It was a packed house in Denver, Colorado, for Vans’ premiere of “LANDLINE,” featuring some of the most iconic and up-and-coming riders in the game, including Bryan Iguchi, Pat Moore, Darrell Mathes and Jake Kuzyk.
The film drew a massive crowd at The House Of Vans as the snow community descended on the mile-high city for Outdoor Retailer + Snow Show, and marked the first time Vans has created a global snowboard film.
Directed by long-time snowboarder turned filmmaker and emerging cinematographer Tanner Pendleton, LANDLINE was shot primarily on Kodak 16mm film and conveys a raw, behind-the-lens perspective of the Vans snowboard team as they travel the globe showcasing their creative talents and eclectic personalities on and off the mountain.
Prior to the screening, Vans hosted a panel with the pros, Pendleton, Vans Global Marketing Manager Kevin Casillo and Kodak executives to discuss the making of the film.
"So much went into the making of LANDLINE by such a rad group of individuals," said Vans global snow team rider Jake Kuzyk. "Everyone at Vans, the filmers and snowboarders, they put all they had into this film. We dreamed of this project, and here it is. I'm just proud to be a part of it all, and couldn't be happier to show it to the world."
The evening wrapped up with a live performance from iconic rock band Dinosaur Jr., and a DJ set from Thurston Moore.
On the heels of the film's official world premiere at the House of Vans Denver, LANDLINE. continues its international global tour with final stops in China and South Korea.
