FVSEF shows Warren Miller film

Print Article

Powder hounds eagerly anticipating the winter season can get ready by watching Warren Miller Entertainment’s 69th full-length feature film “Face of Winter” during two showings this weekend in Whitefish.

The film, presented by the Flathead Valley Ski Education Foundation, celebrates the late, great Warren Miller, the man who became known as the “face of winter” throughout the industry.

This year, new and veteran athletes come together to pay tribute to the man who started it all. Included are Jonny Moseley, Marcus Caston, Seth Wescott, Forrest Jillson, Kaylin Richardson, Dash Longe, Anna Segal, Michael “Bird” Shaffer, and featured athletes of the U.S. Cross Country Ski Team, including gold medalist, Jessie Diggins. Watch as they visit some of Warren’s favorite places from Engleberg to Chamonix, British Columbia to Alaska, Chile, Iceland, New Zealand and more.

“The film is for anyone whose life (whether they realize it or not) was impacted by Warren Miller,” says Warren Miller Entertainment’s Managing Director Andy Hawk. “We are all the face of winter — from the athletes to the audience to the locals in far-off destinations or even at our home mountain. Warren recognized this, and this year’s film celebrates that.”

“Face of Winter” plays at the O’Shaughnessy Center downtown on Saturday, Nov. 3 and Sunday, Nov. 4.

“Warren Miller films have been a rite of passage into ski season for generations,” said Tim Hinderman, executive director of FVSEF. “The film is a fundraiser for FVSEF and helps subsidize student/athlete scholarships and coaches’ education expenses.”

On Saturday, doors open at 6 p.m., a short film plays at 6:30 p.m. and the main feature plays at 7 p.m. On Sunday, doors open at 3:30 p.m., a short film plays at 4 p.m. and the main feature plays at 4:30 p.m. Beer, wine and snacks will be available, and door prizes and a raffle will round out the evenings activities. Tickets are available in advance at https://fvsefwarrenmiller.brownpapertickets.com/ for $11.52 (includes handling fees), or at the door for $18 for adults and $12 for students under 18.
