~SKATE FILM FEST .. CROATIA
VLADIMIR SKATE FILM FESTIVAL, FAZANA, CROATIA .. SEPT 13 -14, 2013
SOME INTERNATIONAL UNDERGROUND NEWS, JUST IN FROM: SERGEJ VUTUC ..
I post this, not just because the graphics are superlative, and the content is a-m-a-z-i-n-g, but because it is interesting to look beyond our little island bursting with cutting edge ‘creatives’ .. to see how American culture, the best of it – the drive and strive for personal freedom and freedom of e-x-p-r-e-s-s-i-on .. is like a seed that blows around the whole world and often sets off a spark on a foreign shore, that is very different in it’s impact & endurance – than it’s ‘current’ cultural ‘footprint’ – here at home.
and also because:
NYC is very ego-centric. center of the art world supposedly, and all that. sometimes .. we forget there is .. a whole wide world – out there !!
doin’ a whole bunch of great & really .. awesome stuff.

ps: skate translates as .. skateboard – which in turn translates as: ‘wooden toy’. (!!)
SERGEJ VUTUC WRITES:
“for a few years my old friend from Zagreb, ZUBAK, wrote to me about idea to make skatefilm festival in Fanzana, Istrien, CROATIA … few weeks later he send me some photos of parking place/playground where they did it .. raw and full of passion to do something and share with this wooden toy made many things in Fazana different than normal life looks … today start 3rd festival with list of one of the greatest films at the moment in skateboarding and exhibition with list of friends from Balkan but also overseas.”
