The International Skateboard Film Festival is dedicated to showcasing creativity within the skateboard community on a world wide platform. Its objective is to honour and recognize the increasing amount of talent within the industry (skaters and filmmakers alike) as well as make known that skateboarding is no longer just a 'pastime'...it is an art form and fundamentally a way of life.

This year, they have some pretty kick ass things going down at the event, including a pre-nationwide release screening of Waiting for Lightning/Q&A with director Jacob Rosenburg AND an onstage reunion of the original Plan B team at the awards ceremony!!!
The festival is gaining momentum each year and has now become a forerunner in the premiere world as THE place to recognize the achievements and progression of skate culture across the globe. It was one helluva a good time last year so we did a little review in issue 9.5, and we basically concluded that this event has become "...the Oscars of the skate world".
We'll have copies of our upcoming issue of Color, 10.4 "The Photo Issue" available at the Festival, hope to see you there!
