Bend Film Festival Presents 'Ski Bum: The Warren Miller Story'

Posted on in categories Film , Skiing & Snowboarding

Thursday October 10th. The documentary of legendary ski filmmaker, Warren Miller screens at the Bend Film Festival.  Ski legend Dan Egan is scheduled to attend.  More INFO HERE.

Based on a 2018 interview the 93-year-old Miller gave shortly before his death at his Orcas Island home, Ski Bum explores the techniques used by the veteran filmmaker, who also served as cinematographer, editor, producer — and often live narrator — of his films. Using interviews with famous daredevil skiers, never-before-seen outtakes, and home movies, Ski Bum is a must-see for any ripper or shredder forever in search of the gnarliest powder.

For decades, the ski season didn’t really begin until the latest spectacular skiing film was released by Warren Miller Productions, filled with balletic, slow-motion mountain footage of death-defying ski and snowboard stunts. Director Patrick Creadon’s Ski Bum — titled after the moniker the Seattle-area legend often used for himself — celebrates the life and art of one of the most prolific sports-documentary pioneers.
