"First screening will be at @mammothfilmfestival on Feb 29 and I'll be there with Rodney Mullen and the filmmakers for a panel discussion afterwards."

Following the screening, 'Tony Hawk's Pro Skater' cover band The Downhill Jam are also on board for the after party playing hits from the franchise's classic soundtracks.

The first Tony Hawk game launched on back in 1999, and it was followed by 16 titles across a number of series including the likes of 'Underground', 'American Wasteland' and 'Shred'.
