Alaska Ski Stories
DUE OCTOBER 8th
Two length categories:

Under 5 min
Alaska is a legendary center in the ski world. As Alaskans, we want to celebrate the incredible skiing and adventures shared in these mountains we all love - and the community created by these shared experiences.
This is a film festival celebrating the magic of Alaska ski culture. From steep spine lines to Turnagain powder meadows, magic carpet toddler laps, or Juneau rain skiing - we love it all.
Our 2023 world premier will be November 2nd at Beartooth Theatrepub in Anchorage, AK. Full tour dates TBD! The 2022 festival held 9 showings across AK, selling out multiple venues and raising money for 5 non-profit ski-related partners.

FILMS WE WANT
Every type of skiing and in any filmmaking style is welcomed: powder meadow-skipping, stomping spine lines, animation, backcountry dogs with goggles, 5 year old groms loving the wiggle, an artistic light show, summer snowblading. We want it all! Give us documentary, narrative, live action, art films, science, experimental stories. As long as it celebrates Alaska skiing and culture, that’s our jam. For the first year of this festival, given this summer announcement, we understand that you are limited to footage you have already taken. We look forward to your creativity.
WHAT DO WE MEAN BY "ALASKAN"
What does it mean to “be an Alaskan”, in a sense, to belong to a place? For the purposes of this film festival, we define it simply as folks who feel a special affinity for the lands here, find it a significant part of their lives, and have spent time here building a relationship with its place and people.
