Pontus Alv did it again!

Mellan den 21 – 25 oktober hölls ”International Skatboard Film Festival” i Los Angeles där de flesta stora skateboardfilmerna, dokumentärerna och kortfilmer var med. Bl.a. filmer från Emerica, Lakai, Transworld, Cliché, Real och många fler. Det hölls också en prisutdelning för bästa produktion i en rad olika kategorier. Det är väldigt roligt att kunna meddela att Pontus Alv vann i samtliga kategorier han var nominerad med sin film In Search of the Miraculous! Kategorierna som filmen vann i var: Best Documentary, Best Director (Mot bl.a. Mike Manzoori och French Fred), och Best Soundtrack! Stort grattis till Pontus!

Pontus Thank You Speech!

”The main thing with this price thing is that something different actually wins (and it comes from outside of the USA.) I am surprised but also very stoked that we are working on a intl level… Hopefully we will see more of different raw things getting more and more space and recognition in todays pretty stinking skateboard industry…The culture is still here but mostly on a street level…I am stoked on the prices and all but most of all I am stoked that maybe things are slowly changing, people are waking up and starting to remember things from the past. I really think that skateboard films were great in the late 80-ties early 90-ties. They had good vibes, they gave you that magic skateboard feeling, the videos basically made you want to go skate… I don´t want to be nostalgic and say Oh those were the days. The truth is that we can still have all those great things right here right now . Skateboarding is still RAD!!!

But maybe we need to look backwards for a while to be able to move forwards again.”
