Montreal, August 7th, 2012 - It’s that time of the year again! The International Freeski Film Festival 2012 ski film selection has been made! The iF3 2012 tour recently kicked off on August 3rd with its newest installment, iF3 La Parva, a unique night of movies and celebrations in Santiago, Chile. The Nike iF3 in Montreal will take place in a little over a month from September 12-16th. Following the Montreal edition, iF3 will take the show on the road to Annecy, France, and will introduce a new stop in Innsbruck, Austria.
Global expansion has always been a driving force behind iF3, and even while growing the tour with new events and initiatives, iF3 has managed to keep a focus on the number one objective-- uniting and promoting all aspects of freeskiing. iF3 celebrates athletes, film producers, photographers and journalists who consistently push the limits of skiing and progress, not only of the sport, but of the whole community.
