The action sports community is a hybrid of culture circling around art, music and film. With etnies in the mix of it all, it’s the perfect opportunity to introduce etnies Cinema, a unique film series featuring award-winning independent films, live Q & A sessions with the people behind the films and, of course, after-parties.
We kicked off the series with the award-winning film “Lymelife” back in March and presented Stuart Townsend's “Battle In Seattle” on Friday at Yost Theater in Santa Ana.
In addition to etnies Cinema, etnies was a proud sponsor of the Newport Beach Film Festival’s Action Sport Series, which consisted of an international showcase of 20 films and five world premieres that included documentary, narrative, animated and short films within actions sports. Newport Beach is the hub of action sports, with a back yard filled with surfers and skateboarders. The Action Sport Series allows the Newport Beach Film Festival to create a specialty all its own and a place for local future filmmakers’ art to flourish.
