Breaking BoundarIES
2019 Snowboard, Freestyle and Freeski
World Champs Youth Film Contest


Film contest

DEADLINE // August 1, 2018

The Park City Summit County Arts Council, the Park City Film Series, and U.S. Ski & Snowboard have partnered to present the Breaking Boundaries // 2019 Snowboard, Freestyle and Freeski World Champs Youth Film Contest. We are looking for young filmmakers (21 and under) to tell stories about breaking boundaries. In the world of elite competitive snowboarding, freestyle and free skiing, athletes challenge themselves to push the boundaries of creativity and difficulty to be the best in the world in these sports. The best in the world challenge the expectations of what is possible.

We are asking these filmmakers to tell stories of breaking boundaries in their community. These stories do not necessarily need to be about skiing or snowboarding or competitive sport, rather we are looking for stories that will inspire the community and the athletes of the 2019 FIS World Championships.

All entries will be posted to the Breaking Boundaries // 2019 Snowboard, Freestyle and Freeski World Champs
Youth Film Contest Vimeo Group (https://vimeo.com/groups/510639) and fill out the submission form
with your full name, date of birth, address, description of the piece along with your Breaking Boundaries story.
