1st International Ski Film Festival 1975

 

From SKI Magazine, January 1975:

FIRST-RATE FLICKS

In case you have a chance to see them, the winners of the First International Ski Film Festival held earlier this year in New York City are listed below; some or all of them should be making the free-click circuit of ski clubs and shops this very month.

Top prize winner was Willy Bogner’s “Skivision 74.” As with the other ski film winners, Bogner’s was shown in the Samsonite Theater at the Ski shows/Expo-winter ’74 put on by Harry Leonard during the early winter. Bogner (see SKI PEOPLE in this issue) has a marvelous eye and, in his film, gives you the benefit of that and a free-wheeling imagination.
