For the three nights of the 2016 Approaching Lines International Festival of Surf x Reef, Newquay shone brightly as a beacon of stoke gathering together surf communities from across the southwest for a celebration of the cream of international surf culture, bringing to Newquay two nights of the very best surf films from across the globe which included a World Premiere, a European Premiere and a host of award winning features. “ We were delighted to be able to host such an incredible line up of talent here in the Southwest and pack the cinema to the rafters with stoke,” says Approaching Lines co-founder Chris Nelson. “It’s also great to be able to showcase the work of so many talented homegrown filmmakers, including the likes of Jimmy Pinfield, Ben Skinner, Anthony Butler, Chris Case and the multi award winning 2 Eyes Films on the big screen.”
