“There’s a huge difference between seeing a movie on your TV or computer screen and seeing it on a big screen in a movie theater”, said Academy member and director Greg Hunt, after spending a few hours at the Downtown Independent Theater watching the top nominated films at last year’s Festival. Hunt couldn’t have put it better, because it doesn’t matter how good a movie is, it doesn’t reach its full potential until you see it on the biggest screen possible.

The films that the Academy will nominate this year deserve to reach that potential. The ISFF committee and our partners selected two screening venues for the 2011 International Skateboard Film Festival: Downtown Independent Theater for Los Angeles and Long Beach Art Theater for err.. Long Beach. By adding the Long Beach Art Theater as a venue, the Festival will be able to reach a “south of L.A.” audience that wants to see the movies on a big screen while avoiding the traffic difficulties.

Seeing any skate action on a computer screen or at best a TV screen is one thing but watching it on a full size theater screen is a whole another experience. This is precisely one of the purpose of the International Skateboard Film Festival. 

We can’t get enough of  Academy member and director Greg Hunt quote from two years ago:  “There’s a huge difference between seeing a movie on your TV or computer screen and seeing it on a big screen in a movie theater”, after spending a few hours at the Downtown Independent Theater watching the top nominated films at last year’s Festival. Hunt couldn’t have said it better.

The ISFF committee has decided to set a tradition by invading one of the coolest theater in downtown LA:  the Downtown Independent Theater.

We can’t give you the full program yet but be sure to be to circle Thursday-Friday, December 6-7, 2012  for the Public Screenings & Special Events
