The winter of 2018 provided Matchstick Productions with an opportunity to push the action sports industry in a new direction. For the first time Matchstick is featuring a cast with equal parts male and female skiers. Typically, ski films feature an overwhelming male presence with one or two female athletes, ALL IN rewrites that formula. When a group of hard-charging women approached Matchstick with the desire to spearhead a trip with a select crew of their male counterparts, the team at MSP jumped at the opportunity.
ALL IN, Matchstick Productions 2018 epic ski film delivers a first of its kind experience. This isnt your typical Women can shred too film, this is a kick-ass ski film that just happens to feature as many women as men. Directed by Scott Gaffney, this film will embody the spirit of past Matchstick films with high-action ski segments, visually stunning imagery and engaging humor. Shot in exotic locations over the course of 2018, ALL IN will excite skiers across the globe. Follow the crew from the lift-accessed terrain of Snowbird to the dreamworlds of Japan and Alaska amplified by a soundtrack that will be on everyones ski playlist next year. This film is light on story, high on action and full of fun loving personality. ALL IN is a reference to the commitment the athletes have to their sport while simultaneously alluding to the inclusionary nature of skiing.
Two shows on October 18.
