The Whitler Film Festival 2020 Has Epic Films

Don't miss the mountain culture ski and snowboard films

The Whistler Film Festival (WFF) is taking place from Dec. 1 to 20 online here, with films, content summit sessions, talent talks and events.

WFF isn’t a mountain festival like Vancouver or Banff, but there is a Mountain Culture category that climbers and skiers will be interested in watching.

On Dec. 12, you can watch: 12,000 KM (snowboard film in Russia and Japan), Blind Faith (Canadian para-skier), Born from Junk (history of mountain biking), On Falling (abouth mountain bike falls and injury) and Made in Voyage (bus-life ski road trip). Day 1 (para-skiers first day back skiing), Shaped by Descent (Alaska ski film), Motherload (mothers who lost husbands to skiing in B.C.), End of the Road (American backcountry skiing) and Without a Paddle (Paddling in winter and snowboarding near Revelstoke).

Made in Voyage

Motherload

It is often said that the hardest part of any adventure is getting out the door. Planning and packing are tedious and time consuming. But the moment you cross over the threshold from the distractions of the real world to the freedom of the hills, everything seems to just fall into place.

Said no mother ever.

Follow professional skiers and mothers Tessa Treadway and Izzy Lynch as they carry the load of loss, life changing events, and the love of their children into the mountains where they find the moments of peace, growth and healing that help them carry on.
