Fishing film festival again on the rise

This winter Rise Fly Fishing Film Festival 2010, the world’s largest fishing film festival, hits theatres on the Australian leg of its worldwide tour.

Throughout July and August, cinema audiences will be treated to a selection of fly fishing films presented in crystal-clear high definition on the big screen. Exotic destinations, epic adventure, big fish and award-winning cinematography explode from the screen as this live event spectacular wheels its way across the country.

Crisscrossing the globe, Rise Fly Fishing Film Festival 2010 showcases a variety of stunning movies from Broome, New Zealand, Mexico, California and Iceland. Gin-Clear Media’s The Source – New Zealand is the feature movie of the festival. Part of a series, The Source exposes the best fly fishing destinations from around the world.

Nick Reygaert, The Source – New Zealand’s director, says, “New Zealand offers a seemingly limitless amount of variety for fly fishers yet each person enjoys and values the fishery in their own unique way. With The Source – New Zealand we set out to capture those special moments that define a fishing trip and through these get a glimpse of what the Kiwi experience means to each of the featured anglers. For some, it means casting size 18 emergers to delirious brown trout during a blanket hatch, for others it’s the triumph of catching a 10lb + fish on a dry fly, for others it’s a jet boat ride into a remote fiord!”

A video trailer of The Source – New Zealand can be viewed below.

Rise Fly Fishing Film Festival 2010 also creates cinematic history as the only high-definition fishing film tour in the world. Now in its 5th year, the festival will stop in more than 25 cities, including: Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Canberra, Hobart, Launceston, Perth and Darwin.
