Vans kicked off it’s global premiere tour for their first full-length snowboarding film LANDLINE. in Europe this past weekend. The whole team got together in Austria to ride Innsbruck local’s resort Axamer Lizum, before heading to town for the first viewing of the movie at local cinema Leo Kino.
The highly anticipated movie has been in the works for two years. Shot on 16mm film, it feels like a conclusion to the trilogy of Propeller (skate) and Illustrated (BMX). It has been on a tight, no-leaks lock down, to the point that none of the riders had seen the movie before the big night. Vans opted for a mid-season release combined with a global tour, so they could share the movie and its hype with winter in full swing. As a bonus, Austria just had the best start to its season in a generation, so local stoke levels were running high.
No spoilers here, the movie is essential viewing and best enjoyed on a large screen, so check the global tour stops below. It releases on iTunes on January 26th.
