Warren Miller’s 71st feature film, Future Retro, will stream across the United Kingdom at 8pm on November 27, 2020, in the first-ever digital release of a full-length Warren Miller feature film.
In Future Retro, progressive, young female skiers Lexi duPont and Amie Engerbretson journey to the heart of deep-rooted ski culture in Switzerland, and freeskiers Baker Boyd and Victor Major rip the endless peaks of Iceland, using a 1,300-year-old farm as their base camp. Meanwhile, trio of world-class snowboarders Elena Hight, Danny Davis and Nick Russell travel to Antarctica and witness the impact of climate change.
Legendary skiers Scot Schmidt and the Egan brothers show a new crop of athletes how they were responsible for the extreme-skiing movement of the ’80s and ’90s, and the next generation of skiers and riders show us what it means to challenge the status quo. From competitive triumph on the road to the podium at the World Cup in Killington to pushing boundaries of big-mountain skiing in Alaska, Future Retro will be that connection – past, present and future.
As winter enthusiasts gear up to get outside this season, the health and wellness of the Warren Miller audience is considered a top priority, so the world-renowned production company has opted to share the 2020 film via a premium, virtual film format.
Consisting of behind-the-scenes interviews, sponsor shout-outs and vintage throwbacks, these virtual events will be lively and will act as the official kickoff to winter, as Warren Miller premieres so often do!
Viewers will be invited to transform their living room, garage, backyard, basement or beyond into the ultimate ski film premiere venue. Small, socially-safe watch parties are welcome for the live-streaming events, and attendees can stream or cast the film from their internet browser onto their smart TVs or streaming devices via their smartphones or desktop. Viewers will have access to the event for up to 48 hours, and each virtual ticket can be used on multiple household devices (up to 4) and include entry into the major prize draw.
Josh Haskins, 20-year Warren Miller filmmaking veteran and producer, said: “Hopefully the convenience and accessibility of the virtual experience will reach a new and wider audience, who may not have been able to attend a live show for geographical or other reasons. And of course we’re excited to provide the event atmosphere virtually to our dedicated long-time fans. They will just need to be their own bartenders during the show.”
