Three Nelson directors and an athlete will have films at this year’s Vancouver International Mountain Film Festival.
Clay Mitchell of Nelson’s CK9 Studios will screen his film Tatum Monud – Passage during the online festival, which runs online Nov. 12 to Dec. 12.
“Tatum Monod’s career has held doors of every kind,” reads the film’s synopsis. “Doors that reach back as far as her grandfather and have carried on through generations. Her career, successes, losses and injuries have all shaped the skier and person she is today. This short film will open these doorways and uncover the sources of her inspiration.”
Eric Crosland’s feature film La Liste: Everything Or Nothing follows skier Jeremie Heitz and Sam Anthamatten as they travel to some of the world’s highest mountain ranges. The film is only available in Canada from noon on Nov. 21 to noon on Nov. 23.
Highline world record holder Mia Noblet is the subject of the short film Desire Lines, which documents her return to Nelson to highline near Whitewater Ski Resort. The film is also directed by Nelson’s Ryan Flett.
