Held in Aspen, Colorado, every September, The Meeting is an annual prelude to winter: athletes, filmmakers, and other snowsports personalities gather for a weekend of parties and ski and snowboard film premieres. “The Meeting is a great way to kick off the winter season,” says Teton Gravity Research’s Dirk Collins. “It is one of those special events that only comes along a couple times a year where athletes, filmmakers, and industry magnates all get together in one place to share ideas and good times. And there is no better place to host an industry film festival than Aspen.”
This year, 12 films will be showing September 24-27 at three venues: the Wheeler Opera House, Belly Up, and the Sundeck on top of Aspen Mountain. The films include Matchstick Productions’ In Deep, TGR’s Re:Session, Poor Boyz Productions’ Every Day is a Saturday, Nimbus Independent’s Contrast, Level 1’s Refresh, and more. Simon Dumont has already arrived in Aspen and more are on their way. Skiing’s Megan Michelson will be blogging from Aspen over the weekend—so stay tuned.
