11:00 am – 12:00 pm PT The Ultimate RAD Reunion brings together some very special guests from a 1986 cult classic: Rad. In this special retrospective, stars Talia ShireBill Allen, and Bart Conner, as well as Robert Schwartzman, who painstakingly remastered the film from its original negatives into stunning 4K, sit down with host and Rad superfan Dan Casey to discuss the film’s legacy, rare behind-the-scenes stories, and much more. Directed by Hal Needham and released at the height of the BMX craze, Rad stands the test of time through its relentless charisma, over-the-top stunts, and resonant emotional core. One of the wildest, weirdest, and most wonderful films of the 1980s, Rad is a BMX coming-of-age story like nothing you’ve ever seen before. Mostly because until now the film was incredibly hard to find! Thanks to Robert Schwartzman and Utopia, this fan-favorite film is finally available on Blu-ray through Vinegar Syndrome.

4:00 pm – 5:00 pm PT TokuSHOUTsu Kamen Rider Panel Nerdist’s Kyle Anderson moderates an exclusive panel exploring Kamen Rider, one of the greatest and most beloved tokusatsu series of all time.
