HomeLight Killington Cup Featured in Warren Miller Entertainment's Future Retro
In the first-ever digital release of a full-length Warren Miller feature film, Warren Miller Entertainment (WME) is excited to bring its audience the digital release of the brand’s 71st film, Future Retro. The film features the 2019 HomeLight Killington Cup in Killington, Vt. and two-time Olympic champion Mikaela Shiffrin's stunning performance, while U.S. Ski Team alumna and Olympian Kaylin Richardson headlines the segment.
In Future Retro, progressive, young female skiers Lexi duPont and Amie Engerbretson journey to the heart of deep-rooted ski culture in Switzerland, and freeskiers Baker Boyd and Victor Major rip the endless peaks of Iceland, using a 1,300-year-old farm as their base camp. A trio of world-class snowboarders including Elena Hight, Danny Davis, and Nick Russell, travel to Antarctica and witness the impact of climate change.
Legendary skiers Scot Schmidt and the Egan brothers show a new crop of athletes how they were responsible for the extreme-skiing movement of the ’80s and ’90s, and the next generation of skiers and riders show us what it means to challenge the status quo. From competitive triumph on the road to the podium at the World Cup in Killington to pushing boundaries of big-mountain skiing in Alaska, Future Retro will be that connection—past, present, and future.
As winter enthusiasts gear up to get outside this season, the health and wellness of the Warren Miller audience is considered a top priority. With this in mind, the world-renowned production company has opted to share the 2020 film via a premium, virtual film format in November 2020.
Like any Warren Miller film premiere, these virtual events will be lively and will act as the official kickoff to winter. Consisting of a one-hour virtual red carpet, with athlete appearances, behind-the-scenes interviews, sponsor shout-outs, and vintage throwbacks, these premieres will be hosted by U.S. Ski Team alumnus, Olympian and longtime Warren Miller narrator Jonny Moseley.
Viewers will be invited to transform their living room, garage, backyard, basement, or beyond into the ultimate ski film premiere venue. Small, socially-safe watch parties are welcome for the livestreaming events, and attendees can stream or cast the film from their internet browser onto their smart TVs or streaming devices via their smartphones or desktop. Viewers will have access to the event for up to 48 hours, and each virtual ticket includes up to 4 people–– complete with entries into the nightly door prizes, national sweepstakes, and up to four coupon codes. Should someone want to attend with more guests, they will be encouraged to purchase additional tickets.
The virtual tour will take place through three regional events across North America:
East Coast show: Saturday, Nov. 7 - Tickets & More
Mountain/Central show: Saturday, Nov. 14 - Tickets & More
West Coast show: Saturday, Nov. 21 - Tickets & More
“Hopefully the convenience and accessibility of the virtual experience will reach a new and wider audience, who may not have been able to attend a live show for geographical or other reasons,” says 20-year Warren Miller filmmaking veteran and producer Josh Haskins. “And of course we’re excited to provide the event atmosphere virtually to our dedicated longtime fans. They will just need to be their own bartenders during the show.”
