Open call! Short skate film contest

On July 22nd, we are hosting an evening of skate & film together with Roffa Mon Amour, Skateland, Lantarenvenster and Zomer op Zuid.

Skateland is turning into an open-air cinema that welcomes the skate community in Rotterdam to watch an iconic skate film and offer an opportunity for filmmakers to show their work on the big screen.

For the first time at Roffa Mon Amour, you can choose the film you will watch! You just need to check out the selection below and vote here for the film you want to watch on the big screen. You can vote until June 30th. RMA will announce the winning film a few days after. Entrance for the entire evening is only €1; a reservation is required. 

Get your tickets here.

Open call: Short skate film 

Have you been practising tricks and film styles? This is your chance to show off! We want to support (starting) filmmakers by creating an opportunity to show their work. The film must be centred around skating or skate culture. It must be creative, not a mere representation of people skating. 

Send in your 15(+) minute film and get to present it on the big screen before the main screening. The winner will also go home with an SB X Dufarge X Koen Taselaar skate deck.

Interested? Submit your film before June 30th.

How to admit your film.
