2014 Film Festival Top 10
See all 10 finalists in the playlist above. We're conducting a public vote through March 23 - so watch the videos and like the ones you think are the best! Top five get Gerber Gear knives!
Congratulations to our 5th Annual Meadows Film Festival top 10 Finalists and especially this year's Festival winner Jake Woodard for his entry "Smiles All Around". Jake won the $500 cash prize. 2nd place went to Ryan Walker for "Can't Get Enough" the most photographically spectacular video with use of time lapse and great editing. Randa Shahin "MHM Ladies Collective" took 3rd with extraordinary riding talent and combination of POV and regular video. The top three received GoPro Hero Black series cameras, as well as Dakine logoed backpacks and the movie DVD collection from the Make A Hero foundation that all 10 finalists received.
POC helmets were awarded to McKenzie Huff, Jacob Oberlander and Randa Shahin for their entries. This year helmets were not required but POC wanted to recognize videos that exemplified the use of helmets and safe riding technique. POC supports the High Fives Foundation a Tahoe based organization dedicated to raising money and awareness for athletes that have suffered a life-altering injury while pursuing their dream in the winter action sports community.
