Australia will be premiering the opening of a new cinematic experience, ‘TILT Action Sports Film Festival’, from November 11-15 this year. Sports fans can expect to see the world’s biggest surf, skate and snow icons, including; Mick Fanning, Tony Hawk, Danny Way, iconic film director, Taylor Steele and many more sporting heroes featuring in the documentary action films.
Presented by Sony Action Cam and Garage Entertainment, with support from Event Cinemas in the nation’s capitals and a host of regional independent theatre’s; TILT aims to create an extreme -double feature- sports movie experience for only $15 (concession) and $20 (adults) per night.
Michael Lawrence, Director of Garage Entertainment stated, “TILT Festival is a festival of stories, for movie-goers who love stories. Rather then being about action sports, these films are some of the most compelling stories behind its stars, set against a backdrop of adventure that will visually inspire. TILT brings these films to the big screen – where they belong”.
