vitaminwater sponsoring Action Sports category at NFFTY 201201/19/2012
With NFFTY 2012 receiving more submissions than ever before you’re sure to be wowed when you watch Action Sports at NFFTY 2012. The support of vitaminwater shows the value of what young filmmakers truly achieve when capturing extreme sports: a thrilling experience meant to be shared on the big-screen.
I love the experience of watching a movie in the theater. For filmmakers it’s a time to hear the audience react: the laughs for comedy, the still-silence for drama, or the classic “scare” in a horror film.
No where do you get to hear more “ooo’s” and “ahhs” than the NFFTY Action Sports screening. Films in this category bring the excitement straight to the audience, showcasing immense talent in extreme sports across the globe. Soaring through the skies before landing on the white snow-oasis of a mountain, defying gravity on a vert ramp with a skateboard, bobbing & weaving wooded parks on a mountain bike- it’s a very special experience to watch Action Sports in a theater. The support of vitaminwater only means more exposure for these great filmmakers, and the athletes they see through the lens.
