The Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), which concluded yesterday, has announced that the Australian adventure documentary Storm Surfers 3D, finished second in the balloting for the documentary audience award.
The film, which is directed by Christopher Nelius and Justin McMillan and stars popular surfing legends Tom Carroll and Ross Clarke-Jones, was bested only by director Bartholomew Cubbins’ Artifact, which tells of singer/actor Jared Leto and his troubles between his band Thirty Seconds to Mars, and their label.
Storm Surfers 3D is distributed in Australia by Madman Entertainment and is currently barnstorming around the country playing to packed houses. See here for an updated schedule.
The film’s next international screening is at Spain’s San Sebastian Film Festival as part of a double bill with the world premiere of the snowboarding epic The Art of Flight 3D. The event is billed as Big Friday, and will be held at the festival’s Antonio Elorza Velodrome on September 28.
