–>> 1st up, Ski Movie Title: “MAKE BELIEVE”

Film Production Company: Teton Gravity Research
September 2020 Release Date

About the movie:

“Inspiration is evoked spontaneously and without intention…”

Sometimes it comes in the form of a photograph, a chance encounter on a chairlift, or a glimpse at a mountain never seen before. When combined with motivation, the spark of inspiration becomes a dream, and when pursued gives our lives a new purpose.

For 25 years TGR has focused on turning Make Believe into reality, from exploring powder stashes in our backyard playground to first descents on unnamed peaks, the ethos of “live the dream” has defined our adventures.

“MAKE BELIEVE” celebrates today’s athletes who have committed to this ethos, the ones who have fallen deeply in love with the mountain life, the people who have chosen to live their lives in a particular way, from inception to reality, the ones who choose to make and believe in their dreams.”

2020 NorCal drive-in movie screenings:

West Wind Sacramento Drive-in

–>> 2nd, Warren Miller’s 71st ski film, “Future Retro,” comes to the Bay Area via Live Streaming

Film Production Company: Warren Miller Entertainment

Release Date & Film Tour Info: this year’s ski/ride movie will be live streamed November 2020 TBA; keep tabs on announcement of movie streaming date, details at https://warrenmiller.com/events.

“Vermont embodies a quaint quintessential New England charm that one might expect from the Green Mountain State, but it is more than just winding backwoods roads and historic covered bridges: it’s also the heart of ski culture in the American Northeast. And no mountain embodies this Vermont ski scene more than Killington, host of the 2019 Audi Fis Women’s World Cup Race, where the fastest racers in the world gathered last November to lay their edges into Killington’s finest East Coast powder. Joining the 30,000 live spectators are former American alpine racer Kaylin Richardson and Killington native-turned-big-mountain skier Jim Ryan, who are ready to revel in the thrills and frills of World Cup action, while also laying down some corduroy carves themselves.”

Release Date & Film Info:

World Premiere September 16, 2020 – stream it free at your leisure.

Our outdoor playgrounds are in peril and our votes this November will decide their future. Professional snowboarder Jeremy Jones has watched winters change drastically during his 45 years spent in the mountains. More extreme weather, fewer snow days, and economic strain on mountain towns.

And yet, climate change remains a divisive issue. In the new film Purple Mountains, Jeremy seeks common ground in the heart of America’s purple states, having honest discussions with individuals who don’t see eye to eye with him.

About Vote.org – What is Vote.org?

Last updated on August 19, 2020

“Vote.org uses technology to simplify political engagement, increase voter turnout, and strengthen American democracy.

We work to ensure that the electorate matches the population.

Vote.org is the largest 501(c)(3) nonprofit, nonpartisan voting registration and get-out-the-vote (GOTV) technology platform in America. It has registered more than 4.5 million new voters, verified 10.5 million voters’ registration status, and has helped over 39 million website users by providing registration links and deadlines, polling location details, and other essential voting information for each state. Vote.org also leverages its research-backed GOTV program each year, targeting underserved voters in regularly scheduled and special elections.

To turn out the vote among young people and people of color, Vote.org partners with corporations and other organizations in the civic space, including Gannett Media Group’s USA Today, Vote Save America, and The Andrew Goodman Foundation. Vote.org has also launched exciting new partnerships in 2020 with The Webby Awards, NAACP Youth Coalition, GLSEN, wikiHow, and Young Entertainment Activists. Many of their corporate partners have signed on to Vote.org’s Election Day campaign, launched in 2018, which commits them to giving their employees paid time off to vote on Election Day. To date, 500 companies have signed the pledge.

With the onslaught of the COVID-19 pandemic in America, Vote.org recently added a page to its website, offering regularly updated, state-by-state information for voters whose primaries have been postponed or otherwise delayed. As the pandemic creates new barriers to safe and fair elections, Vote.org is working to keep voters engaged in the democratic process and prevent misinformation from dissuading them from participating in the 2020 election.

Vote.org’s mission is to use technology to simplify political engagement, increase voter turnout, and strengthen American democracy. With its new leadership team, led by CEO Andrea Hailey, Vote.org is on track to serve 12 times the number of people it served in 2018. The organization plans to turn out more than 5 million low-propensity voters in this fall’s presidential election.”
