Mon­ster quest a 3D chal­lenge

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - MOVIES -

US­TRALIAN vet­eran surf stars Tom Car­roll and Ross Clarke-Jones will swap their wet­suits for din­ner suits when they walk the red car­pet at the Toronto In­ter­na­tional Film Fes­ti­val for the screening of Storm Surfers 3D.

The epic ad­ven­ture doc­u­men­tary, di­rected by Chris Nelius and Justin McMil­lan, will screen in Canada in Septem­ber as part of the fes­ti­val’s Real to Reel pro­gram, which fea­tures doc­u­men­taries on hot top­ics or which pro­vide in­ti­mate ac­cess into dra­matic lives.

It will join two other Aus­tralian fea­ture films al­ready an­nounced for the Toronto fes­ti­val – Lore and The Sap­phires.

Storm Surfers shows Car­roll and Clarke-Jones on their quest to hunt down and ride the big­gest and most dan­ger­ous waves around Aus­tralia.

Pro­duc­ers El­lenor Cox and Marcus Gillezeau say it’s a priv­i­lege the film, nar­rated by Toni Col­lette, has been ac­cepted into such a pres­ti­gious fes­ti­val.

They say the hon­our is recog­ni­tion of the film’s broader ap­peal and ‘‘all the univer­sal themes con­tained in the film such as friend­ship, courage and pas­sion’’.
