November 30 - December 1, 2012The Shadow Box Film Festival
The first film festival dedicated exclusively to boxing
Boxing has always made for great drama. There are few moments in sport as exciting as the culmination of a great fight. Victory or defeat is decided by one final round. The crowd rising, the tension building, the fighters tapping sources of pride and energy they didn't know existed. It's the stuff that legends are made of. The movie industry has been borrowing from that legend for decades. Now there is a place where both worlds collide. The Shadow Box Film Festival will provide a venue for the presentation of boxing films geared to the passionate fans of both art forms.
The festival will take place over two days – Nov. 30 to Dec. 1 – at the SVA Theatre at 333 West 23rd Street in Manhattan. It will showcase 30 boxing films, including 11 features. The films for this festival were shot in nine countries -- Cuba, Thailand, Germany, United States, Canada, Spain, Germany, Argentina and England.

This festival is an opportunity for you to significantly raise your profile by sharing your film with a powerful audience - gaining crucial media attention and strengthening industry relations.
