Summit of the Non-Aligned / 5W's!

Skateboarding has definitely been seeing the flourishing of independent happenings, as though a form of natural resistance to mass culture by its most sincerely devoted enthusiasts. As the official 2019 program for the ninth (!) edition of the Croatian Vladimir Film Festival just dropped, in Belgrade, the Summit of the Non-Aligned is just about to start (from today on, till September 15th), and as expected from passionate people whose communication is more akin to sponataneous expression than malign marketing, it probably wouldn't have caught the attention of a wider scale audience if it hadn't been for word of mouth from acquainted artists who linked us up (i.e. Glen Fox and Nez Pez). Five minutes later and a phone call was in order...
 
Check out the Summit's website and Instagram feed, and enjoy the interview below, with activist David Soda.

"Vladimir" / premiere

In seven years of existence, Nikola Racan's Vladimir Film Festival has slowly but surely grown to become a remarkable institution as part of the European - not to say worldwide - skate scene, gathering hundreds of skateboarders from the whole world over in the small croatian village of Fažana every year. On location every year since (nearly) the beginning, Aymeric Nocus picked 2017 as the year to finally bring his video camera with him, as an effort to capture and share as much of that effervescence as possible, with precious VX-1000 assistance from George Toland and Rémi Luciani who documented the energy of the skate sessions. The final product is now premiereing on LIVE Skateboard Media, after physical premieres at the Mimpi Film Festival in Rio De Janeiro and the Roundabout Fest in Berlin... Worldwide connexions!

Meeting... Medium Skate Mag!

Just as certain popular insecurities regarding the future of print media happen to be the hottest topic, some people such as Will Jivcoff (former Kingshit managing editor) and Love Skateboards' Joel Watamaniuk instead choose to leap head first into enterprises such Medium Skate Mag, the second issue of which they're launching just now, alongside this accompanying edit of their recent parisian adventures.

Ah, Karolina!

Berliner or Varsovian, we might never know who was that Karolina… Unless you get a chance to ask the luck fews from that rip. Another visual collaboration between Alexis Jamet and Romain Batard.

Morita's card

In the end, what will remain of your love for skateboarding will be the people met along the way… Thanks to Mister Morita for reminding me the obvious!
