Showtimes and location

Film description

Favorite Spot is a documentary series exploring the relationships between skateboarders and space.

From urban plazas, to national monuments, to seemingly incongruous pieces of street furniture, these locations colloquially known as “spots” can hold profound and often personal significance to the skateboarders who interact with them. For professionals, such locations can become integral to their careers as moments captured on video allow for a near-biographic portrait of the most influential figures within the culture.

Produced by Leeds-based journalist Farran Golding for New York publication, Quartersnacks, this screening brings together all five Favorite Spot instalments, depicting the nuanced and often humorous relationship skateboarders have with the wider world.

Original videography by: Will Rosenstock, Greg Hunt, Cody Green, Benny Maglinao, Colin Kennedy, William Strobeck, Paul Young, Peter Sidlauskas, Tyler Cichy, Tyler Smolinski, Johnny Wilson, Waylon Bone, Logan Lara, Daniel Wheatley

Doors for this screening open at 7pm and the film will begin promptly at 8pm, following a short introduction from filmmaker Farran Golding.

In the interests of safety and social distancing, we are limiting capacity of this screening to 75%. This venue is only accessible via two flight of stairs and so unfortunately not wheelchair accessible.
