!! THE #SHADESOFWINTER FILMFEST IS BACK !!
Between the sea and the sky in search of Northern Lights in the Lyngen Alps in Norway, endless skiing possibilities below Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre in Patagonia, a multi-day ski touring adventure in the Austrian Alps, mental challenges through a sports career and the constant development of ideas, dreams and goals united in active life outdoors – that’s the #shadesofwinter FilmFest 2023, as usual, extraordinary.
