This year’s fifth annual IF3 is already in the works and we are excited to announce the official dates of the Nike 6.0 IF3 International Freeski Film Festival, taking place from September 15th - 18th 2011, in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. With the success of the first edition of IF3 Europe we are also pleased to confirm its return to Annecy, France, in the heart of French Alps on September 30th - October 2nd, 2011.

The IF3 is also proud to announce its partnership with action sports leader Nike 6.0 with the event becoming the Nike 6.0 IF3 2011. We are excited to have Nike 6.0 as the main ski platform of communication and we promise a lot of surprises coming from this collaboration. Faithful and recurring partners such as The North Face and Salomon are presenting sponsors as well, along with a new partner: Oberson, one of the biggest ski shops in Canada.

IF3 is also supported by Coors Light (the official beer of the Festival), Jay Peak (the official ski resort of the Festival), Red Bull (the official energy drinkof the Festival), Recco (the official safety partner of the Festival), Newschoolers (the official web media of the Festival), SBC Skier (the official magazine of the Festival), ENjeu (the official environemental partner of the Festival), Delta Montréal (the official lodging of the Festival) and Zapiks (the official video player of the Festival).

We will be celebrating our 5th anniversary in style by putting together some of the wildest parties of the year! In one of Montreal’s biggest venues, Reggae sensation Cali P and Tanner Hall are coming back to present Cali P’s newest album. Big mountain slayer Sean Pettit will also be hosting his first IF3 party and celebrating his fifth year in a row at the festival with an 80’s heavy metal rock party!
