And the 2014 iF3 Movie Awards go to…

The 2014 iF3 Movie Awards went down Thursday night at Montreal’s Centre Phi. With a stacked lineup of athletes, producers and filmmakers on-site, the show provided for an outstanding (and rowdy) start to the 2014 iF3 Film Festival.

Through the evening, awards were dished to the year’s most deserving projects. The venue, perhaps best described as “cozy,” was packed to the brim, and raucous applause could be heard with the announcements of each big winner. Cali P performed live, the booze flowed like Niagara Falls, and much, much dancing was had.

In the days to come, we’ll be soaking in ski films non-stop. And thanks to last night’s awards show, we now know which ones to pay special attention to. There will be parties. There will be poutine. There will be BIXI bike adventures. And so much more. We’ll be bringing you coverage via @FreeskierLive, Instagram, and of course, freeskier.com. Stay tuned, folks.

Without further ado, the 2014 iF3 Movie Awards go to…
