The Reels is the only snowboarding film festival that honours the best productions and riders of the year. The Reels takes a look at all the latest films and web series and is back for the second year in Annecy, France.
How else would you want to start the winter season other than being in a HUGE cinema with all the film crews/riders, eating popcorn and having massive drinking sessions?!
30 films were rolled out at the three day event. Friday night included the Golden Reels Ceremony which awarded all of this year’s films and riders with various titles. The Reels 2013 was hosted by Dingo and Danny Kass and the judges included Eddie Wall, Peter Line, David Benedek, Nico Droz and Ingemar Backman.
