Goblin Skate Magazine to premiere new film ‘OPEN ALL HOURS’

Words: Dylan Murphy

The Dublin-based skate culture magazine host the exclusive first screening of their new film in the IFI this month, followed by a Q&A with Rohum Dilley and Philip Halton.

The rise of online shopping has put skate stores under increasing pressure. It’s a two-fold problem. Not only is their very existence under threat, but it has a knock on effect for wider skate culture. For many skaters, their identity is tied up in their loyalty to particular stores and for many they meet their closest friends in their local store. Without them, the very fabric of local skate culture risks disintegration.

With that in mind, Goblin Skate Magazine has created ‘OPEN ALL HOURS, a film that features Irish skate shop Highrollers and UK shops Focus, Cardiff Skateboard Club, Lost Art Skate Shop and Flatspot. Director Rohum Dilley (Rolling) captures the people behind the stores and the communities that make them in his pursuit of showcasing the importance of the physical stores.

The first exclusive screening of the film takes place in the IFI on Saturday 26 February at 18.30, with a short Q&A with Rohum Dilley and Philip Halton from the magazine after.

It comes after visual artist Curb Junki teamed up with Goblin Magazine to film their previous Issue launch party. He interviewed attendees and the footage formed the basis of the film, ‘What does skateboarding mean to you?’.

OPEN ALL HOURS’ premieres at the IFI on Saturday 26 February at 18.30. Click here for tickets.
