With it’s world premiere at the Paris Surf and Skate Film Festival on Saturday 26th September 2020 with a Q& A session following the film , the following evening “Rom Boys:40 Years of Rad” took home the title of best feature documentary.
In anticipation of the film launch we’re stocking up on new Rom Boys merch, from stickers to posters to new T’s and anything else we think is cool. Take a look over the next few weeks as we’ve got a constant flow of stuff coming online with some VERY awesome collab mashup designs coming up too… Visit out shop to see what’s available
So with most UK independent cinemas still shut for the foreseeable future and even hiring a screen in the UK we’re only allowed 30% capacity (yes we tried) it looks like the world premiere is now confirmed next month in Paris (assuming they don’t go into another lockdown..) Oh! But now if you go to Paris you’ve got to quarantine yourself for 14 days on your return 🤦🏻♂️.. Well I’m going anyway (if it’s going ahead), as the way things are […]
I don’t need to tell you what a mess this whole COVID-19 situation has made of the world, and no more so than in the film industry with productions halted, cinemas closed and film festivals across the world cancelled. A bit of light in the darkness is that Rom Boys has been selected for the Paris Surf & Skateboard Film Festival at the end of September. Here’s what they said about the film: “Heavy history at Rom! As long time skateboarders, we […]
They say when you finish a film you think you’ve summited Mount Everest but in reality, because you need to get it distributed, you’ve really only made it to base camp. With the democratisation and ease of making a film there is now so much content out there that getting distribution by a respected company is getting harder and harder and most independent films never make it that far. So with all that competition you have to have a great […]
As we all know we’re living in crazy times right now. The movie was finally finished back in February and had just started the film festival submission circuit. The idea being that 2020 was all about film festivals whereby the film receives a cinema screening in front of an engaged audience and then the film gets picked up by a distributor and it gets aired on TV / Independent cinemas and eventually streaming platforms. Then along came the Coronavirus. We […]
We held a special 20 minute cut of Rom Boys at the old school BMX MK19 event last month. This was a great event to get feedback from the BMX crowd and when Bob Haro tells you “You smashed it!” you know you’re on the right course…
Some behind the scenes shots of the Lance Mountain interview in Venice, Los Angeles in May 2019.
We’re super stoked to be announcing that we will be showing a VERY special 20 minute preview of Rom Boys at the Rad BMX MK19 event at Milton Keynes this August. For lots of the attendees this is the first time that you will have seen a lot of this footage, we’re tweaking the film from the museum version shown earlier this year in Romford to make it even cooler for the MK19 attendees !!! With both Bob Haro AND […]
After three years of planning it finally happened. On May 13th 2019 the planets aligned and we sat down for 2 hours with pro skate legend Lance Mountain to discuss Rom, London and all things skateboarding. Can’t wait for everyone to see what Lance had to say. His knowledge of course is second to none but also he’s just a really decent guy. A HUGE thanks to LA based DP Gene Sung who really helped make the shoot a great […]
