Whistler based Sherpas Cinema have become known for their stunning cinematography and ground-breaking story-telling.

Awards include Best Feature-Length Mountain Film” – Banff Mountain Film Festival 2011; “Movie Of The Year” – Powder Video Awards 2012; “Best Film” – X-Dance Film Festival, SLC 2012; “Best Picture” – International Freeride Film Festival, France 2011 and “Best Film Of The Year” – Adventure Film Festival, Copenhagen 2011.

Fans of adventure films in Kimberley will have a chance to view Sherpas’ latest offering, “Into the Mind” when the Dirtbag Festival brings it to the Kimberley Conference and Athlete Training Centre on Saturday, October 12.

The movie has a Kimberley connection, as aspiring film maker Kalum Ko (see related story, Front Page) worked on the film.

“Last spring and summer, I worked with Sherpas Cinema, one of my favourite film companies,” Ko said. “In the spring, I was the production assistant on a two-week shoot in Calgary for their most recent film, “Into the Mind”.  During the summer I was in Whistler working for them as an editor. This past weekend, I attended the world premier in Whister.  It was really cool to see how the whole film came together, and that all their hard work paid off.”

Press for the movie states, The Sherpas blur the lines between dream state and reality, and immerse you into the mind of a common skier as he attempts to climb and ski the ultimate mountain. Innovative athlete segments are actually a glimpse into his dreamscape, each one harboring messages that help inform our hero’s current, real-life choices.  As you experience the majesty of Alaska, Bolivia, the Himalaya and beyond, Into the Mind paints a philosophical portrait of human kind.  How do we balance risk versus reward?  Why are we inspired to rise to the challenges in our lives and what do we learn on this journey to attain them?

Athletes appearing in the film are Callum Pettit, Kye Petersen, JP Auclair, Tom Wallisch, Rory Bushfield, Eric Hjorleifson, Austin Ross, Kris Erickson, Johnny Collinson, Xavier de le Rue, Benji Farrow, Ingrid Backstrom, Izzy Lynch, Angel Collinson, DCP, Jimmy Chin, Renan Öztürk, Matty Richard , Ian Mcintosh, Mark Abma, Conrad Anker, Samuel Anthamatten, Karma Tsering, Chris Rubens, Julian Carr, Stan Rey, Tatum Monod, James McSkimming, and Joel Loverin.

It was shot on location in Whistler, Revelstoke, Nelson, and Bella Coola, Denali National Park, Alaska, Calgary, Zermatt, Switzerland, Bolivia, Nepal and Costa Rica.

Doors at the Conference Centre open at  6 p.m. Show at 7:30 p.m. Come early for refreshments, and pizza.

Tickets are $15, $10 for youth. Kids under six are free.
