This grant is intended to support emerging filmmakers specializing in mountain film. We hope it will help them kick start a successful career and enable them to produce a film they have been dreaming of. The recipient will also get the opportunity to be mentored throughout the process by the Arc’teryx professional and in house media team.

The aim is to support the development of Canadian adventure filmmakers, promote self-propelled wilderness adventures and bring the resulting story to the VIMFF screen for our community to enjoy. The deadline for applications is December 31st 2016, for more information on how to apply, please click here.
