Press release:
ActionFest Film Festival is pleased to announce the sixth film of its monthly screening series.  STORMS SURFERS 3D, winner of most outstanding achievement in a 3D documentary in 2012 at the International 3D Society annual awards will screen one night only at The Carolina Asheville on Thursday, September 19 at 7:30 p.m.
A nearly 30-year friendship between legendary surfers Tom Carroll and Ross Clarke-Jones has come full circle with the release of the new film, STORM SURFERS 3D.
Co-directed by Justin McMillan and Chris Nelius, the movie is the first surf flick filmed almost entirely in three-dimensional technology. Viewers get to experience what it’s like to cascade down a 20-foot wave in the open ocean off Western Australia, or ride inside massive tubes in Tasmania. Almost all of the footage was shot during the 2011 Southern Hemisphere winter, from May to August.
“We actually take the audience on the ride with us while we’re holding a 3-D camera,” said Clarke-Jones. “You’re actually like a seagull or something flying behind us, (and) it’s quite an incredible vision.”
All proceeds from this screening will be donated to HOMEWARD BOUND, celebrating its 25th anniversary of providing pathways to housing for the homeless in Asheville. The suggested donation for admission is $10. Those in attendance will receive complimentary pints of beer donated by our friends at French Broad, PLUS complimentary soft drinks AND popcorn donated by Carolina Cinemas. This is truly the best entertainment value in Asheville.
The ActionFest Film Series is a monthly film series occurring on the 3 rd Thursday of each month at The Carolina Asheville — home of the ActionFest Film Festival — offering action movie fanatics an early look at action films from all over the world, including world premieres and select major studio previews.  STORM SURFERS 3D is the sixth film featured in this new series.
We hope all Persons of Action will join us for this exciting action event at The Carolina Asheville. Tickets are available now at the Carolina Cinemas box office, 1640 Hendersonville Road, Asheville, NC, or online at THE STORM SURFERS 3D:

“The twin Australian ideals of outdoor adventure and ecstatic camaraderie achieve harmonic convergence in the visceral, extreme-sport thrill-ride Storm Surfers 3D.”  Variety
