Underskatement is an internationally touring film festival that showcases short films of all genres made exclusively by skateboarders.  Our feature-length programs combine documentaries, music videos, experimental shorts, horror, sketch comedy, political commentary, animation and more, each film less than 7 minutes in length. 

Underskatement originally premiered in San Francisco in 2001.   Since then, 4 original programs have been shown throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, and Australia, exposing audiences of all ages and walks of life to the creativity of skateboarder filmmakers.  

Underskatement will release it’s 5th installment of new and cutting edge films in November 2016.  By teaming up with companies who believe in the dynamic creativity and originality of Underskatement’s contributing filmmakers, we aim to show these films to new audiences in even more cities around the world.
