Rival Films, the company that last year produced a documentary on the Boston College-Boston University rivalry, will craft the first official film of the men’s Frozen Four in Detroit this season.
Plans for the film call for it to follow a player from each team through the week and include behind-the-scenes footage.
“The Men’s Frozen Four is one of the best college sporting events that centers on excitement, tradition and NCAA student-athletes,” Matt Fults, Rival Films’ owner and director, said in a news release. “The beauty of the tournament is that anyone can win in any given year. All you need is the opportunity to play in the event. We’re thrilled to work with the NCAA to give hockey fans a unique look at this spectacular event, especially in a year where it’s destined to break attendance records.”
A one-hour version will be shown on NHL Network in June. Rival Films also will produce an extended-cut movie for DVD release.
Rival Films’ most recent production was “The Battle of Comm Ave — Boston University vs. Boston College.”
