FILMS

FABRIC: Heritage

Embracing identity and tradition to empower future generations of Indigenous youth, snowboarder Spencer O’Brien finds her voice as an Indigenous leader with help from Sandy Ward and Rose Archie, while Hawaiian surfer Mainei Kinimaka preserves ancestral tradition through stewardship of language and tradition.

 

BEYOND BEGBIE

A short film that explores the history of the land and its shared significance to Indigenous groups and mountain sports enthusiasts.

Standing tall over the Revelstoke valley Mount Begbie has inspired an entire community. It is iconicized in the logos and names of local businesses, featured heavily in artists’ works, is photographed by every visiting tourist, and most importantly of all, is explored by the outdoor enthusiast – no matter the season.

Climbing Mt Begbie is a “right of passage” for every hiker, climber, sledder, and skier who chooses to make Revelstoke their home.

While this peak has created an entire contemporary culture in Revelstoke, its name and story only represent colonial history, with no reference to the Indigenous heritage of this land.

Is it the outdoor community’s responsibility to help change this?

Featuring: Nahanni Mckay, Ariel Hill, Dale Tomma, Tim Patterson, and Shelly Boyd

Directed by Zoya Lynch | Produced by Nat Segal |Director of Photography – Colleen Gentemann

Editing by Colleen Gentemann & Ryan Paul Collins

 

Part of the proceeds of the event will go towards funding free winter backcountry programs offered to queer and BIPOC participants by the local non-profit Open Mountains.

This event is supported by the Revelstoke Chamber of Commerce, School District 19, Tourism Revelstoke, Picture, FATMAP, and Arts Revelstoke.
