Crankworx and Whistler Blackcomb celebrate the creative spirit, and storytelling culture of mountain biking in this video throw-down for a seventh year.
Six filmmakers bring us the ride of our lives this summer, showcasing a slice of one athlete’s diary. These four to six-minute videos begin production June 1 and hit the big screen during Crankworx Whistler, August 14. Teams must include the Whistler Valley and Whistler Mountain Bike Park in a quarter of their film—from there it’s free creative licence. They choose the size and scope of their team, their supports, their geographical boundaries. This is the blank canvas of the Crankworx culture beat, shining the spotlight on shooters on the cutting edge of their game.
This year’s contestants span the globe and several genres of photographic and videographic talent. Don’t forget to get your tickets to join us in the licensed area for a beverage —link above.
The Event runs Wednesday, August 14, VIP Experience starts at 8:00 p.m. and event at 8:30 p.m
