Now in its ninth year, Intersection during the World Ski & Snowboard Festival (WSSF) in Whistler, B.C. will once again see action sports filmmaking pushed to its limits.
Up to six spots are up for grabs, and the chosen crews will each put together a five-to-seven minute ski/snowboard film, unique to this competition, that incorporates artistic vision and a whole lot of shredding. The challenge: they only have seven days to shoot, edit and produce the film; it must be shot within 100 kilometres of Whistler; 75% must be on-snow; and each film must contain 30 seconds of park footage and 30 seconds of Whistler Blackcomb in-bounds terrain.
Once the filming and editing period is all said and done, the teams will battle it out for the grand prize of $10,000. A 1,500+ strong audience will pack the Whistler Conference Centre on Saturday, April 13th, eager to catch the showdown on the big screens and witness who will be crowned Best of Show. Films will be judged on both filmmaking and skiing/snowboarding ability. Each runner up will receive $1,000 for participating.
The competition period (seven days of filming/shooting/editing) will take place in March. Exact dates are to be determined, in hopes of maximizing the best weather March has to offer.
Please note that Intersection submissions will be shown exclusively to ticket holders and will not be released online by WSSF, unless approved by the crew, in sensitivity to the release dates of their other projects.
