MIRROR FILMS TAKES ON PARK CITY:
WITH FILMS & SCREENINGS AT “ALT FESTS” X-DANCE & SLAMDANCE
Los Angeles – (January 21, 2011) – The creative team at Hollywood-based global production company Mirror Films will be taking on Park City 2011 with films and screenings at X-Dance and Slamdance, two of the longest running and most popular alternative festivals concurrent to Sundance.
Mirror Films' Owner/Executive Producer Eric Barrett is also the Managing Director/EP of X-Dance Action Sports Film Festival, now in its 11th year, which merges the worlds of extreme sports and filmmaking. Additionally, Mirror Films' Director Doug Walker's short documentary "Rhag" will make its World Premiere as part of the Special Screenings Series at the 17th Annual Slamdance Film Festival.

For Mirror’s Eric (“EB”) Barrett, managing and guiding the X-Dance Action Sports Film Festival over its decade-plus years of growth has been a labor of love, uniting his two great passions -- extreme sports and film. “I have been involved with X-Dance from its start because I love action sports and am an athlete myself. As the owner of a production company, I am also committed to great filmmaking. Over the course of 11 years, X-Dance has single-handedly revolutionized this genre into one that showcases films with substance. The films now are story-driven, and these filmmakers are better storytellers because of X-Dance and what our festival has given the community. We are psyched for this year’s festival, which promises once again to be a great one.”
X-Dance 2011 will bring together the world’s top action sports filmmakers, iconic athletes and enthusiasts in order to celebrate action sports culture: Saturday January 22 through Tuesday January 25th in both Park City and Salt Lake City, Utah. This year’s line-up features incredible films starring the likes of madman skier Tanner Hall, soul surfer Rob Machado, world record breaking free skier Grete Eliassen, snowboard maverick Jeremy Jones, kayaking superstar Rush Sturges, and MotoX madman Robbie Maddison. With roots in the action sports world, as well as the mainstream entertainment industry, no event on earth harnesses the creative energy of adrenaline culture like the X-Dance Action Sports Film Festival.

Mirror Films’ Doug Walker, a Director/Editor, is excited about his short doc “Rhag” being selected for Slamdance. “I’m very proud of this film because it is a story about an artist and his life,” explains Walker. “Having worked for a long time in advertising, this gave me an opportunity to do something that was completely fresh and new, and instinctive really. I shot it and cut it; and knew that it was done. I let the camera have a life of its own, like painting on a canvas. I’m excited and honored that Slamdance selected the film for this year’s festival.”
