DEADLINE: Freestyle Digital Media Acquired North American Rights To The Documentary ‘The Race To Alaska’ – Film Briefs

EXCLUSIVE: Freestyle Digital Media has acquired North American rights to the documentary The Race to Alaska from director Zach Carver, slating it for release across VOD platforms on November 29.

The Race to Alaska is billed as a nail-biting, humorous account of everyday heroes who push themselves to the brink on a 750-mile, engineless boat race through the Pacific Northwest, up the Inside Passage to Alaska. Mixing raw, first-person footage with vast aerials and in-depth interviews, it tells the story of the race’s improbable inception and the epic journey of those who answer its call.

Carver and Greg King wrote the script. The former also produced alongside Ian Morland and Liv von Oelreich. Freestyle negotiated the deal to acquire The Race to Alaska directly with Glen Reynolds of Circus Road Films. Watch the trailer for the film below.
