One of the most kick ass ski & snowboard video contests in the world, Intersection at the World Ski & Snowboard Festival in Whistler, B.C. (which Forecast is proud to be a sponsor of), is back... and they want you to compete. The deadline for expressions of interest is this Friday (February 19th), so check out all the details below and don't miss out on you and your crew's chance to take home ten thousand loonies.
INTERSECTION - WSSF - WHISTLER, BC
FRIDAY, APRIL 15, 2016
This is the ultimate event. Now in its sixth year, Intersection will once again see action sport filmmaking pushed to its limits.
Up to 8 spots are up for grabs, and the chosen crews will each put together a 5-7 minute ski/snowboard film, unique to this competition, that incorporates artistic vision and a whole lot of shredding. The challenge: they only have 7 days to shoot, edit and produce the film, it must be shot within 100km of Whistler, each film must contain 30 seconds of park footage and 30 seconds of WB in-bound terrain.
Teams will battle it out for the grand prize of $10,000. A 1500+ strong audience will pack the Whistler Conference Centre on Friday, April 15 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 crew will receive $1,000 for participating.

The competition (7 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 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.
