France’s biggest freeski film festival is coming up, and this year’s event promises to be “the best ever High Five and iF3 together,” says organizer Gaylor Pedretti.


It’s that time again: in a month, France’s freeskiing festival will be back. The High Five Festival isn’t just a movie screening, but a tribute to the spirit of freeskiing itself—it’s the place where the pros come as freeski fans to tell their summer stories and winter dreams, and lose some memory at a party or two. It’s a very lively place where livers are abused as much as the eyes are pleased. Here’s an incomplete list of what medicine this year’s High Five will offer. Tomorrow we’ll have an interview with the Doctor himself, High Five organizer Gaylord Pedretti.
