6 Local Films You Need to See
January 28 2021
We're bringing you some locally sourced, free range content from the peaks of Revelstoke and beyond.
This winter, we're taking the opportunity to dive deep into the local scene. Here's a lineup of films made by Revelstokians who call this place home; whether they were drawn from afar, or Revy born and raised.
The A6ENCY: Wild Life
"We weren't raised in the mountains, but look at us now!" Filmed mostly at Revelstoke Mountain Resort and surrounding area.
Without a Paddle
Without a Paddle is an adventure film that blends the history of the upper Columbia River with a 140km paddle from the foot of the Mica Dam to the top of the Revelstoke Dam. Four intrepid snowboarders seek to retrace a portion of David Thompson's footsteps down the Columbia River, in the middle of January, during one of the coldest snaps in recorded history in Revelstoke.
It is often said that the hardest part of any adventure is getting out the door. Planning and packing are tedious and time-consuming. But the moment you cross over the threshold from the distractions of the real world to the freedom of the hills, everything seems to just fall into place.
Barnyard: Winter 2019/20 Premier
"Winter ski season with the homies." See what Revy locals Ryland Grimm, Shey Townley, Lowell Schmidt, Simon Brittin, and Seth Chevier do for fun in their own backyard.
Coming Up For Air
Freerider and splitboarder Tristan Hansen taking it from the top in Coming Up For Air. Filmed during two weeks with the Pirate Crew in the Monashee and Selkirk mountains.
The Blondes: Hot Laps
Follow along with Janelle Yip, Emily Childs and Tonje Kvivik as they slash and burn their way through classic Revelstoke terrain.
