Sherpas Cinema & The North Face take top honours at Cannes

Exciting news from The North Face and Sherpas Cinemas. The brand and Sherpas, a small production house based in Whistler, BC, were awarded a Silver Lion at the 71st Cannes Film Festival for the urban skiing short film, “Imagination: Tom Wallisch.” You may remember this piece we shared late last fall and inspired by a creative concept first realized by the late JP Auclair.

The film’s star and The North Face global athlete, Tom Wallisch commented, “having the video acknowledged amongst all the biggest names in film at Cannes is just insane. Our small crew of skiers, snowboarders, and fun loving mountain folk were able to create a film that competes with all the best! So much love and passion went into creating this piece and it really shows.
