The 'Freeride Filmfestival' is looking for the latest freeride films from the independent filmmaking scene. We aim to embrace the wide range of films in our program showcasing a variety of genres including adventure, expedition, portrait, comedy, fiction and art.

    Response from festival:

    Dear André! 5 Stars from our side for you, not just for your incredibly touching movie "Luzhba" but also for your honest and proffesional appearance during our festival. Good luck for your upcoming projects!

    Thank you for letting our film be a part of this years tour. It was amazing to be present at several stops and see the enthusiasm of your community in large sold out cinemas.
    I think having the undivided attention of a big crowed at multiple cinema stops has an incredible value, especially when social or environmental subjects are being discussed tied in with the joy and shared passion for freeriding.
    This being said, I wish you guys all the best for the future of the tour and that you will continue to use this voice in a meaningful way.
