In an effort to support the Wilmington, NC skateboarding community, Friends of Wilmington Skateparks will be hosting the second annual Fall Skate Film Festival at Satellite Bar & Lounge! We invite skaters and filmers from all over to submit their footage for a chance to have it premiered at the festival!

Films are typically anywhere from 5 minutes to one hour in length! For serious films, or if you want anyone to know what you're saying, we HIGHLY recommend subtitles!

Filming starts NOW! Grab your friends and start making clips this summer! No length requirement! Feel free to submit any skate related footage! Could be a drama, the next “Fully Flared”, or just some fun short clips!

Content Guidelines:
We encourage skaters and filmers to submit skateboarding footage that is suitable for a family audience. Avoid including slams or content that may be too intense or inappropriate for a family movie night.
Ensure that your footage aligns with the values of respect, positivity, and fun.

Film Submission:
Submissions must be skateboarding-related footage.
There is no specific length requirement. You can submit short clips, a complete skate film, or anything in between.
Feel free to submit various styles of content, including dramas, creative narratives, or fun and energetic clips.

Submission Process:
All submissions must be received by the specified deadline.
To submit your footage, please use the designated submission platform or method specified on the Fall Skate Film Festival website.

Ownership and Rights:
By submitting your footage, you affirm that you own the necessary rights to the content or have obtained the appropriate permissions.
You retain ownership of your footage but grant Friends of Wilmington Skateparks and the Fall Skate Film Festival the right to showcase and promote your work during the festival. A copy of your film may be added to a DVD and sold for distribution to help support our annual event. All proceeds will go to the Friends of Wilmington Skateparks nonprofit organization.

Technical Requirements:
Footage should be submitted in a high-quality format suitable for public screening.
