Passfire is both a 2-hour, feature-length independent documentary, and a series of shorter episodes to be distributed after the feature's release. The combination of the film and the episodes provides an in depth look at the world's most amazing fireworks, the passionate people who make them and the cultures behind them. Slated for release in 2016, Passfire will receive broad global distribution, including TV, theatre, digital download, DVD/Blu-ray and film festivals. Nothing like this has been done before.
"People are going to watch
The APA is proud to help bring a glimpse of these traditions and celebrations from around the world to life for others to understand and appreciate.
- Dan Barker, President, FireOne (Titanium Sponsor)
We find fireworks and their traditions around the world very interesting and to capture this in a film will be of huge value to our industry across the globe. It is an honor to be associated with the production.
- Mat Lawrence, MLE Pyrotechnics (Gold Sponsor)
- Alberto Navarro, Infinity Visions (Gold Sponsor)
- Andy Webb, President, Captain Boom Fireworks (Silver Sponsor)
In my brief 16 years in the industry, I feel I have only scratched the surface of fireworks knowledge in general. I find it fascinating to see Passfire go to the ends of the world and see the many different techniques used.
- Jerry Casabella, Casabella Pyrotechnics
