RISE Fly Fishing Film Festival 2018

THIS spring, the RISE Fly Fishing Film Festival is back to salute the impending summer. The world’s most extensive fishing film festival, hits theatres on the Australian leg of its 2018 worldwide tour, celebrating its 13th year of bringing fly fishing films to the big screen with global adventures and big fish galore.

Be inspired as the RISE Fly Fishing Film Festival hits theatres across Australia, serving as a stage for the best Australian and Kiwi filmmakers in the industry to premiere their latest offerings and allowing the fishing community to share their passion for the sport by attending film screenings countrywide (you can check out some still from the various films in the gallery above).

Aussie Fly Fisher’s Goodoo is the festival feature film. Murray cod, Australia’s largest exclusively freshwater fish, can eat a full-grown duck in one hit. They are the apex predator of our inland rivers. Join Joshua Hutchins and his crew as they chase down the ultimate prize: the elusive one metre Goodoo on fly. Experience the thrill first hand, travelling by four-wheel-drive, helicopter and foot to some of NSW’s best native fisheries with hard hits, wild Aussie landscapes, and clear water sight-fishing, this is Murray cod as you’ve never seen them before.

Gin-Clear Media’s Pure Fly NZ, a New Zealand based fly fishing TV show that has drawn wide acclaim,is another highlight of the festival. This year we will be screening a preview episode from the third series. The episode features Rene Vaz as he explores Otago and the surprising variety of winter trout fishing available to the enterprising angler, proving that in NZ the season never really ends!

Atlanticus follows a group of friends on an incredible journey from the beaches of Gabon, through Mexico, and deep into Central America, an emotional ride with lessons in persistence, failure, and ultimately discovery as they attempt something nearly impossible…to catch a Tarpon on foot.

The movie Three Runs is about the dream of many fly fishers to catch an Atlantic salmon. Fly fishing’s history grows with each passing day as new species and the techniques to catch them evolve. It is indisputable that its history lies in the pursuit of wild brown trout and Atlantic salmon in the UK. Felix Stintzing, Stephan Dombaj of “Fly Fishing Nation” and the rest of the team show in their film that there is hope to catch healthy salmon in an intact ecosystem on the Ponoi River in Russia.

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 Australia, including Brisbane, Central Coast, Sydney, Bowral, Canberra, Albury, Melbourne, Ballarat, Bendigo, Hobart, Burnie, Launceston, Adelaide, Townsville, Perth and Darwin.
