Waltzing in Croatia

A big thanks goes to Spencer Legebokoff for writing this article about Vladimir 2019 that was published at the King skateboard magazine

The normally culturally homogenous town was quickly taken over by the sounds of powerslides and Ollies, and I quickly realized why Fažana was the perfect place for skaters to gather: the sea was warm, coffee breaks were long, and nobody ever felt the need to lock their doors.

Peter Fettich photo exhibition

On Thursday 27th we are hosting a great photo exhibition at Kasarna in Fažana. Peter Fettich from Ljubljana, Slovenia, has captured some of the amazing moments at Vertbrant mini ramp contest and Vladimir film festival, intermittently, since 2013.

I have been heavily immersed in skate/snowboard culture since the mid 90s. As most information during the 90s was through magazines and movies, I developed an interest in photography towards the end of the millennium. For the past 7 years my main focus in photography has been traditional analog black and white darkroom imagery.

Vladimir documentary

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.

Taufek Asmarak

Taufek Asmarak, the founder of independent magazine Waxfeather, is bringing us Quit KL, a skate video from Kuala Lumpur by Tep York. At Vladimir Film Festival, Taufek is showing a photo exhibition documenting underground skate scene from Malaysia (Singapore) and Indonesia, made during the filming of the Quit KL video.

The exhibition and the screening are set for Friday, 22nd September at Caffe bar Stara Fažana from 19:00.

Island by Jim Craven

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.

Kompa by Mihael Šandro

Mihael Šandro, a nineteen year old from Rijeka, currently living in Copenhagen, has been creating short video clips for the past few years, documenting croatian skate scene, mostly focusing on Rijeka’s scene in which he oft en participates.

In collaboration with Simple skateboards he created his first featured video Kompa (slang for buddy). Video is gathering all of the prominent skaters from the Croatian skateboarding scene, also featuring few a Slovenian skaters. Video was filmed for the past two years on locations in Croatia, Slovenia and Italy.

You can catch it on Friday, September 22nd at Caffe bar Stara Fažana.

Look left

Traffic skateboards is the most essential skateboarder-ran company with a core following and little, yet impactful, publicity for those in the know. It is a great pleasure to announce that the newest Trafic video Look Left is going to be part of this year’s Vladimir program. It features Kevin Coakley, Hiroki Muraoka, Brendan Carroll, Joe Yates, Rich Adler, Jimmy Mastrocola, Mark Wetzel, Chris Teta, Luke Malaney and George Hanuschak.

European premiere of the film will be held Friday 23rd at caffe bar Stara Fažana so be sure not to miss it!

Palomino pop-up shop

We are happy to announce that this year Vladimir Film Festival will once again feature Palomino Pop-up shop. Nick is visiting us from London, bringing the shop with a bunch of amazing skate brands, books, DVDs, and magazines, but more than anything, we look forward to his contagious smile.

Who hasn’t already should check Palomino store online because he is taking over Stara Fažana square on Friday, September 22nd from 7-11PM where you will be able to choose from the variety of brands at friendly prices.

O3EPO project


Photo by Alexey Lapin


Skaters from famous Russian skate brand Absurd Skateboards and skaters from Carhartt WIP got together on this unusual project, a trip from Moscow to Baikal lake in Siberia. They went together through five time zones, crossing more than 6000 km, which took them over three weeks.

The project is called O3EPO, which means lake in Russian, (or “jezero” in Croatian) and after the premieres at Bright in Berlin and Faces and Laces in Moscow, it comes to VFF2017 in Fažana, accompanied with a limited number of free zines, featuring the photographs from Alexey Lapin and Felipe Bartolomé. Come and grab yours!

The video will be shown on Friday, September 22nd in the Fažana old square.

Boat ride to Brijuni screening

On the last day of the festival, Sunday 24th of September, the screenings of Abkhazia and Island is going to take place  at the Brijuni National Park, an archipelago in Fažana Bay.

Ticket price is 25 Croatian kuna per person, departure is from the main dock in Fažana at 6PM and screening starts at 8PM. Make sure to pre-book your ferry ride ticket by filling out the form and we will get back to you with your reservation. Tickets are limited.

Canasta by Francisco Saco

Canasta is a celebration of a scene that has been brewing for quite a while now, culminating in a mixed bag of expectations and maneuvers, of tackling an urban tropical landscape in all its splendor and ruggedness. It is as a complete overview of a crescent scene, and as such, will be the final work in a triptych of wrecks.

It features a cast of locals: Miguel Castro, Kervin Miranda, Kevin Mejia, Roberto Chaves, Yiyo Obando, Trona, Kako Vega, Bryan Gutierrez along with some visitors: Remy Taveira, Nich Kunz, Manu Etchegoyen.

Canasta is my last wreck. It focuses completely on the scene in Costa Rica, from both a national and foreign perspective under close observation.
