Rest in Powder is an independent snow film about a group of friends from the Kootenays.

In the film we are skiing and snowboarding in our favorite zones, in the mountains, in powder.

The film is a visual narrative of our snow experiences. It draws influence from our favorite aspects of rock star and soulful sports films while emphasizing atmospheric and aesthetic detail.

The film is entirely independent in that it is intentionally advertiser and distributor free.

It is not powered by energy drinks or corporations, and it is not trying to sell you anything, but if you like what you see, you can show your support by sharing the website with your friends, attending (or hosting) a premiere, ordering a DVD (in minimalistic recycled packaging, quantities limited), or donating towards a DRM-free download (using open-source software, not iTunes).

  • World premiere: Dec. 15, Capitol Theatre, 8 p.m., tickets: $12
  • DVD(s): limited quantities, minimalistic recycled packaging, available for pre-order, shipping January 2012.
  • DRM-free download: by donation, open source software, exclusively from our website, late winter 2012.
