Film festival showcases skiing, boarding


Nothing like an Olympic Games bid to bring out all our favourite adventure films. One thing’s for certain this town is full of crazy filmmakers and compelling subjects so it was only fitting the Whistler Film Festival put on three of the best for Celebration 2010.

In an effort to show the world what we’re made of, Whistler Film Festival Director Shauna Hardy, said "Whistler’s film community is thriving and we’re committed to showcasing our local talent."

The films on the frontline at Millennium Place this Thursday, Feb. 20 from 7 p.m. are:


Director: John Zaritsky

Produced: National Film Board of Canada

Cinematography: Christian Begin

Filmed on location in and around Whistler, this popular must see documentary follows a group of local hard-core skiers and snowboarders who turn their backs on society to pursue their passion; exposing the entertaining and often radical alternative lifestyle they refer to as "life in the moguls."
