Nothing like an Olympic Games bid to bring out all our favourite adventure films. One things 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 were made of, Whistler Film Festival Director Shauna Hardy, said "Whistlers film community is thriving and were 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."
