LA Skate Film Festival 2010: Last Call For Submissions
Since the announcement of its debut in the city of Los Angeles back in April, The L.A. Skate Film Festival has been going through a great deal of developments that foresee a bright future for the organization.
To make it the best and most legit event of its kind in the history of skateboarding, the LA Skate Film Festival’s executive directors have created the Academy of Skateboard Filmmakers (ASF), becoming the industry’s first and only organization to represent the skateboard filmmaking community.
So far, ASF has proudly gathered the following members: Stacy Peralta, CR Stecyk III, J. Grant Brittain, Greg Hunt, Ed Templeton, Ricky Bedenbaugh, Bryce Kanights, Jamie Thomas, Mike Manzoori, Fred “French Fred” Mortagne and recent newest addition, Ty Evans.
ASF’s objectives are to advance and promote the art of filmmaking within the skateboarding industry. Its members will nominate the films and select the judges amongst other creative tasks.
Being that we are 2 Weeks out from the end of the submission process, The L.A. Skate Film Festival is calling all Filmmakers to submit their work before June 9, 2010.
So far, this 1st year’s event has been gathering some of the best films from all around the world and wants to dig out the latest gold nuggets out there.
