The promise of Autumn is knocking on the door. Ushering in the season, London Surf / Film Festival has dropped a fresh dose of inspiration with the longlist for 11th Edition of The Shorties presented by Surfdome. Settle in for some 60 minutes of surf movie magic over at the LS/FF site.

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. Hit the button below to vote.

The ‘homegrown filmmaking’ category at the heart of the international film festival features two standout shorts showcasing two stand out female longboarders from the southwest – ‘First Light Stillness’ Dir. Bella Bunce featuring Beth Leighfied and ‘Amble’ Dir. Seth Hughes featuring Izzy Henshall.

Voting is open now and will run until 22nd October. Check out the longlisted entries at and cast your votes for your favourite films!

The shortlist is decided by a combination of votes cast by the esteemed surf community (you!) and the screening panel. The best films will be shown on the big screen as part of the 11th Annual London Surf / Film Festival hosted 25-26 November at the iconic Riverside Studios and 2nd December at the legendary, Genesis Cinema in East London.  And as part of LS/FF’s commitment to UK and Irish filmmaking talent, there’s a £1500 filmmaking fund awarded to the winning films.

Founded round a kitchen table, in the deep mid winter after a few good waves, London Surf / Film Festival is a celebration of the cream of international surf culture. After 10 editions of packed out premieres, icons, good times and more it has grown to become a must attend for saltwater aficionados, bringing to the UK the best surf films from around the globe – documentaries to inspire, travelogues to stir up the wanderlust and cutting edge action to blow minds, accompanied by talks, music, gallery shows, workshops and more. See you there!
