Submit To Los Angeles Skate Film Festival 2010
The first ever L.A. Skate Film Festival is now calling for submissions. Top films will go before a panel of judges and could possibly be publicly screened in Los Angeles.
The intention of the first annual L.A. Skate Film Festival was to highlight the filmmakers, directors and artists within Skateboarding and, at the same time, to focus on the lifestyle that nurtured the idea of “brand movies” and “lifestyle documentaries.”
For the first time Los Angeles, the birthplace of Skateboarding, is to host this International skate film festival dedicated to the best films and the filmmakers, directors and artists behind them.
The eight categories of the L.A. Skate Film Festival will include: U.S. Film, International Film, Independent Film, Documentary, Skate Shop Video, Emerging Filmmaker, Commercial and Classic.
Awards will also be given out in the "behind the scenes" categories of Best Photography, Best Editing, Best Soundtrack, Best Intro and Best Skit Submissions can be sent to http://www.withoutabox.com.
Selected submissions will be sent to a panel of judges including skateboarding legend C.R. Stecyk, SkateDaily.net co-founder Bryce Kanights, and French filmmaker Fred Mortagne.
Top nominated films will be publicly screened in Los Angeles on August 31st and September 1st, 2010 at the Downtown Independent Theater followed by an awards ceremony on September 2nd, 2010. Fuel TV, the “Official TV/Network Partner”, will broadcast highlights of the Festival on the “Daily Habit” and the “Weekly Update.”
