    MULTIPLICITY has become a favorite for festival-goers. Imagine sitting around a campfire telling stories, then take that experience and multiply it. That’s MULTIPLICITY. The annual event, presented by Mountain Life Media, captures human beings’ rich tradition of storytelling, then elevates it, adding in visual elements of photography, slideshows and video. The result is best compared to a TEDTalk® on adrenalin, with stories brought to you by explorers, athletes, outdoor thought-leaders, and passionate personalities from the mountain world.

    Hosted by Mountain Life editor and emcee extraordinaire Feet Banks, MULTIPLICITY is a must-see celebration of true-mountain and adventure culture, and one hell of a good ride. Plus, the event is a special flagship fundraiser for the Spearhead Huts Project.

    This event premiered in 2013 and has been a sell-out success each year since – don’t miss out. Grab your tickets today.

    There will be a silent auction benefitting the Spearhead Huts project, an ambitious backcountry hut project in Whistler’s own backyard. Come out to support the cause.

Relying purely on originality, craft, speed and endurance, the OLYMPUS 72hr Filmmaker Showdown distills the art of film-making into its purest form – taking creative vision from concept to reality in record time in order for it to be enjoyed on the big screens by an audience of 1500+.

    2018 PRO PHOTOGRAPHER LINE UP:

In her work, she fosters an open, interactive environment with her subjects and brings their personalities to life with sharp and vibrant imagery. In both the commercial and editorial environments, she values hard work, teamwork and passion and leverages those principles to showcase talent, creativity and unique perspective with her award-winning action and lifestyle photography.

    Fred Mortagne
    Fred is a self-taught French director and photographer who is internationally acclaimed for his images of skateboarding and street photography.

Since 2013, French Fred closely collaborates with Leica camera, as one of their ambassadors. He currently lives and work in Lyon, France.

    Mortagne is fascinated by classic masters of B&W photography like Willy Ronis, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Joseph Koudelka, to name a few, as well as Anton Corbijn, who wrote the foreword for Attraper Au Vol.
    French Fred is a very unique phenomenon in the world of skateboarding photography. While the majority of sports photographers concentrate on athletic achievements, Mortagne produces a completely different perspective, by working exclusively in black and white and focusing on the style and aesthetics of the sport, being fascinated by the elegance of the movement. His dramatically composed photographs merge the plunging lines of the architecture with the skateboarders in flight, appearing to be  a natural part of the urban biotope. Being a skateboarder and a photographer spending most of his time in the streets, Fred Mortagne is naturally widening is photographic range, observing and capturing street and urban life from a privileged position.

    Roberto Alegria – WILDCARD PHOTOGRPAHER
    Roberto is a Spanish photographer based in Barcelona. He’s been passionate about photography since he was a child. Photography has always been one of his main hobbies, the other being skateboarding.
