Fly Fishing Film Festival 2016
RISE Fly Fishing Film Festival 2016
Fly fishing’s most celebrated annual event, the RISE Fly Fishing Film Festival, continues its global tour during August and September in New Zealand. The film tour serves as a stage for the best Kiwi and Australian filmmakers in the industry to premiere their latest offerings, allowing the fishing community to share their passion for the sport by attending film screenings across the country.
In its 11th year, RISE is celebrating over a decade of bringing the best fishing entertainment to cinemas around the world. New Zealand audiences can look forward to stunning footage from New Zealand, Argentina, Australia, Bolivia and Alaska presented in high definition on the big screen.
Gin-Clear Media's Freaks of Nature is one of the features of the festival. It is a film about the giant rainbow trout of Patagonia’s fabled Jurassic Lake. This desolate and wind-swept lake is undoubtedly home to the largest trout on the planet, a place where ten pound fish are common and twenty pound plus trout are caught every week.
The festival will also be premiering Parallel Lines the new film from emerging Aussie filmmaker Benny Godfrey. Filmed in numerous locations across Australia and featuring Brett Wilson and Shannon Kitchener, two mates whose lives have been shaped by their passion for fly fishing.
For many, RISE Fly Fishing Film Festival has become so much more than just going to the cinema. These annual fish-fests have become a true celebration of fly fishing, it's an excuse to get together with friends and reminisce about the past season as well as look forward to the season to come.
Presented by Gin-Clear Media, RISE will screen across New Zealand, including Auckland, Hamilton, Taupo, Tauranga, Palmerston North, Hawkes Bay, Wellington, Nelson, Christchurch, Dunedin, Gore and Queenstown.
