With ski movies premiering in a ski town near you, it calls for the first ski film award event—the International Freeski Film Festival (iF3).

Last night, kicking off the iF3 2014 edition in Montreal, awards went out in several sub categories within the larger Pro, Open, and Amateur categories. TGR’s 2014 release, Almost Ablaze, which premiered last weekend in Teton Village, Wyoming, took home Film of the Year, while TGR newcomer Nick McNutt won Rookie of the Year. MSP Films’ Days Of My Youth won Best Big Mountain Film in which Cody Townsend won Best Male Freeride Segment, and Stept Productions’ Ten and Two took home Best Urban Movie and Best Storytelling.
