It was a recent recipient of the People’s choice Award for Best Feature Film at the 2011 San Diego Christian Film Festival, and received rave reviews from film critics across the U.S. after its debut in theaters:
“The really special thing about this film is that the faith which it expresses is not in preaching, moralizing, politics, or even saintly bearers of truth. Instead (for the most part), faith here is in the work that God can effect even when we’re not aware of what we’re doing to help.”– HollywoodJesus.com
“Schneider and Wayne are extraordinarily believable as the estranged father and son at the core of the story – with both a remarkable resemblance and performances that ring true.” –Beliefnet.com
“Hardflip makes it clear that without God first forgiving us, we can’t begin to forgive others.” –PluggedIn.com
“Hardflip is a compelling movie with a Christian worldview.” – Movieguide.org
Additional in depth features with Schneider, Wayne, and Afable can be found on The Christian Post, Christianity Today, and World Net Daily.
HARDFLIP follows the story of Caleb, a young skater whose ill mother (Arquette) and absent father leave him reaching for the only hope he has—becoming a sponsored skater. After finding a stack of old love letters, he sets out to find the father he never knew and inadvertently begins a journey he never could have expected. The film offers viewers an enjoyable, entertaining film about truth and forgiveness, but it also tells the story of being raised by a single mom and the pain, anger and sacrifice from the fallout of not having a father in the home. The film’s Executive Producer is Allan Camaisa and Johnny Remo serves as the award-winning director/producer and writer from SkipStone Pictures. SkipStone Pictures has produced three award winning feature films including “A Letter to Dad”, “Cutback”, and “Hardflip” and is poised to establish itself as an industry leader in producing Faith and Family based entertainment that relays, challenges, and ignites true purpose and passion.
