What You'll Get

Watching a movie gives audiences a chance to capture that moment’s resonant je ne sais quoi, which is French for “popcorn smell.” Rejoice in artful concessions with today’s Groupon to the Backside Ski + Snowboard Film Festival. Choose from the following options:

  • For $15, you get two festival tickets for Wednesday, October 26 (a $30 value).
  • For $15, you get two festival tickets for Thursday, October 27 (a $30 value).
  • For $25, you get two passes, which cover Wednesday, October 26 and Thursday, October 27 (a $50 value).

The festival officially begins Tuesday, October 25 with a free first-come, first-served film screening open to all.

Held within the University of Alberta’s Myer Horowitz Theatre, the Backside Ski + Snowboard Film Festival culls some of the choicest selections from the slopes-themed film scene for a three-day visual fete. On Wednesday, October 26, festival attendees and their abominable snow dates experience a double feature beginning with All.I.Can, a film that meditates on skiers, sherpas, and green thinking, followed by the fast-paced exploits of The Grand Bizarre, in which extreme skiers move through snowy half-pipes and perform feats of extreme snowman building. The evening of October 27 brings 13 O’Clock, a film chronicling freestyle snowboarders in locales across the globe, and Attack of La Niña, that covers heart-stopping North American storms in high-definition.

Throughout the festival, guests have opportunities to enter drawings, with prizes such as a season’s pass from Backside Tours and a signed photograph of King Kong snowboarding down the Empire State Building. Snow-film buffs who bring along a donation to the Edmonton Foodbank or a coat for the Coats for Kids drive are entered into an additional drawing.
