“This festival is a celebration of the best ski films ever made. There are many different kinds of ski films so a real variety were nominated and became chosen for many different reasons. Some were innovative or influential leading the way, others captured people, events or times. But together I think they are our sport’s essentials and this week’s festival offers a rare moment to see them as they should be seen, on a big screen. It is interesting that all these were made on film, no video production was selected. Anyone who comes to the awards ceremony Tuesday will see a glimpse of each film, and hear from the filmmakers. From celebrating our sport’s storied past we gain the perspective to view its future.” Ric Moulton, chairman Film Institute Steering Committee, explained.
