Stroud District youngsters invited to tell their skating story on film

Live in Dursley, interested in skating or making films? Dursley library is hosting a skate film competition this summer in association with World Jungle's Scratch and Skate event at Jubilee Field in Cam on Sunday 6 August .

Anyone aged 5-25 can submit a short skate film (60 seconds max). We invite young people to film whatever skating exploits or adventures that inspire them to get their cameras out! Judges will include pro's from Rush Skate park and Ted James from TJD a bespoke BMX bike maker, and artist film makers. Entries will be judged at the end of August. We are looking for exciting skating but also great filming, we’d like young people to think about location, build up, excitement, and tell their skating story. Filmakers do not have to be skaters to enter.  There will be exciting skate and film prizes including goodies from Rush skate park. 

Submit films via twitter or instagram to @hushhushaol #dursleyskatefilm #artoflibraries or Entries to include name, age and any other info you think the judges would like to know!  All entries will screen on the large monitors in Dursley library from 29.Aug - 8 Sept. Submit entries from 24 July, competition closes 30 Aug, winners will be announced 2 September.

Art of Libraries is an exciting test project led by Create Gloucestershire in partnership with Gloucestershire Libraries and Information. With support from Esmee Fairbairn Foundation, Arts Council England, Ernest Cook Trust, the Summerfield Trust and other local community funds over three years, the goal is to develop libraries as hubs for introducing arts and culture to children and young people especially those who do not currently engage with the sector.
