The inspiring drama TRI screens in Royal Oak, MI on August 4.
This screening presented by Infinite Multisport Triathlon Club and Allenton Mini Storage, will see all proceeds donated to Women For Tri, an organization that promotes a healthy and active lifestyle for women through the sport of triathlon.
Selected by Women For Tri as this year’s “Inspiring Woman”, 2016 IRONMAN World Championship competitor Erin Byrge, heads up this special fundraising screening event in which all proceeds will be used to fund a grant and college scholarship program that will encourage women to participate in the sport and show others that “anything is possible”!
In addition to winning Film of the Year at NOVA, Jai Jamison’s inspiring drama snared the NOVA Award, Best Actress (Jensen Jacobs), Best Family / Faith Based Film, and Best Inspirational Film.
TRI was also a Runner Up for Best Cinematography (Feature Film) and Best Editing (Feature Film).
The film also recently won the Indie Spirit Best Story Line Award from the Boston International Film Festival.
TRI is an inspiring, emotionally-charged drama about a medical technician with a history of not finishing things who is inspired by a cancer patient to sign up for her first Triathlon. The film’s potent garland of performers includes Jensen Jacobs and legendary TV star Tim Reid.
Natalie (Award-winning actress Jensen Jacobs), an ultrasound tech with a history of not finishing things, is inspired by a cancer patient to sign up for a Triathlon. Natalie is introduced to the strange (and aerodynamic) world of triathletes and meets a colorful cast of characters as she trains for the Nation’s Triathlon. With the support of her new teammates, she digs deep to discover just how far she can push her mind and body.
TRI is the first scripted feature narrative about triathlons that has been developed for theatrical release. Triathlon is the fastest growing endurance sport in the world and was the fastest growing of all sports in the UK in 2014. There are over 600,000 athletes registered with USA Triathlon, and over 3.2 million worldwide.
Although the film uses triathlon as a backdrop, the niche target market for the film is female runners. Of the roughly 20 million finishers of running events in 2014, 60 percent were women.
The concept of TRI is to raise awareness and hope for those who are seeking compassion or understanding while dealing with cancer as a caregiver, a patient and a survivor.
The writing team for TRI includes a two time Ironman finisher and professional triathlon coach who has led cancer awareness programs; a cancer survivor; and, an award winning screenwriter who has lost loved ones to cancer.
Jensen Jacobs, Shawn Pelofsky, Jaylen Moore, Chris Williams, Kelly Spitko, Tim Reid and Walker Hays star in a Jai Jamison film, written by Theodore Adams III, Monica Lee Bellais and Jai Jamison. The Executive Producers include Kimberly Skyrme, Regional Casting Director for House of Cards, and Russell Williams II, a two time Academy Award winner.
