APPROACHING Lines Festival: The Cinematic Surf Sessions presented by Reef, has announced the official selection of international features for the first annual event.

Hosted between April 24 and 26 at the Lighthouse Cinema in Newquay, and April 25 at The Poly in Falmouth, The Approaching Lines Festival is a three-night extravaganza showcasing the cream of UK and international surf film-making.

"We've worked with film-makers around the world to bring to the South West a hand-picked selection of the year's most exciting surf films including a European premiere, three UK premieres and a host of award-winning movies," said festival director Chris Nelson. "The programme showcases the very best in waveriding, from cutting-edge performance in films like Se7en Signs and Groove Move to thought-provoking documentaries like The Salt Trail and mind-blowing travel epics like the Arctic-tripping The Cradle Of Storms.

"Across the board, the cinematography is stunning, the soundtracks are epic and the surfing pushes things to a whole new level. I can't wait to see the films played out in the way they were designed to be seen – on the big screen, in surround sound, among a stoked crew."

Tickets are £5, available from the Lighthouse Cinema, Newquay (01637 878650) and The Poly in Falmouth (01326 319461). A limited number of evening passes are also available through the box offices which cost £8 and include entry to all the movies on your night of choice plus a complimentary beer courtesy of Rebel Brewing Company.
