Last Saturday the Coldsmoke Winter Film tour culminated in Bozeman Montana, during the Coldsmoke Awards Ceremony where winning filmmakers in 9 categories were awarded $10,000 in prize money. In the mix was Coldsmoke ambassador and pro-snowboarder Scotty Vine, photographers Justin Chambers and Laura Austin, and our graphic designer Justin Kizzart, who was live screen printing Coldsmoke tees. The evening was characterized by colorful presenters and warm mountain culture vibes.
Out of 40 film entries, this year’s grand prize went to the Norwegian film, North of the Sun, about a two hearty lads who build a shelter and score secluded waves on a remote Norwegian Island. And the People’s Choice Award, awarded to the winner of the People’s Choice online viewing and voting contest, went to Vaya a la Cumbre, a film that tells the universal tale of son’s struggle to live a life of his own while in the shadow of his father’s legacy.
