Best of the Fest

Whistler BC • April 8-17, 2016

Crowds at the World Ski and Snowboard Festival - WSSF.COM


The Best of the Fest relives all the good times plus more, as you’ll get to experience a few of the amazements you might have missed out on whilst you were, gasp, sleeping!

We’ll be showing the:
- Winning film from the Olympus 72hr Filmmaker Showdown
- Winning film from Intersection; Action sports filmmaking competition
- Winning slideshow of photos in the Olympus Pro Photographer Showdown

All proceeds go to The Whistler Refugee Response Group in sponsoring a refugee family to come to Whistler. 

The Syrian refugee crisis is arguably the largest humanitarian crisis of our generation. According to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), over 3 million people have fled to Syria's immediate neighbours; Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan and Iraq. 6.5 million people are internally displaced within Syria, half of those are children. 
 
There are 25,481 refugees who have arrived in Canada or who have been approved but have not yet travelled to Canada. There are 5,305 refugee applications that have been finalized, but they have not yet travelled to Canada. 
 
With the money we raise, we will be able to financially support a refugee family for one year. During this first year and beyond, we will further support the family through community integration, language training and employment assistance. If we raise above and beyond our goal, we will look to sponsor a second family or donate the remaining funds to another refugee family.
