Alpine Athlete Film Tour
October 16, 2012–January 15, 2013
Their joint 2011 film tour was such a hit that DYNAFIT, the ski touring and mountaineering sports specialist, and PrimaLoft®, the innovative producer of insulation materials, will once again present “cliff-hanger” films featuring all aspects of alpine sports. This year the renamed “ALPINE ATHLETE FILM TOUR” will give audiences the chance to vote for their favorite film after each screening. At the end of the tour the winning filmmakers will be presented with the equally new “ALPINE ATHLETE FILM AWARD” along with prize money in recognition of their achievements. To make it more fun, prizes and top quality gear will be raffled among the spectators. The ALPINE ATHLETE FILM AWARD allows the two brands to promote the themes of the films which will be screened in cooperation with retail partners at 31 locations in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Italy and Spain from October 16th to mid-January. The “ALPINE ATHLETE FILM AWARD” adds to the suspense. Spectators and filmmakers alike will be kept in the dark until the end of the tour as to which film will ultimately receive the award.
