Get ready for adventure and more! The Whistler Film Festival’s 6th annual Adventure Film Series returns May 17 to 19 as part of Whistler’s Great Outdoors Festival (GO Fest).
WFF’s Adventure Film Series is dedicated to educating, inspiring and motivating audiences about environments, cultures, issues and adventures through the power of the story. Above all else, it is a gathering for like-minded people who get together to celebrate the wonder of wild places and outdoor adventure.
Films: Featuring nine of the best outdoor, adventure and mountain films from extreme sports to activism through adventure, this year’s program will include a selection of the world’s best independent outdoor, adventure films that range from surfing the biggest waves to kayaking the narrowest rivers. Mountain biking, surfing, running, hiking, travelling, aerial photography and just plain adventuring are among the film themes.
Photo Contest & Exhibition: In collaboration with Mountain Life Magazine, WFF presents a photography competition as part of the Adventure Film Series with the winning photo to be featured in the summer issue of Mountain Life Coast Magazine which hits the stands June 1. The top three photos will also be featured online on mountainlifemedia.ca. The contest is open to all ages and the top ten photos will be determined by an online, social voting system, and will be announced on opening night and exhibited throughout the series. Click here for photo competition rules and regulations, and to submit.
Speakers: Speakers include filmmakers attending with their films to speak on inspiring and important topics relating to adventure and mountain culture including science, conservation, sports, education and more.
Education: New for 2019, WFF’s Adventure Film Series features an instructional Adventure Filmmaking Workshop on what it takes to create a great mountain film from conception to execution on the afternoon of May 18, lead by BC filmmakers Grant Baldwin (Director, THIS MOUNTAIN LIFE) and Brian Hockenstein (Director/Producer, THE RADICALS).
