Swell is on the horizon, the wind is threatening to go offshore, Autumn is here.

To coincide with this, the most glorious time of year, London Surf / Film Festival x Vans has just dropped the longlist for the 10th Edition of The Shorties short film contest presented by Surfdome. Settle in for some 60 minutes of surf movie magic over on the LS/FF site. This is just what lunch breaks were made for!

London Surf / Film Festival needs your help in selecting The Shorties to be premiered on the big screen at this year’s festival. They are asking you – the esteemed surfing community – to support your favourite films by watching and voting for them. And this year, marking the 10th anniversary LS/FF has announced that a £1000 filmmaking fund will be awarded to the winning short.

The hotly contested ‘homegrown filmmaking’ category at the heart of the international festival has longlisted 13 outstanding films from some of the best British & Irish creatives.

“LS/FF is a reliable gold mine of surf culture and talent and The Shorties is one of its richest veins, always packed with unexpected nuggets,” says Surfdome. “It’s a fantastic space for new and established filmmakers to express themselves in shorter form, and we’re stoked to be supporting it – we can’t wait to see what this edition has in store.”

Voting is open now and will run until midday 6th November. Check out the longlisted entries at londonsurffilmfestival.com and support your favourites.

The shortlist is decided by a combination of votes cast by the surf community and the screening panel. The selected films will be shown on the big screen as part of the 10th Annual London Surf / Film Festival x Vans hosted 2-4 December at the iconic Genesis Cinema in East London.
