It’s Premiere Season: Here are the biggest ski film premieres of 2013

Comments by Henrik Lampert/

It’s that time of year. The red carpet rolls out, athletes make their grand appearance, autographs are signed, Instagrams are snapped, drinks are knocked back, free swag showers the masses, the lights dim, the movie rolls, and the roaring applause commences.

This fall, this very sequence will play out in theaters all around the world, as skiing’s best film producers unveil their new projects. Whether you make your way to a one-night show, or to the likes of an iF3 stop—for many days’ worth of partying and film screenings—you’re destined to have a great time. Spirits are high with a new winter season just around the corner, you’ll enjoy reliving standout moments from the year gone by, and you’ll likely have a chance to meet your favorite pros. Without further ado, here are the who, what, when and where—your guide to premiere season 2013.
