, underground hits and UK premiers.
Features will be considered by the Screening Panel – comprised of experts from within the worlds of surfing, filmmaking and media – for prestigious awards including London Surf / Film Festival Best Film, Best Documentary and Best Cinematography, and will be eligible for the London Surf / Film Festival Viewer’s Choice, as voted for by the knowledgeable British audience.
Alongside a curated programme of screenings, we will be hosting the ever-popular Q+A sessions, conversations and workshops with directors, producers and waveriders of note allowing the audience to get closer to the action and meet the heroes and legends of screen and surf. We also have a packed programme of happenings around the festival this year… watch this space!
