Chamonix, France– One of a kind, this event brings together athletic performance and a creative and artistic dimension to a film and photography festival. Following the growing success of the Nissan Outdoor Games, it has become THE event at the core of today’s action sports world.



5 sport disciplines, stars of the film

The concept is to create a 5-minute film uniting 5 outdoor sports activities: Mountaineering, Skiing, Snowboarding, Paragliding & Hang gliding, BASE Jumping & Wingsuit flying.



The world’s best specialists in each discipline utilize their creativity and sense of adaptation to present their sport and their level of performance to enrich a scenario.



In 2008, renowned athletes participated such as Karine Ruby (FRA - snowboard Olympic Champion), Liv Sansoz (FRA - climbing World Champion), Julian Boulle (SAF - one of the world’s best wingsuit flyers), Aurelien Ducroz (3rd place skier of the Freeride World Tour 2008), Eric Themel (AUT – one of the world’s top snowboarders) and many more.



7 days for 5 minutes of sensational images

The teams will have 7 days (from Saturday February 14th to Friday February 20th, 6pm) to film and edit a short 5-minute film: a definite challenge.



1 playground, the Mont Blanc mountain range

The Mont Blanc mountain range, a unique scene for outdoor sports, yet also demanding terrain the teams will have as an amazing backdrop for their film productions. Each team will be accompanied by mountain guides.



5 teams & an elite cast
