Storm Surfers 3D, produced by Marcus Gillezeau [former Metro Screen President] and Ellenor Cox and directed by Chris Nelius and Justin McMillan, will have its international premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September. The film will screen in the Real to Reel program, which features documentaries on hot topics or which provide intimate access into dramatic lives. Storm Surfers 3D will join two other Australian feature films already announced by Toronto, Lore and The Sapphires. Lore was produced by former Metro Screen deputy chair Liz Watts and the Sapphires was directed by Wayne Blair who made his first 2 short films at Metro Screen.
Screen Australia originally supported the producers Ellenor Cox and Marcus Gillezeau through investment in the TV series before providing development and production finance for the 3D feature film and multimedia package. Storm Surfers 3D will premiere nationally on 14th August before road showing around the country in a ‘special event tour’ with advance ticket sales available through: http://www.stormsurfers.com.au
