Kootenay Mountain Culture Magazine is hosting their eighth annual Backyard Booty at the Capitol Theatre on Friday.

Backyard Booty celebrates Culture

Fresh off the release of their 10th anniversary edition, Kootenay Mountain Culture is getting ready to celebrate with the Backyard Booty.

Fresh off the release of their 10th anniversary edition, Kootenay Mountain Culture is getting ready to celebrate with the eighth annual Backyard Booty.

“It’s our 10th anniversary as far as the magazine goes so we’re looking forward to celebrating that. We have a special surprise to celebrate the anniversary,” said Kootenay Mountain Culture publisher Mitchell Scott.

This year’s Booty features presentations by Nate Smith, Rossland- based special ops of awesomeness Juicy Studios and a return by Nelson favourite Lucas Myers.

“We probably have more custom created bits created just for the Booty than we have had in the past,” said Scott, who will also be on stage at the Booty. “It’s really started to gain momentum that way where people are creating films specifically to be premiered at the Backyard Booty. It’s a beautifully crafted show this year and we are really excited about it.”

Sherpa Cinemas who have received international acclaim including the 2012 Banff Mountain Film award for Best Full Length feature for their epic ski movie All.I.Can. will also be giving a special surprise to the audience at the Capitol Theatre on Friday.

The Backyard Booty is like a multimedia expansion of the Kootenay Mountain Culture magazine.

“We started it just because we really wanted to showcase a lot of the stuff that we couldn’t actually put in the magazine,” said Scott. “We just really wanted to celebrate a lot of the cool and talented people that were living in the Kootenays. It’s everything from really professional established creative houses all the way down to amateurs just making sort of backyard home movies.”

Scott said Myers has been one of his favourites in the past.

“We had Lucas Myers last year who sort of stormed the show,” he said.

“Groups like Freeride Entertainment have shown a lot of shows over the years. We had one kid, I forget his name, I think it was Logan. He did a stop animation Lego movie. Chloe Mitchell who is a local kid put together some really raw and hilarious ski bum movies.”

Tickets are on sale now at the Capitol Theatre box office. Tickets are $20. Drinks will be served at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 8 p.m.
