We’re slowly approaching the new edition of Vladimir Film Festival and with that in mind we decided to do a small recap of the 2015 VFF. We contacted Henry Kingsford, a London-based photographer and Grey Skateboard Magazine founder, last years exhibitor and guest, but mostly our friend who is visiting us again this year. In a brief interview we discuss his work at Grey, his photography and of course, Vladimir.
With this occasion we are taking the opportunity to thank Henry one more time for all the help last year on the exhibition “5 years in print” and all the promotion that he provided for the festival. Thanks man! Looking forward to seeing you again at the VFF2016.
Read the interview here.
We have finally posted the follow up of the events that took place on the 5th edition of the Vladimir skate film festival. Everything you want to know about VFF 2015 check out here!
Thanks & thanks to all of our friends that helped and supported us all the way through. Special thanks goes to: Henry (& his girlfriend) and Grey magazine for helping us with the exhibition of Grey – five years in print, Richard, Yoan and Will for helping out with the setting up of the photo exhibition and to our long time friend Aymeric for all of his help through out the years. Also we would like to thank Philippe for joining us in person to announce his film, Live skateboard media, Minuit, Grey and Free skate mag for all the media coverage, Konoba Stara Fažana, Kino Valli and galerija Cvajner for the venues and also thanks to all of our sponsors without whom the festival could not have been realised.
The man behind the Minuit audiovisual, Yoan Taillandier, cinematographer and photographer, will exhibit his works at the international photo exhibition in Kino Valli, Pula, on Saturday 19. 09. He is definitely another one of our favourite artists and finally we have the opportunity to welcome him here to Istria!
Be sure to be there at 19:00 and meet all the artists, before the program culminates with video projections and the Cardinal after party!
Tadej Vaukman’s seven-year journey, enclosed in a photo book, is the latest novelty coming from the RostFrei Publishing, creators of the famous trans-Balkan street magazine called Kontejner. Printed and handcrafted in their own backyard, “Dick Skinners” book is a photo documentation of everyday life, skateboarding and freedom, moments are captured in a rough way, straight to the point, without any embellishment.
Be sure not to miss the presentation of “Dick skinners” book, by Tadej Vaukman himself!
More about Tadej on his blog.
In the addition to the works by Henry Kingsford, who is going to be our guest here in Fažana, the exhibition will also show Grey skate magazine: 5 years in print. Articles, interviews and photos from the magazine, printed editions to flip through… Just one more reason to visit Vladimir film festival next weekend!
