Heads up, ski-movie makers: Europe’s signature freeski film happening, the High Five Festival, is currently soliciting entries for 2020.

The deadline for submissions is July 1, 2020. You can get all the details and enter your submission here. Keep in mind, you don’t have to deliver the final product by July. A trailer, preview or part of your movie will suffice for the jury to consider inclusion. If your movie is picked, you will have until September to submit the final version.

The High Five Festival is moving ahead with plans to hold the event in Annecy from 2-4 October, in the hopes that coronavirus restrictions will by then be loosened enough to allow it. We’ll keep you updated with any news here at Downdays. Until then, happy cutting!
