Teck Rossland Mountain Film Festival: It’s a Wrap!

The Teck Rossland Mountain Film Festival wrapped up on Sunday after five fun-filled days of programming and events.

This year’s festival enjoyed an excellent reception from the community. The early snow helped to set the mood for mountain movies, and locals and visitors alike came out in droves to enjoy a diverse program with a bit of something for everyone.

Proving that good things come in small (and short) packages, this year’s Aaron Allibone People’s Choice Award went to Nelson film-maker Kari Medig’s The Fence. The film proves that the only thing required to become part of our great global ski community is a love for sliding downhill on two wobbly planks, and a bit of courage.

The Rossland Mountain Film Festival board sends a big thank you to all of the festival sponsors, volunteers, and attendees of this year’s events.  As a non-profit society, these generous donations of time and resources make it all possible.  The Teck Mountain Gala’s Silent Art Auction raised $260 for the Rossland Food Bank. Donations at Saturday’s Family Matinee also provided non-perishable items to our community charity partner.
