Teton Gravity Research + Anthill Films Announce unReal Movie Seattle Premiere

Teton Gravity Research + Anthill Films Announce unReal Movie Seattle Premiere

The Unreal MovieunReal movie to Premiere in Seattle June 19, 2015

Escape the real world and join us for the Seattle premiere of unReal Movie June 19, 2015 at the Neptune Theatre with screenings at 6:30pm and 9:00pm. The first feature film from the unprecedented creative union of action sport production companies Teton Gravity Research (TGR) and Anthill Films, unReal Movie is inspired by the unlimited imaginations of some of the world’s best mountain bikers. Shot exclusively in 4K, the film will transport viewers into the unReal world, a wild place of wonder where there are no boundaries, no rules and anything is possible.

All attendees will receive a lift ticket voucher to the Stevens Pass Bike Park and can enter the unReal movie Tour Contest for a chance to win a custom unReal Trek Slash fully equipped with Shimano XTR, a trip for two to the Whistler Mountain Bike Park, or a Sony Action Cam. The unReal movie film tour is expected to be among the biggest in mountain bike film history.

unReal movie is for those of us who escape. A film that celebrates breaking free from the confines of reality and venturing into a boundless world. This place isn’t remote or hard to find, and yet many never see it. Here, glacial walls transform into mountain bike trails, rain and snow aren’t the only elements to fall from the sky and thousand pound mammals become riding partners. Breathtaking visuals conjure feelings of awe and pure joy; feelings that only those of us who venture outside can truly understand. This film is dedicated to you — the dreamers, the rule-breakers, the ones who never grow up, the ones who know the secret — the ones who know the way into the unReal world.

Riders: Brandon Semenuk, Brett Rheeder, Cam McCaul, Graham Agassiz, Steve Smith, Tom van Steenbergen and Thomas Vanderham, with Brook Macdonald, Finn Iles, Ian Morrison, James Doerfling, Matty Miles and friends

A #REALvsUNREAL contest will run until June 22 encouraging the creation and sharing of juxtaposed photos or video clips (one from the real world and one from the unReal world) with prizes including a custom unReal-themed Trek Slash, along with product from Shimano, Sony Action, Evoc, Smith and Western Digital.

unReal movie is co-produced by Teton Gravity Research and Anthill Films. Written, directed and edited by Anthill Films. Art direction and additional writing by Good Fortune Collective. Presented by Sony in association with Shimano and Trek. Additional support for the film is provided by Bike Magazine, Evoc, Knolly, Pinkbike.com, Rocky Mountain, Western Digital, and Whistler Mountain Bike Park.
