Very funny yet often moving, RINGERS: LORD OF THE FANS shows the hidden
power behind Tolkiens books -- and how after 50 years a single literary
work continues to spark the minds and hearts of millions, across cultures
and across time. Ringers explores the real foundations of Middle-earth; a
community of true fans who share a common bond. Moving beyond cult classic
and over several different generations, the film unearths academics,
musicians, authors, filmmakers, and a plethora of pop junkies -- the
gathered under the banner of Ringer.

RINGERS: LORD OF THE FANS spent 16 months shooting on three continents.
Produced in association with the popular Tolkien fan-site,
Ringers stands as the most comprehensive film document of the ongoing
of The Lord of the Rings.
