The Midwest Ski Film Festival is back again in 2011, but with a fresh new format, and a new home. The Fourth Annual Midwest Ski Film Festival presented by Jiberish is taking place at Minneapolis’ Loring Theater on October 21st , and October 22nd. We are excited to bring a new two-day format, and our largest festival yet to the epicenter of the Midwest skiing scene. This year four of our six professional films were filmed within the city limits of Minneapolis, and this gives us a unique opportunity to highlight the importance that the Midwest plays in modern ski films.
Mike Hornbeck and Tom Wallisch will once again be in attendance at the Midwest Ski Film Festival.
The Festival Kicks off on Friday October 21st at 7pm at The Loring Theater. The night will start with a screening of 4bi9 Media’s “Beggin’ For Change”, followed by Stept Productions’ “Weight”, and the night will finish off with Level 1 Productions’ “After Dark”. Jiberish Athletes Tom Wallisch and Mike Hornbeck will be in attendance from all the films, signing autographs, and talking shop. A special after party will follow at the Cabooze featuring "Big Gigantic", and tickets are available through ticketfly at http://ticketf.ly/pvtI9y.
Summit Boardshop will host a rail jam in their "Backyard".
The next day at Noon we will be hosting a rail jam at Summit Ski Shop in Lake Elmo, Minnesota. Summit is well known for its “Backyard” featuring their own private rope toe and rail park. Pro skiers from the festival’s films will judge the Rail Jam, giving local skiers a shot at impressing their idols. The Festival will then continue back at the Loring Theatre at 6pm featuring showings of Toy Solider Productions’ “Set Your Sights”, Meathead Films’ “Prime Cut”, and Poor Boyz Productions’ “The Grand Bizarre”. The night will cap off with The Official MWSFF After Party taking place immediately following the last film at The Loring Theater featuring live music.
