We are proud to announce the beginning of an exciting new chapter in the DPS storyline, our new film wing, DPS Cinematic. DPS Cinematic has been in the works for several years. The vision has remained constant: to create an annual line-up of fresh, artistic, festival-worthy film shorts released online. Throughout the journey we’ve prioritized: meaningful storytelling amidst storm-chasing and deep powder riding, with using the latest and greatest camera equipment and leading cinematographers, all-the-while showcasing our skis on the feet of the DPS Koalas.
As DPS Cinematic debuts on October 21st, we are pleased to join forces with our co-presenting sponsors whose shared mountain vision resonates with our own: Outdoor Research and Gore-Tex, whom we thank for their support.
In its inaugural 14/15 season, DPS Cinematic will release four film shorts, each about five minutes long and shot in distinct locations around the globe: Valle Nevado, Mt. Baker, Baldface, and Refugio Frey. We recently submitted our Refugio Frey episode, ‘Sun Dog’, to Banff Mountain Film Festival where it was recently selected as a finalist. Banff’s recognition is an accolade that re-affirms DPS Cinematic’s vision and commitment. We anticipate submitting more episodes for festival inclusions worldwide in the months to come.
So, stay tuned. DPS Cinematic will be a mainstay and we hope it brings as much excitement for you as it does for us to create. Film shorts will be released online this season and you can follow the schedule below:
