With only a week to go, the full line up has now been announced for The Approaching Lines International Festival of Surfing presented by Reef and Newquay is set to host three nights of some of the hottest surf films in the world right now. As well as the film festival at the Lighthouse Cinema there will also be filmmakers question and answer sessions, an after party and Fistral Beach will also host a single fin surf competition.
Many of the films will be World or UK premiers and what can be better than watching a surf film on the big screen with a cinema packed with like minded surf and ocean enthusiasts? Afterwards you can look forward to shaking your ‘thang’ to the mix tunes of Upstairs Downstairs Vinyl Collective.
We can’t cover the full extensive film line up here, but the list includes the world premier of Chasing Ombak, a movie following the adventures of Alan Stokes on a far away Indonesian Isle and directed by Tim Davies. The film in particular I would like to see is Stephanie In The Water, a fly on the wall documentary about World Champion Stephanie Gilmore and her life both on and off the world tour. One film that is a UK premier and will certainly be in demand will be Cluster and we would advise getting tickets early. Cluster is directed by Kai Neville, who will be on site to present the movie, that features the likes of Dane Reynolds and Chippa Wilson pushing the limits with progressive and exciting surfing captured with stunning cinematography.
