Over 110 stops in 40 cities: the Alp-Con Cinema Tour brings the best outdoor films to a cinema near you.
With separate Bike, Mountain and Snow film blocks, the Alp-Con Cinema Tour is your chance to catch the year’s most exciting outdoor-sports films at tour stops across the German-speaking region. Here’s a brief recap of what the 2016 tour has on offer.
SNOW: The fluffy white film block
“Ruin and Rose” from MSP Films is an epic creative vision brought to life by the world’s best freeriders including Markus Eder, Bene Mayr and Fabio Studer. The most beautiful winter landscapes on Earth are stitched seamlessly together with incredible scenes from Africa’s Skeleton Coast, one of the planet’s oldest landscapes. Unlike anything you’ve seen before, the setting of this film brings fantasy to life, and not just for sports enthusiasts.
With their creative short films “Charakters on Skis” and “Daheem,” Midiafilm and Hanno Mackowitz bring us local riders’ passion for freeride. You don’t have to travel far to find it.
The tour stops guarantee brilliant image quality in full HD, breathtaking 5.1 sound and comfortable seating in selected cinemas in Austria, Germany and Italy. Headliners include top productions like Anthill Films, Bergkult Productions, Timeline Missions and MSP Films, while local productions like the IF3 Am Award winner Midiafilm, Alpsolut Moving Pictures and Hanno Mackowitz show the passion for sport, nature, travel and adventure. In addition, this year’s tour program also includes the best online clips that’ve earned more than just a click.
BIKE: The film block on two wheels
“Not2Bad” from Anthill Films shows what happens when some of the world’s best riders spend 30 days trying to discover everything that’s possible on two wheels.
“Cedarwood Trails” in an investigative sport documentary. Axel Kreuter and Sylvia Leimbruger travel deep into Africa to a trail-riding paradise with a disquieting side.
The short films “DreamRide,” “Ultra Romance” and “Pedal to Peaks” each bring their own special something to the screen.
MOUNTAIN: The film block in the heights
“Heimschnee” from Bergkult Productions follows a five-person group on their pursuit of a lifestyle beyond the bounds of society’s conventions. A ski, snowboard and alpine film of a different kind, filmed exclusively in Tyrol.
In “La Liste,” Swiss freeride great Jérémie Heitz chases a list of his greatest challenges: ski descents on the Alps’ most spectacular 4,000-meter peaks that show these mountains’ histories in a new light.
“The Art of Climbing” from Red Bull Athletes Special Projects combines Kilian Fischhuber’s spectacular climbing project in the Rätikon region with watercolor painting, showing why climbing is continually viewed as an art form.
