The 12th Annual Fernie Mountain Film Fest (FMFF) is coming to Fernie!

Martina and Tania Halik: Coast Mountain Epic
Coast Mountain Epic is a live multi-media presentation detailing a five and half month long ski traverse of the Coast Mountains of BC and Alaska. Undertaken from January to June of 2017 by a mother and daughter team from BC, this presentation features their challenges, close-calls, failures and successes throughout the Coast mountain Epic.
Over 2300 km and six months through BC’s Coast Range over the largest temperate-latitude icecaps in the world. In the middle of winter. There will be storms. Crazy biblical mountain tempests like you saw in documentaries about Everest as a kid. Our packs will be way too heavy. There will be crevasses, avalanches, sketchy river crossings and bushwhacking through devil’s club and hawthorn when the snowpack gets too low. There will be an almost incomprehensible amount of mountain terrain between Squamish B.C and our goal in Skagway A.K.

The Last Honey Hunter
Director: Ben Knight; Producer: Ben Ayers, Renan Ozturk, Travis Rummel; Production Company: Felt Soul Media 36 Mins 2017
Maule Dhan Rai is the last man in the remote Nepal village of Saadi who’s been visited in a dream by a wrathful forest spirit called Rongkemi. If no one else in the village has the dream, a generations-old tradition of honey gathering may die.
Awards: Best Film: Mountain Culture (2017 Banff Mountain Film Competition)

Riding the Tatshenshini (biking and rafting)
Darren Berrecloth and fellow riders explored the untapped terrain near the Yukon’s Tatshenshini River, Canada. Rafting 260km with bikes in tow, they search for challenging lines by day and camping by night.
Produced by Red Bull Canada, Freeride Entertainment and TELUS, Riding the Tatshenshini documents the journey of local BC talents, ‘The Godfather’ of freeriding Wade Simmons and Darren ‘The Claw’ Berrecloth, as well as slopestyle pioneer Tyler McCaul and rookie Carson Storch of the US, as they set into untapped terrain to trek, camp and bike in the Yukon and BC’s northern wilderness
