We’ve only given out one Lifetime Achievement award, so we chose carefully. The one and only went to ski film legend Warren Miller.
Miller, who came in from Montana for the show, was, as usual full of advice and wisdom. He told us how we should all ski like McConkey and gave some insight into how he first started making movies and scamming lift tickets. He also gave us hope for the future. “Take your age, subtract it from 85,” he said. “That’s how many good years you have left.”
Warren stole the show, but MSP Films also won their fifth Movie of the Year with In Deep. Swift.Silent.Deep. won Best Documentary and Best Editing, and Sweetgrass Productions’ break-out film Signatures won Best Cinematography.
