Movie Night!

There’s nothing like a Monday night for a little breather from the party scene (you can always go after) and a healthy dose of serious Girl Power. The mountains are known to produce some pretty talented women, and on April 13 at 7:30pm we are going to give them the well-deserved spotlight.  We’ll be screening two extremely successful films produced over the past couple of ski/snowboard seasons: The Little Things and Pretty Faces. Prepare to be inspired (and very comfortable in the new Rainbow Theatre seats) at the Whistler Conference Centre!
 
The Little Things

By Darcy Turenne and Marie-France Roy

The Little Things is a snowboard movie project based on environmentally conscious riders who are inspirational through their riding, as well as their sustainable ways of living and thinking. The film is an initiative taken on by professional snowboarder Marie-France Roy and directed by Filmmaker Darcy Turenne in which all the riders are bringing to life the importance of protecting and living in balance with our environment.

100% of proceeds from the film will be donated to Protect Our Winters (POW) and The David Suzuki Foundation (DSF). The goal is to bring snowboarding one step ahead while inspiring positive change that will secure the same lifestyle and quality of life that we have for future generations.
 
Pretty Faces - The Story of a Skier Girl 

From Unicorn Picnic Productions

Pretty faces is an all-female ski film featuring the best athletes from around the world in celebration of playing outside, pushing the sport of skiing and living up to our fullest potential as a supportive community. Inspired by the desire to offer young girls role models and inspiration to play outside, this film aims to capture all the girl stoke from the pioneers who have paved the way to the "never-evers" who will continue to define what it means to ski like a girl.
