The third annual Approaching Lines International Festival of Surf presented by REEF comes to Cornwall. Bringing the very best international and homegrown surf films to the big screen, from European Premieres to multi award-winning features, the Approaching Lines International x Reef celebrates filmmaking on a global scale.

DIRTY OLD WEDGE: Since its creation, people have flocked to stand and stare in awe as a tight crew of surfers and bodysurfers take on the monstrous waves where injuries are common and where even deaths have occurred.

“We’ve worked with the very best filmmaking talent across the globe to curate a line up of the year’s most inspiring and exciting movies, bringing two night of stunning cinematography, cutting edge performance and inspiring documentaries to the Southwest,” says Festival Director Chris Nelson.

“Hosted at the state of the art Lighthouse Cinema, Newquay, this year’s programme takes you on a waveriding journey that will stoke the fires for the season ahead. For many of the films this will be the only chance to see them on the big screen in the southwest, watched as they were intended to be seen, surrounded by an enthusiastic and amped crew.”


FAROES: Bleak, beautiful and jaw-droopingly, critically acclaimed filmmakers present a spectacular travelogue that goes in search of the secrets of the Faroe Islands and never before surfed waves.

Accompanied by the inaugural Approaching Lines charity surf quiz night hosted at Gilmore’s on 12th May plus the UK’s most exciting alt wave riding contest, The Slyder Cup hosted at the Lusty Glaze shred wedge, 15th May, The Approaching Lines International presented by REEF is a celebration of the cream of contemporary surf culture.
