iF3 2020 Broadcast is in planning…
As a result of the evolving situation surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, and in an effort to put our fans’ health and safety first, the iF3 Festival is going virtual, and will be broadcasting the annual rendezvous live from their studio in Montreal, Quebec on October 21 to 24 , 2020.
Our presenting partner, Audio-Technica Canada, will be supporting iF3 with the technical equipment necessary to operate the broadcast, which will include presentations of ski and snowboard films officially selected for the occasion, interviews with producers and athletes involved in the projects, and the 13th annual iF3 Movie Awards gala.
iF3 plans to broadcast the festival via a private channel, the specifics of which are to be determined at this time, and all iF3 media partners will be given the ability to embed the broadcast on their respective online platforms. This will provide skiers and snowboarders from all over the world with a unique opportunity to converse and react with their community virtually, all while watching the year’s best ski and snowboard films.
