Nich Kunz at Vladimir

With no solid plans and nothing he had to do, Nich Kunz went on a trip to visit friends and skateboard while traveling in Europe. The exhibition of 12 photographs, accompanied by a book, recaps the solo 3 month trip leading up to the Vladimir Film Festival in 2016.

This solo exhibition by the San Francisco based photographer is going to be shown at the Valli cinema in Pula starting from 19:00 on Saturday, 23rd of September 2017.

Danger Dave

Danger Dave

Last year VFF’s collaboration with Kino Valli was a screening of Phil Evans’ documentary Coping Mechanism. This year the collaboration continues with an unusual documentary, Danger Dave is a film about a professional skateboarder from France, who is on his last legs, yet still has no desire to end his career.

Over a five year period, the filmmaker Philippe Petit explores the demise of a man who is unable to maintain a professional career as his life descends into a downward spiral of parties and debauchery.

On the occasion of his personal attending to the festival, we made a small interview with the author. Check it here!

Rios crew

This guys shred! We like their style a lot. Rios crew, a bunch of Hungarians from Budapest are coming in Fažana to show their latest video. They didn’t have a name for it yet so we named it Yönnek! It literally translates to: They are coming!

Check out the interview with Rios crew at Quartersnacks. Find some more posts about them on Live skateboard media or on their tumblr page.

We were in Split, Croatia, and Kakas tried to skate a rail which was at the entrance of a pub. The owner was so hyped that he told the costumers to sit away from us so he could have the run up for the rail. We got free beers, too.
