WSSF 2013Now in its third year the Intersection Film Contest is back again for another residency at the World Ski & Snowboard Contest. This cool contest shines the spotlight on local ski and snowboard crews from around the Whistler area.

This year's contest features 4 local film crews battling it out for a $15,000 grand prize. The teams competing in this year's contest include: Heat Films, Leo Zuckerman, Nuulife, Voleurz. To read up on all of this year's entrants jump over to the WSSF website.

In order to enter this contest teams must abide by a strict set of guidelines. First of all films must feature both skiing and snowboarding disciplines. Teams only have 7 days to shoot a 5-7 minute film which must feature 30 seconds of park footage & 30 seconds of WB in-bound terrain. The entire film must be shot within 100 miles of Whistler and 75% of footage must be recorded on snow. If you can meet this criteria you and your local crew will be in the running for the big prize.

This contest has become more and more popular with each passing year's and now takes place in the Whistler Conference Centre where it's viewed by a 1500+ person audience. Entry into this year's event costs $25 - tickets can be purchased online at the Intersection WSSF website. The contest kicks off at 8PM at the Whistler Conference Centre on Friday, April, 19.
