Wow, IF3 was an experience for sure. Athan and I traveled to Montreal for IF3 and expected to get our show to a larger and a more jib/jump/park oriented crowd, but not much beyond that.

Montreal. New city for Dendrite.

IF3 was a blur. Late nights of parties, long days of watching numerous awesome ski flicks!

During the final evening of the festival, the Newschoolers Awards were given out. We were extremely stoked to be awarded ‘Best Big Mountain Movie’ in the Open category. The nominees were: our movie, MSP’s The Way I See it, and PBP’s Revolver. To beat out MSP and PoorBoyz who both have some rather large budgets and our film shot and produced out of our pockets, feels pretty damn good.

Pleasantly surprised and uber stoked!

We are super thankful to even be nominated in the same realm as these two juggernauts. MSP’s film was amazing, with plenty of humor and as they always do, amazing cinematography.
Poorboyz’ Revolver was incredible as well. These companies have been inspirations for us. So to be considered amongst peers is an amazing feeling.

The venue for the madness.

We also want to give a shout out to our favorite film of the fest “Azadi” by B4Apres. We spent a lot of time hanging with Anthony Bonello and his documentary was a beautiful portrayal of the people and hardships of Kashmir and how skiing, as it brings joy to us skiers, can bring a new light to the locals.

We are ready for more and the next couple of projects are brewing. Look for “Out of the Shadows” to be available soon right here on dendritestudios.com. We appreciate the patience in getting our film out to the masses. It is almost here!

see ya
