High Five Festival, back to school for the Outdoor planet! » The economic and political newsletter of PACA
After a scorching summer, snow lovers are feverishly awaiting the return to the boards, hoping that there will be no lack of white gold this season…
Before the peaks whiten again, they take their troubles patiently discovering in preview the sliding films that will mark the winter at the High Five Festival. The international ski film festival is back from September 30 to October 2 in Annecy.
With more than 20,000 visitors in recent editions, it marks the end of summer and the start of the winter season and brings together the superstars of the international outdoor scene on the red carpet.
In more than a decade, it has established itself as a reference for all enthusiasts or those curious about the world of board sports, skiing and the mountains.
For this 12th edition, the festival is making a transition towards a 4-season positioning: skiing and snowboarding of course, but also mountain biking, climbing, paragliding, trail running, skateboarding and wakeboarding will be on the bill.
From Friday, September 30 at the end of the day to Sunday, October 2 at the start of the evening, more than 120 films divided between indoor and outdoor cinemas will be presented in the presence of the athletes who wear them.
The High Five Festival offers a much more eclectic 2022 program than in previous years, due in particular to the many sports represented. From pure action films to activist documentaries, videos made entirely by women (who have never been so numerous) to completely unclassifiable films, passing through very introspective projects and incredible expeditions… There will be something for every taste !
