Vladimir film festival documentary filmed and edited by our dear friend Aymeric Nocus. There is nothing more to add that has not been said in the film. Enjoy!
Vladimir is now a crucially federating event, abolishing geographical and political borders for a moment just long enough for as many skateboarding enthusiasts as possible to share energies by the means of underground skate video premieres, documentary screenings or various types of performance shows and exhibitions in – more often than not – odd locations in a region best described as lost in, if not completely out of, time.
Free skate mag did a great article on VFF 2017 with words by Aymeric Nocus accompanied with photos by Tomaž Šantl. Here it is!
If you aren’t familiar with the yearly Vladimir Film Festival already, sorry to say you’ve been sleepin’ and slippin’.
Great shots taken by Stefan Schwinghammer at the Vladimir 2017 on Solo skate mag.
A good skate session, chilling at the beach, good food, Ping Pong, Rakija (other better not) and screenings and photo exhibitions in the evening. What more do you want?
Connor Kammerer’s concept came to life on day zero of Vladimir 2017. Skating famous spots here in Fažana was a thrill for everybody who got the chance to witness this simple yet complex idea. Congratulations to the winners.
Black hubba / best trick – Dino Coce
Keenan Milton prize – Nich Kunz
Best overall – Gosha Konyshev

Jim Craven, a young author from Manchester, is here with us again after last year’s preview of what we today know as the Land video. With great pleasure we are watching his next installment named Island at National park Brijuni on Sunday 24th of September.
‘Island’ is an expansion on a project we embarked on last year, ‘Land’. This summer we have travelled the length of the UK, camping in the wild and skating unique and rural spots along the way. It stars Tom Day and Zach Riley, alongside friends we met along the way.
