VFF 2014 update: Blackcrossbowl documentary!

“It almost feels like the Blackcrossbowl developed a life of it’s own in the six years of it’s existence. It became an almost mythical place because of the crazy party nights during the European Skateboard Championships and the rumour of the 1000€ prize for a successful drop in from the cross. Blackcrossbowl shows the full story from birth to death of one of Europe’s first DIY bowls and offers a glimpse into the life of the skateboarders that created it with the help of the European DIY godfather, Pontus Alv.”

Coping Mechanism by Phil Evans, VFF2014!

Coping Mechanism new documentary film by Phil Evans about Malmö, skateboarding and concrete.

Already got the first video for the VFF 2014! The Croatian premiere will be held at  MMC kino, Studenstki Centar, Zagreb, on 8th February, at 20:00h!

“The people at the heart of the scene here have put in the hard work and made the right decisions to foster a unique relationship with the city council who understand the true social benefits that skateboarding has to offer. Together they have pioneered a skate paradise in an unlikely location. This is something I have tried my best to represent, analyse and celebrate in Coping Mechanism.”
