ChopShop Partners with the Newport Beach Film Festival
for 2012 Action Sports Film Series
Newport Beach Film Festival Action Sports Film Series:
April 26-May 3, 2012
ChopShop is on board again this year as the co-producer of the 2012 Newport Beach Film Festival Action Sports Film Series. This is the fourth consecutive year that ChopShop has partnered with the Newport Beach Film Festival leading the effort to establish and brand the Series as the destination for action sports filmmakers and their films.
Action sports films have been a part of the Newport Beach Film Festival since 2004 and in 2009 ChopShop stepped up to build the Series and cast a broader net to filmmakers in this genre. Each year Action Sports Film Series’ audiences have grown along with the number of submissions - films, shorts and documentaries - featuring surfing, skateboarding, snowboarding, wakeboarding, motocross and other action sports.
The Action Sports Film Series gives filmmakers a platform to showcase their work and offers the resources for nurturing their talents, exposure to audiences and potential distribution channels. An important element to the Series is the location right in the epicenter of the action sports industry and the lifestyle that the brands proliferated.
The weeklong Newport Beach Film Festival and the Action Sports Film Series will kick-off on April 26 and run through May 3. Submissions are being reviewed right now and final decisions will be made by mid-February.
