Overall Rating
  • HI - This was a really great film festival. All the related sports - skateboarding, surfing, skiing, snowboarding had crowd-pleasing
    films, and I'm happy to say we were the "winner" in the skateboard section. The admins were incredibly responsive and super friendly. Although we could not make it to Venice, Italy... from Venice, California, for the screenings of the films, we were very glad to be participants through our film Made In Venice. Good luck in future to 4S!!
