Expanded distribution to enhance iconic event dedicated to conservation and inclusion.
Boulder, Colorado (February 13, 2023) /OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – Outside Interactive, Inc. and Adventure Entertainment today announced the completion of a new partnership to grow the Fly Fishing Film Tour (F3T) in the USA and internationally. This annual tour is a traveling roadshow of the best fly fishing films from passionate anglers and cinematographers around the world. Through a competitive submission process, films are selected to bring great angling stories to the big screen in more than 150 locations. More than just a film tour, F3T kicks off the annual fly fishing season, celebrates new faces and places in the sport, and highlights conservation efforts.
In the new partnership, Adventure Entertainment will acquire the Fly Fishing Film Tour from Outside and take over full management of the tour, which premieres in Salt Lake City on March 2, 2023. Outside continues as a major sponsor and the exclusive distributor of the films via its streaming service, Outside Watch. Following the completion of in-person events, Outside Watch will air the films across its linear, CTV, and web channels, which together reach 58 million viewers in North America.
“We’re delighted to extend our existing partnership with Adventure Entertainment, who have been a terrific ally as our international tour licensee for a number of years for both the F3T and the Warren Miller Film Tour,” said Robin Thurston, CEO of Outside. “The Adventure Entertainment team delivers best-in-class client service and customer experiences, and its focus on growing these events will enable Outside to lean harder into our own core mission, which is delivering content that inspires and enables everyone to get outside. We’re excited to partner with Adventure Entertainment to welcome new enthusiasts into this passionate audience.”
“The Fly Fishing Film Tour is an iconic brand with 17 years of rich history, and we’re stoked to work with the community to build on that legacy,” said Toby Ryston-Pratt, CEO of Adventure Entertainment. “We have met many wonderful people in the industry, and we have so much respect for the roots of fly fishing and the conservation ethic that knits together the guides, outfitters, and associations. This acquisition represents a significant step forward for Adventure Entertainment that will fuel the growth of our existing film and advertising business in the USA across our suite of tours and digital assets, including the Women’s Adventure Film Tour and Kendal Mountain Tour.”
The 2023 Fly Fishing Film Tour is presented by Costa, YETI, and Simms Fishing, and it will be supported by a host of national partners along with local outfitters and independent promoters.
