Last year’s inaugural Boston Winter Film Festival was such a hit that this year it has expanded into a two-day event, presenting some of the best skiing and riding films to be released this fall. Eighteen films will be shown Oct. 17-18 at the Revere Hotel’s Theater 1, with each attendee receiving a two-for-one ticket to both Jay Peak and Mount Snow.
Some of the films on this year’s schedule include Stept Productions’ “Mutiny,” “The Wallisch Project” from extreme skier Tom Wallisch, and “CRJ, The Chronicles of a Freeskiing Icon,” which looks back at the life of the late CR Johnson, who died when he hit a rock at Squaw Valley in 2010.
Tickets for the festival can be purchased in advance online, and begin at $20 for the Thursday or Friday pass, $30 for VIP access which allows entry into each night’s after-party. Tickets solely for the after party can be purchased for $5.
