The RISE Fly Fishing Film Festival has been coming to screens across Australia and New Zealand for 10 years now. That’s a whole decade of some serious fish visuals over that time! Its longevity is testament to the persistence and passion by Gin Clear Media, namely Nick Reygaert.
I’m not sure about you, but my local cinema doesn’t exactly cater to the fly angler on a regular basis, so if a dedicated event rolls into town, directly targeting the industry – them I’m all over it like a brown trout on a grasshopper.
This year, audiences can look forward to stunning footage from Iceland, Australia, New Zealand and the USA presented in high definition on the big screen. Check out the trailer below for a tease of the feature film, Backcountry – South Island.
RISE will screen as a limited release stopping in 28 towns and cities across Australia and NZ, including Perth, Darwin, Hobart, Launceston, Burnie, Melbourne, Ballarat, Canberra, Albury, Bowral, Sydney, Central Coast, Brisbane, Gore, Dunedin, Christchurch, Nelson, Wellington, Hawkes Bay, Palmerston North, Rotorua, Nelson, Hamilton and Auckland.
Tickets available online HERE or at the door, unless sold out.
