Where: McKim Middle School Theatre in Kimberley BC

Inspirational films are the focus
Many great films will be shown at the event. To whet the whistle here are two features that are being sponsored by our two main film sponsors:
The Great Siberian Traverse, created in collaboration with POWDER and Sherpas Cinema, follows a team of professional skiers on a 6,000 mile journey along the Trans-Siberian Railway. The film captures skiing’s ancient origins mixed in with deep backcountry powder skiing throughout Russia.
Running Wild tells the story of two ultra marathon runners who are committed to citizen science by trying to capture photographic evidence of endangered wolverines. The film demonstrates a unique and sustainable way of collecting data to help contribute to ecology in a meaningful way.
