The International Freeski Film Festival (iF3) has announced that its European event has sadly come to an end. The infamous film festival, founded in Montreal, Quebec, Canada first started its European venture in Annecy, France in 2010. After a four-year relationship between Annecy based licensing agency Like That and iF3, the two companies have mutually decided to go in separate directions. While iF3 will miss its loyal French fan base, the Like That agency has decided to start a new ski film festival based in Annecy. For more info, see the press release below.
