After a year's hiatus, IF3 Montreal is back and this year, they brought snowboarding along for the party. On Saturday night, Hangar 16 in Montreal's Old Port hosted the ceremony for the coveted IF3 Awards and it was what could be described as a lively affair. Take a look at who took home the gongs, decided by the iF3 Jury (comprised of Jeff Schmuck, Vincent Gagnier, Evan Heath, Zach Aller, Guillaume Morissette and Benjamin Rochette) after viewing more than 80 films over an alcohol heavy couple of days.
